WORLD PREMIERE SCREENING
With several Houston filmmakers.
With a desire to help Houston-area filmmakers to develop their craft, Southwest Alternate Media Project (SWAMP) inaugurated the Houston Short Film Fund in 2013.
The winning filmmakers completed their projects in early October, with the help of professional mentors arranged by SWAMP. Music, score, and sound FX were provided by Barry Coffing of musicsupervisor.com. The films will have their first public screening at this event, accompanied by earlier work by the artists.
Kathryn Kane, Sing-Song: a 50’s period film following Jeannette, a little girl consumed with resentment toward her older sister, the seemingly perfect Carol Anne, but she soon learns her sister is the true solace in an unfair world.
Lauren Kelley, Burlap Interior: a stop motion animated short that depicts everyday life situations in the interiors of automobiles in a jittery absurd nonlinear narrative.
Douglas Newman, Bellows and Buttons: a profile of Gabbanelli Accordions, one of Houston’s musical treasures for over 50 years.
Jerry Ochoa, This Neighborhood: a deeply disturbed man who spends his days spying on people and his nights murdering them, convinced he has to kill everyone to save mankind.
