“Suffice it to say, everybody writes. Whether it’s a little old lady in Dubuque or an Alaskan fisherman in Anchorage, they all write. And they all have that one great screenplay in them that will make a great movie. Then there are those who have a great script and they’re trying to get it around but can’t get financing? Or, the film is in the can, but how does gone get completion funds and/or distribution? It’s every independent filmmaker’s dilemma: Where do I go to get financing? Who should I trust?

El Inmigrante reviewed – Variety

Documentaries about illegal aliens crossing over from Mexico are plentiful these days as the national debate over immigration waxes hotter. What distinguishes “El Inmigrante” is less the dramatic shooting death and miscarriage of justice at its center than the unusual sensitivity and openness of filmmakers John Sheedy, David Eckenrode and John Eckenrode to the distinctive rhythms and belief systems of people on both sides of the border. Arrestingly composed docu, well traveled on the fest circuit, should safely emigrate to cable. Read full article…

Page Ostrow to give presentation at United Nations Film Festival

Film is arguably the most influential medium around, with the power to educate, inspire, frighten, and delight. Used skillfully, it can change the way people think, how they feel, and how they choose to spend their lives. Although it has grown in popularity in recent years, the documentary is still the stepchild of film. Feature films get the lion’s share of the attention, distribution deals, A-list actors, and financing. But that seems to be changing. What does it take for a documentary filmmaker to get distributed, to obtain financing or finishing funds? This panel will discuss the necessary steps—and what role the right idea, talent, planning, connections, and chutzpah play in the process. An absolute “be there” for documentary filmmakers, directors and producers. Read full article…


Resilience reviewed on filmthreat.com

“Resilience” moves at a slow, realistic pace, drawing viewers into the story by revealing tiny pieces of it rather than spoon-feeding the audience its plot. In other words, it’s a sure-fire disaster for those raised on MTV. Those who don’t suffer from self-induced ADD should prepare themselves for a movie that actually cares about its characters and story, yet doesn’t let anyone off the hook. Read full article…

Juvies – Mark Wahlberg helps juvenile offenders – USA Today

Mark Wahlberg can tell you in detail about the hardships juvenile offenders suffer in adult prison – many of which have serious health consequences. But the 32 year-old actor’s knowledge wasn’t gained from preparing for a new film role. Wahlberg was prosecuted as an adult and incarcerated when he was 16 years old. “My incarceration had a huge effect on me and it still does – from my dreams to my every day life and the decisions I make,” says Wahlberg. “It affects everything – the people I interact with as well as the people I’ve had to disassociate my self from.” Wahlberg was able to get out of trouble and find blockbuster success in Hollywood starring in The Italian Job, Three Kings and Planet of the Apes. Now as executive producer and narrator of Juvies, a documentary about America’s failed juvenile justice system, Wahlberg is passionate about exposing the cruel hardships kids face in adult prisons. The national tour of the film kicks off in Los Angeles on Tuesday, March 16, at the Aratani/Japan America Theatre. Read full article…

Juvies – Filmmaker Puts Focus On Plight of Youth Offenders – Daily Journal

In the opening of the documentary “Juvies,” a dozen boys and girls walk single-file across a sandy yard at Central Juvenile Hall in East Los Angeles. Clad in baggy orange prisonwear, the wards, as juvenile inmates, ages 14 to 17, are called, clasp their hands behind their backs, one cupped inside the other, like invisible handcuffs. They look wistful, lost and achingly young. By the time the film is completed five years later, every one of them will be serving hard time in adult prison for their involvement in gang-related crimes. Many of them will be there for most of their lives. Read full article…

Pirates Of The Great Salt Lakes – Variety

A genial goof whose comic invention stretches a bit thin over feature length, E.R. Nelson’s “Pirates of the Great Salt Lake” sets overgrown adolescent Utah suburbanites on a less-than-grand, largely delusional adventure. There is indeed booty to be had and a curse to be ended, but these wannabe pirates are very much in comedy-of-lameness, “Napoleon Dynamite” mode. Read full article…

Highly recommended film about the death of Eusebio de Haro in May 2000. The day laborer asked a rancher for water.

El Inmigrante reviewed at Cinequest Film Festival

On May 13, 2000, Eusebio de Haro, a young Mexican migrant, was shot and killed in Texas during one of his journeys north.

My Brother’s War Reviewed on Filmthreat.com

The life of a microbudget filmmaker is not an easy one. Concerns that would plague any film production such as finding actors and a useable script triple in importance seeing how these are the tools which will help overcome your film’s lack of professional polish. Given that from the start there are so many factors working against you it is generally advised that indie filmmakers stick to a topic that will be easy for them to capture on screen as to not overextend themselves with a story that would prove unfilmable using their modest means. Certainly the two genres, which would seem hardest to capture upon a minuscule budget would either be science fiction or historical drama. Keeping this in mind, the sheer perseverance of Whitney Hamilton in adapting her own novel “Firefly” into “My Brother’s War”, a civil war period piece directed by and starring herself is to be admired. While not always one hundred percent successful in transcending its low budget, Hamilton’s film exhibits an authentic feel for its material along with a solid, ever evolving story.

Press Release: Inside Iraq: The Untold Stories

In March 2003, Mike Shiley was doing what most ordinary Americans were doing—sitting on the sofa, watching the nightly news coverage of Gulf War II and wondering what was really going on in Iraq. � Shiley, an avid world traveler, was personally driven to travel to Iraq and produce a documentary film about what was happening behind the scenes. 
Although Shiley is not a journalist, he convinced local television affiliate KATU in Portland, OR, to grant him permission to cover the Oregon National Guard in Iraq. � Shiley still needed press credentials, so he went to his local Kinko’s print shop where he ingeniously made a homemade press pass. � He then cashed in airline miles and with a single contact name written on a crumpled piece of paper, crossed into Iraq—setting off on a journey that would change his life forever.

Juvies – Poetry Reading Paves The Way For Film’s Journey Into Dreams, Misery Of Teens Tried As Adults – San Francisco Chronicle

No age limit at CELLspace gallery, so a 16-year-old is welcome.

And there is a movie.” What kind of movie? She smiles. “I’m not sure.” The documentary in question is “Juvies,” a grim look at what happens to teenage offenders when they are sucked into the adult prison system.
