I attendedÂ the Ozarks Foothills Film Fest this past weekend and had to rave about it.
Not only did I get to see some great films (local, short, feature, documentary, animation, you name it!) I also participated in a screenwriting workshop taught by indie writer/director Gordy Hoffman.Â Gordy is a smart talented guy (go watch his movie Love Liza and youâ€™ll see what I mean) and I left the workshop ready to attack my script & ready to hammer out the kinks in my 3rd draft.
I talked to A LOT of people about 45 RPM. Everyone is eager to see more and a few more filmmaking hands have offered their skills to the production.Â Very encouraging stuff!
Highlight of the festival had to be watching Fritz Langâ€™s restored classic Metropolis with the world-renowned Alloy Orchestra performing live.Â Not only is the film a favorite of mine but the energy and creativity of the live soundtrack was nothing short of transcendent.
