On August 14th 2014 my wife and I attending the Hollyshorts Film Festival Opening Night!  The event takes place on Hollywood Boulevard at the famous TCL Chinese Theatre.  It was very exciting.  The short film I scored last year titled “The Bath” directed by Mark Lundsten was indeed an official selection at the festival.

“The Bath” won best narrative short at the 2013 Ojai Film Festival and so we were pretty excited by the idea that we could take back something home at Hollyshorts.  But the competition was hard this year and there were so much great films.  Unfortunately we didn’t win anything this year.  But still, what an exciting event!

“The Bath” was inspired by a poem about the Alzheimer disease.  A tribute to those who have to take care and see people that they care about slowly forget entirely who they are and who are the people who loves them.

Hollyshorts is one of the top film festival for short film, a great avenue for discovering new talents.  There were a lot of talented filmmaker and one of greatest pleasure was to see that very dear friends of mine from Seattle were sponsors of the festival this year!  Ben Andrews from Evil Slave Productions was hosting a panel, sponsoring the event as well as a special screening of all of this year’s best short film from the Pacific Northwest, and “The Bath” was a part of it.  Most notable films in my opinion were “Shift Paradigm” directed by Ben Andrews himself, that was in all aspects definitely one of the best film I’ve seen coming out of Seattle.  And the Harvey Brother’s “The Arborlight” which was definitely notable. 

Lots of friends to see in person, on screen and in the credits!  A wonderful event for which I thank Daniel Sol and Theo Dumont for putting it together every year as well as organizing various seminars and workshops all year long.

See you next year!
