Last weekend’s gathering of local filmmakers and film fans, including some of the participants of Enzian’s Young Filmmaker Summer Camp, made for a unique FilmSlam # 8. A solid crowd of 70 or so viewers took in the 8-film program and voted on their favorites (though MISSION Y (BECAUSE MISSION X FAILED) was not eligible since Enzian was intimately involved with its production). Taking 1st Place and receiving a bye into December’s Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase was Bradley Kelly’s A LOT, a short about a businessman on his way to reconcile with his estranged wife who must first deal with a parking lot attendant. Congrats as well to 2nd place winner Daniel Robert Scherr for his THE GOOD DOCTOR and 3rd Place winner Joe Malys for his DAY OF THE MUMMY.
And a shout out to FilmSlam programmer and host John Theisen for his latest bit of media coverage on the front page of the August 2 issue of The Forum, a free local paper produced by the Orlando Sentinel. Way to go John!
