I had a great time at the Breaking Fate Entertainment Mountain of Laughs Comedy Festival last weekend in Gatlinburg, Tennessee! Two films from my Fauxmercials series screened at the event including "The Best A Man Can Get," which opened the evening block of films, and "Depends." It was awesome to see them on a big screen before an audience!
What's more - my film "The Best A Man Can Get" won Director's Choice Award! The award was granted to me by the Festival Director and Breaking Fate Entertainment President Willy Adkins, and my mom managed to snap a few quick shots of my award acceptance, haha.
Around the first intermission, the festival featured a live performance - a ventriloquist! Kyle and Crew did an awesome job, and I am a huge fan of ventriloquists (I totally wanted to do that...and I sorta still do), and so it made for a fun break between films.
Breaking Fate Entertainment also hosts other events in the state, including two other film festivals. This festival may not be around next year, but perhaps I'll enter some other Breaking Fate festivals - their Chicago Horror Film Festival is huge!
My mom and I made a whole trip out of this event, something to do together before I head to New York in June. Despite the overcast and rainy weather, we managed to tour around and take photos! She also took the photos at the festival, and thanks a lot mom!
It was great to meet everyone, and have my work seen by others. The films inspired new ideas and storytelling devices. You can check out my films on Vimeo, and join my newsletter for other events and updates with my work!
