Festival download: 2010 NW Projections

Update from NW Projections 2010

Producer Jason Hagen and Executive Producer Jason McCue were able to attend the 2010 NW Projections Film Festival's second day April 18th. They attended the Narrative shorts program at noon and were very impressed with the screening of BLACK. Both picture and sound were fantastic. The screening room held about 50-60 people at capacity, and about 15-20 people attended the program. Not a bad turn out overall. Prior to the screening, the Jasons were greeted by an old friend Elijah Tiegs who used to live in Los Angeles with Jason Hagen. Elijah was the production designer of The Merciful Death of Jonas Blake and now resides in the Seattle area.

All of the work that was screened was from WA or the surrounding Pacific Northwest. BLACK was filmed in Oregon, and thus qualified. One of the works that really stood out in the program was by Scott Ballard titled Last Night, Long Ago, a narrative about a elderly woman having to come to the decision to save or let go certain memories. Very well made.

Overall we look forward to attending another NW Projections and hope to screen there in the future. Festival Director Wilson Large is doing great things with the festival; showing unseen cinema and bringing industry professionals to the small town of Bellingham to discuss the industry and their particular professions.

We hope to see you all at another NW Projections!
