Road Trip: Cape Fear International Film Festival

May 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

Very cool news. The All Aces Media team is heading to Wilmington, NC, this weekend to speak at The Cape Fear International Film Festival, about the importance of short films. If you want to know how we feel about short films then hopefully we will see you there. If not, you will have to wait because we are bashing our heads together to come up with something important to say to the audience.


I’ve had some experience of public speaking and to be quite honest I feel very comfortable doing it, until someone asks me a question and I have no idea how to answer it. I’m not savvy like the Bush administration when it comes to acknowledging the fact I don’t know what I’m talking about. I simply swallow some humility and express that the question was stupid and I have no time for stupid questions. I wish, I take it on the chin and simply say, “Good question… I’ll look into that and throw it on my blog.”

Here is something interesting about our trip… none of our work is in the festival, so we feel kinda awkward stepping in. I think we are going to focus on the fact that anyone can shoot a film and get your name recognized when you shoot a short. For instance… Blake is now being hunted by bands to shoot music videos because of his tireless work on Series DVD. Micah got recognized by top notch acting talent because he went out and shot some test footage to showcase the feel and look of the film, “Dog’s of Chinatown.” I did a free promotional DVD for Ronnie Baker Brooks (favorite blues artist) and now he wants me to shoot his next DVD.

It’s all about getting in front of the people you want to work with and wow them. Show them your different than the thousands of filmmakers popping up like weeds. But most importantly, be professional and go above and beyond anyones expectations… even your own.

OK now I’m full of myself and ready for the audience. Let the show begin.
