Those of you who have followed our film from the beginning will know that Southern Utah was where our project came to life. What was only a dream for a few young and eager first time filmmakers was made possible thanks to the support and a generous grant from a small town called Kanab. It was been a long journey from when we shot the film to where we are now. We spent a lot of time in post production, tweaking and re-tweaking. We had a few screenings and learned what was working and what needed to be fine tuned. Finally, a few weeks ago, we had our first screening of the completed project and was honored to win “Best Feature” “Best Cinematogrpahy” and “Best Score” at the 2009 Bend Film Festival.
Tonight Erica Harrell (producer), Eric Ernst (writer), Scott Uhlfelder (Cinematographer), my wife Laura C. Lopez-Daneau and I will travel back to Kanab to share a screening with the town at the 2009 Red Rock Film Festival. This place is very special to us and returning with the film evokes many emotions. We’ll make sure to blog some pictures over the weekend, so please stay tuned.
