Same little movie, NEW whopping post!

So it’s been months since we’ve last updated you, but everybody goes into hibernation this time of year…even if it winter hasn’t acted like winter normally does.

BUT…we’ve got a lot to tell you about, so I’ll give it to you list style so you don’t have to sift through paragraphs of nonsense to find out the real news.

But first…

1) PORTLANDIA – Yes, GREAT show!  Hilarious!  And yes, we’re going.  We’ve been accepted into the POW Fest.  Nothing to do with prisoners or war, and everything to do with Portland Oregon Women’s Film Festival. Victor, Ken and the family will also be attending, Portland is their neck of the woods after all.  10,000 Trees will be screening Saturday, March 10th at 3pm.

2)  LA LA Land – Before we get ahead of ourselves with the land of Portland, we’ll be in Los Angles for 12th Annual Emerson Film Festival.  Our film is screening along with pals, Matt Figler, John Pouliot, Rachel Globe , and others.  At the screening, there will be a celebration around the groundbreaking of the new Emerson College Los Angeles campus, which is also occurring on Thursday, March 8th!  Alumni, brace yourself, you’re about to be hit with a wave of jealousy.  Can we do college again?

3) DURANGO – We won’t be there, but our film will.  Sarah B. is knee deep in grad school and never in a million years would I miss attending my hometown fest: True/False, so we decided to pass on attending Durango Independent Film Festival.  Our first real acceptance means a lot and we’re excited to be a part of this one, even if we can’ t physically be there.

4) the GREEN – Participating in all of these exciting events costs quite a bit of money.  If you never got around to making a donation to this project, now is a perfect opportunity to help us out with the costs of burning blu rays, plane tickets, and finishing up the audio mix.  We’ve even said goodbye to Bank Of America and hello to Cambridge Savings Bank.  DONATE HERE!

5) LAST MINUTE MIXINGBradford Krieger, founder of New Neighbor Records, has graciously stepped up to the plate and filled the shoes of our original audio connoisseur Austin Plocher who left us for Brooklyn.  Brad, Pro Tools, and I have been slaving away, cleaning up the mix before we screen at the upcoming festivals.  This guy is truly a life saver and I highly recommend you check out the work he’s done on a bunch of different projects.

6) SCREENINGS PAST & FUTURE – We had a great screening, organized by Bob Nesson, in December at the Museum of Science in Boston.  We screened along with other environmental works, including poetry, short stories, and comedy sketches.  If you’re in the Boston area and still haven’t seen the film, this program will be going on TOMORROW, January 31st, at 7pm in the Bright Family Screening Room.

We’ll also be screening 9pm Monday, February 6th at Lorem Ipsum Bookstore in Inman Square with Roses On My Table, a short documentary by Ethan Lolerstein on the Wingnut Anarchist Collective.  Check out the Facebook event page here!

7) FAMILY TREE – Lastly, I’d like to plug a project my aunt, Paula Ginsburg, has been working on for as long as I can remember.  The book is called One Simple Thing, and while it may appear to be a story of children, it brings up a big truth that all ages need to acknowledge and act on.  Check out the book’s blog here, and if you like what you see, purchase it here!

I hope the first month of this new year has treated you kindly.  Thank you for reading!
