We had so much fun making Ninth Level, that Jerry (Ochoa, director) wrote and was awarded grant funds through Houston's SouthWest Alternative Media Project (SWAMP) to produce another film featuring a brand new Two Star Symphony score - it was our first project using a RedCam, but we had a fantastic cast and crew and it turned out beautifully. Not only did This Neighborhood get a great response when it premiered at the 2013 Houston CinemaArts Festival presentation of the Short Filmmakers' showcase, it was also accepted to and screened at:
2014 Action On Film Festival in Monrovia, California
2014 Unreal Film Festival in Memphis, Tennessee
2014 New York City Independent Film Festival in NYC
2014 Molins de Rei in Barcelona, Catalonia, where it was nominated for 6 awards in the short films competition, and received a Judges' Special Selection!
We will release This Neighborhood online soon - but while you wait impatiently for its release, another local Houston band - Glass the Sky - liked Jerry's previous directorial efforts so much they asked him to make them a video. So we produced and Jerry directed Touch, which. is. GORGEOUS. thanks to the heroic efforts of our talented cast and crew. You can peruse pictures of said crew and talent looking like epic set deities behind the scenes here. Or not. But you have the choice.
