Did you know I Executive Produced this years Best Actor & Critic Prize Winning Film at the world's oldest film festival? Martin Donovan's COLLABORATOR is that film. My guess is you did not get over to the Czech Republic last month to see it. But you know what?
It will be playing around the USA this fall. Soon we should be announcing those next steps, and then the ones that follow. But if you need a fix, perhaps this will do.
I am very proud of this film. It was one of those great experiences where you get to help a friend realize their dream, and you (i.e. me) benefit from it too. I think anyone desiring ambitious cinema of quality, ideas, and humor will dig it. I hope that is you!
You can watch the press conference right here. I think it demonstrates well what a producer does at such a press conference. Producers don't get asked questions -- but it doesn't mean you can't answer them. A Producer still has to make sure that the right messages get out there.
And if you have a moment, please check out COLLABORATOR's Facebook page. I know most of you have not yet seen it, but if you "like" it, you will be privy to early news on where it is screening and other such stuff.
And if you aren't already, you can follow our writer, director and star, Martin Donovan on Twitter @breakneckfilms.
