It’s going to be a busy fall for all things drinky and stormy! Our short film The Hit is playing at the Kapow Intergalactic Festival in Los Angeles at the end of September and at the 401 Film Festival in Rhode Island, which runs October 13-14. Carl is resting up for the occasion.
Drinkstorm has also released it’s first documentary! Once Around Is Never Enough is the story of the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum in North Tonawanda, NY. So far, the film has won Best Short Documentary at the Long Beach International Film Festival, Best Documentary at the WNY Fame Festival, and is heading to the Coney Island Film Festival this weekend! We’ll have a page up for it soon, as well as DVDs available for sale on this site!
We’re excited to announce that our very first play Hansel & Gretel is being produced by Lexington Montessori School students on May 18. This play was originally produced by the Fractured Fairytales festival for Theatre@First several years ago, and we’re thrilled that the young’uns want to put it on! Here’s a video of the original performance.
Drinkstorm’s first short film The Hit just won a Bronze Award in the Mindfield-Albuquerque Film Festival! This is the review we got from the festival:
I reviewed The Hit along with the panel and quite enjoyed it. Jenn and Charlie did a great job at writing and directing this film. I love the quirkiness of it; it kept us laughing. The cast was believable and true to their characters. The cinematography fit the genre perfectly along with the editing. The score matched the genre wonderfully.
Also, We won two awards in the Snowdance Film Awards! Our lead actor Frederick Fairbanks won Best Actor, and the film won runner-up for Best Short!
The Hit has also recently been accepted to the Shepperton Screenwriting Festival. More news on that festival coming soon!
