I'm so proud to say that the short film I production managed in 2014 is receiving extensive festival recognition already. Off the back of this short about a young man coming out to his small-town family, director Gsus Lopez has been selected as a director for the Berlinale Talents 2015 at the 65th Berlinale - the Berlin International Film Festival (congrats Gsus!) Not only that, but the film's also made it to the official selection in the Merlinka and the Kyiv International Film Festivals.
A melding of domestic small town life and bizarre, Lynchian horror, OUT is a film I'm more than happy to say I've been a part of. Not only does it raise LGBT awareness, it's a testament to the young talent that exists in the industry today. The cast and production team on this film were a pleasure to work with and most of them were under the age of twenty-five and at the start of their careers. No one complained when an entire day was lost due to a dodgy camera. No one moaned about the long hours or cramped set. None of us were paid, and yet all of us were happy to be a part of such an interesting project.
The film's being submitted to major film festivals internationally this year, so all we can show is a short trailer. I'll be keeping this blog updated with developments as and when they happen but for now, check out Gsus' other stuff.
