Falling For You

Over the past five months I’ve had the pleasure of editing this indie feature comedy. Shot in 2014 with local actors and crew, the film is coming together nicely. We’re looking toward festival submission in 2016 with fundraising for finishing expenses currently underway. Longline: a woman with a clown phobia falls in love with her worst nightmare. I think you can tell in this scene what’s going on by a roundelay of looks — who knows what, and who doesn’t know yet. See if you can figure it out. Starring Sara Pavlak McGuire, Brian Pastor, Krista Atkinson, and Jason Peck. Directed by Melissa Albertario, written by Jason Peck, shot by Lance Soltys, and edited by yours truly.

 

Women and Children and You

This past summer, the owners of the iconic Women and Children First bookstore decided to retire after 35 years in business, and handed the reins over to two store employees, Lynn Mooney and Sarah Hollenbeck. Although the bookstore has been a Chicago landmark for independent booksellers and savvy readers for years, Lynn and Sarah have big plans for its future, and launched a fundraising campaign on IndieGoGo to raise $35,000 for much needed space improvements. Flicker Effects was hired to create the video (based on a script they wrote), and now they are very close to their goal! (Warning: lots of kids, so the cute factor for this video is very high.)
