Nashville. What a city. What a festival. On Saturday 22nd, we held the world premier of Skin Deep, as part of the Dark Futures collection of short films.
We were very grateful and inspired to be counted amongst such talented film makers. Knock Knock - our collections only comedy, Directed by David Shaman (funny in person) was amongst our favourites. The Tunnel by André Øvredal and Kyro by Christoph Heimer were visually speculator. Blizzard's The Last Bastion - an in game short film for Overwatch - was also included, highlighting the standard of productions. We would also just like to mention DeKalb Elementary of the Crisis Mode collection - Directed by Reed Van Dyk - as our pick for best short film of the festival. A personal favourite pick goes out to Without Name, Directed by Lorcan Finnegan. An Irish feature with so many stunning visuals it will leave film makers thirsty to up their game. It certainly did me.
Representing everyone from Skin Deep at Nashville was Director Tim Willrich, Actress Helen Kennedy, Executive Producer Josh Chadwick and Writer/Producer Harry Chadwick.
Tim Willrich and Helen Kennedy answered questions as part of our Q and A. Some sessions can begin quite stunted. No one knows what to ask. But I'm happy to say we had a variety of insightful questions relating to Skin Deep, with many positive reviews.
A peek at our films listing in the festival and the log line we used. What do you think? Would you want to watch it?
Finally, the grand Regal Hollywood 27 cinema, hosting 27 screens for an occupancy of nearly 5000. And now the new location of Nashville's film festival.
We would like to thank everyone involved with the festival, including all staff - with a special mention to Sean Volk, Programming Intern and host of our film - for making us feel so welcome. Until next time Nashville.
