Independent film work has been very active this summer with a number of projects going into post-production (editing) now that school is about to begin again. That means it’s time to begin preparing for the next round and here’s a great project that anyone who’s ever had an itch to see their words acted out on the big screen. ***Springfield 417- The Movie project for 2009!***
Friends, writers, gather ’round… We’re still gathering scenes from different writers to put together into a vignette movie of Springfield, Missouri. The working title is: “SPRINGFIELD 417— Periods of Revelation.” Projects consist of 5 to 7 minute shorts that can be filmed somewhere in Springfield, Missouri, and that deal with compelling storylines. (If you’ve seen the movie “Paris, Je T’aime” it will be a similar production in terms of vignetted storylines.) The subtitle, “Periods of Revelations” is the theme of the movie. Something should be revealed that changes the protagonist’s life, direction or maybe it changes the movie’s direction. “My goal is to build a local, interacting community of movie-makers and artists (including musicians, writers, dancers, etc.) that will work together to help bolster each other in their various projects. Hopefully this project will be a catalyst towards that end,” explains project director Steve Olson. Deadline for storylines will be:
