If you have ever wondered what occupies some of my time, I (along with other Walpole Player’s friends) spent a day filming for Gail Golec (a “player” creative genius) recently for her entry in this year’s NO FILM FILM FESTIVAL competition. Last year she won and hopefully will again this year.
The No Film Film Festival is an international contest that challenges start up filmmakers to produce a short digital film, this year based on a popular 1980’s movie. The film had to be completed in just one week’s time. This year eighteen teams from across the country answered the call with only fifteen teams surviving the exhaustive task.
On Saturday, June 29th, the films premiered on the largest screen in southern Vermont at the world renowned Bellows Falls Opera House. We had over 40 friends in the audience, and today Gail’s film was made public. I am thrilled to share it here, and you may recognize me. Fortunately I was able to remember (for two minutes) what Gail told me to do each time. Enjoy, and share.
