“First Run” Awards

As you may have heard, “Sheol” had it’s first public screening at NYU’s First Run Film Festival this past weekend, and it was received with great aplomb.  We were honored with several awards from our screening block:

Audience Choice Award

“Sheol” was the audience’s favorite film! This means a ton to us – thank you! Read about it on the First Run Blog.

Producing Award – Ryan Patch & Adam Raichilson

Special Commendation for Cinematography – Andrew Michael Ellis

Special Commendation for Production Design – Gian Marco Lo Forte & Carmen Cardenas

Original Score Award – Sam Estes

This is truly exciting to have the film received with such open arms, and for the people who worked so hard creating the world of “Sheol” receive recognition!  We eagerly await the Wasserman Finalists and Awards to be announced on Monday, April 4th, and hope we get some festival-wide awards!

A special thanks to the 75+ people who came out to support and see “Sheol”, it means the world to us!

Come to see “Sheol” premiere @ NYU’s First Run

Hello, devoted Sheolians.  I wanted to personally invite you all to the first ever public screening of “Sheol”, which will be taking place at NYU’s First Run Film festival, on Saturday, March 26th, 8pm. It’s a great time spot, and so we’re hoping to pack the theater out with the “Sheol” family of cast, crew, fans and supporters, and would be honored if you came, cheered, and then hit the afterparty (details to follow) with us to catch up with everyone!

This event is open to all and cheap ($6 or so for a ticket to see 5 short films), and we’d love to see you come out for the movie!

Check out and RSVP to the official Facebook event page here, and the film’s First Run page here. Hope to see everyone there!

Premiere Schedule Announced!

Hey Sheolians -

The question has been asked numerous times: “So, when can we see the film?”  Now, finally, I have an answer.

Saturday, March 26th at 8:00pm.

We got one of the best, prime spots in NYU’s First Run Festival, Saturday night, and I hope that everyone will be able to come out and see the film.  We’ll be screening with and around some great films, including my friend Jac Graminga’s “Infallable” in our block, and directly after our block at 10pm,  a film I’ve been dying to see – Ruth Du’s “SIX ’55″ about Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl”.

More details will be posted as they become available, including info about the party we’ll have afterward.  But in the meantime, block out your schedules for that night, and watch www.firstrunfestival.com which (I’m told) will have more information next week.
