Receiving the Post-Alliance Scholarship from NMWIF was a wonderful gift for two of our short films that we funded ourselves and needed help with finishing costs in post in order to make film festival cut off dates this year and next. With the monies received we were able to afford audio sweetening and color correction on both Carolus Magnus and Father Lucius and lock those films. Carolus Magnus has since gone on to screen and be well received in England, California and recently a few weeks ago in Santa Fe at the SFIFF. Father Lucius has been slaying it too on the festival circuit. Short films are really micro versions preparing you to make macro-level features--I love making little gems. And also in the case of CM --I have gotten a lot of feedback from audiences that people wanted to know more about this story--which has prompted me to continue to work on expanding it into a feature film and that is exciting. I'm producing another short film in January, The Holy Word, that I am thrilled about, working with Sarah Maese, a gifted young screenwriter which will be the 2nd film in a year for me that reflects on our relationships with Catholicism (comedy).
