Dallas Indie Festival To Screen Odds or Evens

Dallas-Indie-Fest

This is certainly a pleasant surprise. The Dallas Indie Festival has invited us to screen our short film, and it’s all thanks to our talented Director of Photography, Jeff Adair.

After seeing Jeff’s diverse body of work in the field of film and video, the folks at the Dallas Indie Festival were quite impressed.  They were kind enough to ask Jeff to screen Odds or Evens at this year’s festival – and the answer was a resounding YES!

In fact, our short firm is part of the festival’s opening night program.  Even the Dallas Observer gave our film two thumbs up.

Showtimes are as follows:

Thursday, June 19, 2014
Film Block 1 – 5:30-7:30pm

Saturday, June 21, 2014
Film Block 1 – 3:00 -5:00pm

Location:
Bath House Cultural Center Theater

People often ask – why the hell did you make a short film? Good question. Why did we make a short film? We certainly didn’t get rich off of it.

In this recent article in Connect 2 Media & Entertainment, the answer as to why shorter is sometimes better may provide some insight.

And what the hell… Odds or Evens is mentioned in the article.

Don’t miss Odds or Evens’ very own lead actor, Charles Baker, tonight on the Conan O’Brien Show on TBS (11 pm EST/10pm CST). Charlie will be sitting in on piano with Conan’s house band, The Basic Cable Band.

For those who may not know, Charlie is pretty damn good on the ivory keys.  His prowess was featured on Breaking Bad and is duly noted in this video interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
