EQF submits film to Filmstro One Minute Film Contest

Brian C. Taylor and Bowen O'Brien (the guys that brought you Adulthood) have teamed up again to create a one minute film contest entry entitled Fear & Love: Everything you need to know in under a minute.

Fear & Love is a metaphorical tale of a young couple coming to terms with their emotions about not being able to have a baby. Everything in this film represents something and there's information hidden everywhere.

Who or what is the creature?
Why does it share it's red eye?
What is with the man's hair, or the woman's clothes?
Why does the wood pile appear in three different states?
Where does their child come from?

Answer these questions and glean Everything you need to know in under a minute.

Good luck to the cast and crew in this contest...

Watch here. Share freely. https://youtu.be/LmtzYIrGgcM

Beneath the Painted Surface on schedule for completion

The rough cut has been viewed by our test audience and surveys have been completed.
The results of those surveys have been translated into changes to the film, for the better.

We haven't yet heard about our film festival submission of the rough cut, remaining "In Consideration." We missed our opportunity to submit to Cannes, which we are sad about, but the film will be finished in time to submit to our next festival, deadline December.

It's almost done already.

Adulthood wins big at Horrorfest X

Congratulations to Cast and Crew! Adulthood has won Best Picture and Best Story awards at Horrorfest X presented by the Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmaking in Kelowna BC.

A panel of industry professionals chose our little film over some other excellent short films.

The Horrorfest audience seemed very surprised when writer and producer I announced that Adulthood was made by a fourteen year-old Bowen O'Brien. Bowen was able to give an acceptance speech as I used Duo, a videophone app, so that Bowen could witness the screening at the 19+ event. I held the microphone up to my phone, which I pointed at the audience, they could see Bowen, Bowen could see them (I think.)

Adulthood works as a picture because of the hard work that our cast and crew put into it.
Thank you so much.

And thanks to the Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmakers as well as the other sponsors of Horrorfest. OSIF and EQF have had a long and beautiful friendship. 

I will be publishing more about the story of the making of Adulthood in forthcoming blogs.
We have entered the film into three more film festivals: Fantasia FF (Canada's premiere horror and sci-fi fest.) The Seattle International FF and Hollyshorts, a California fest specializing in shorts.

Update: Adulthood was shown at the Towne Theatre on monday night, previous to the Okanagan Screen Arts presentation. Bowen was able to attend and was thrilled to see his film on the very big screen.  It is my understanding that there's an opportunity to screen the film again in the future.

Further to this, Bowen and Brian are to be interviewed by the Morning Star newspaper.
