Donation Drive created by "Low and Behold" filmmakers to help Gulf Coast Recovery

Don’t know what to do with that extra swag? The filmmakers behind “Low And Behold“, in conjunction with Sidetrack Films, The Blackhouse Foundation and the Louisiana Film Commission, have announced a donation drive to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans. “Low and Behold”, a movie about post-Katrina victims trying to mend their lives, was filmed on location in New Orleans and was made by Zack Godshall(co-writer/director) and Barlow Jacobs(co-writer/producer/lead actor) and a supplemental cast and crew of other LA natives, many of them real victims of the hurricane. Jared Moshe, of Sidetrack Films said in prepared statement, “This initiative affords all of us the opportunity to take one of the excesses of Sundance and use it to help those ordinary people trying to carry on with their lives in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.” A drop-off station at The Blackhouse, Buona Vita, 628 Heber Avenue between Park and Main Street in Park City, Utah will be open to accept material and monetary donations from January 20-29; post-Sundance, Sidetrack FIlms will continue to accept donations.
