To say there's a lot going on for Kissing Habit films would be a bit of an understatement! Things have definitely been busy, and I have a lot of exciting news to share, so let's dive right into it!
I want to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone who supported nightwalk during the STORYHIVE competition. While we didn't win the "top prize" in Alberta (which went to the very deserving, "This is Not a Passport Photo" - if you haven't watched it yet, do so now), in my mind, the real prize was getting to make the film, and we did that, and that is a huge, fantastic opportunity.
The next step for nightwalk is, I hope, film festivals. It's been submitted to a number of genre and related film festivals, and the waiting game for results is on! So make sure you stay tuned to our social media accounts to be the first to know where and when it's being screened. It's also available on Telus Optik Local TV.
The Disappearing Act
The Disappearing Act, which got put on hold when nightwalk won a spot in STORYHIVE, is now back in post-production. It's definitely behind schedule based off my original plan, but there's no chance I'm going to rush it and have it be anything less than the beautiful and moving story I know it is. I'm currently working on a sneak peek of the film to submit to the next episode of Metro Shorts here in Edmonton, so if you're curious about the film, that's a good opportunity to catch a glimpse; it won't be publicly available for a while yet.
Again, keep an eye on our social media - I will be sharing sneak peeks and behind-the-scenes shots as work on The Disappearing Act progresses!
STORYHIVE... wait, what?
Doing two rounds of STORYHIVE in a row would be a recipe for madness, right?
Sign me up!
I'm teaming up with one of my favourite local bands, Brother Octopus, to work on a new music video, and I think you're all going to love it. It's very...Albertan.
And that's all I'll say for now. More details as they become available!
