I’ve asked the filmmakers from the SXSW 2007 “Emerging Visions” section to give us all an update on their projects. Keep an eye out for more updates to come. Today, we have Ryan Jones, the director of the disturbing Fred Phelps doc portrait Fall From Grace:
A lot has been happening with Fall From Grace after the exciting premiere at SXSW. The film was sold to Showtime and will premiere sometime during the second half of November. On November 16, ABC’s 20/20 is doing a piece that will feature myself and the movie. To have major national publicity right before the national broadcast premiere is so exciting, and I keep reminding myself that this documentary started as a film school project at the University of Kansas. The film is in the process of being purchased by Netflix for DVD distribution, as well. I have just recently moved to New York City where I am in early development for my next documentary, which I should begin filming around Thanksgiving. Hopefully it will be ready for submission to SXSW 2009!
