“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!

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.

“The Sheol Express” Pulls In – Premiere Info

I’ve got some extremely exciting news for everyone!

Sheol Express on Tape

Another version of “The Sheol Express” (beta release 4) has been completed, printed to tape, and submitted on HDCam to NYU’s First Run Film Festival earlier this week.  (Before someone says something – I know the tape pictured is a DigiBeta.  We submitted the HDCam – this is the SD master.)  The film is almost finished – there’s just a few last VFX items to be stricken from the list.  Most are small fixes that will only be evident once the film is projected in it’s 2k digital glory on a large screen – the version submitted will screen fine for the judges.

Thus, the premiere of “The Sheol Express” will be at the NYU First Run Film Festival, held from the 24th of March – 4th April 2011.  More details will follow, we promise, but know that the film is indeed alive, and about to be unleashed on the world!
