Time for a short film?
We take a break from our regularly scheduled blogging on prospects in Spring Training for a movie tip.
This isn’t just any run-of-the-mill film though, and it does have a Minor League-related angle. Those who listen to the radio show, Around the Minors, might remember me having a trio of A’s Minor Leaguers on a while back (it was November 4, to be exact) who passed the time with the Stockton Ports by making a feature film called Dream Revolver (the link here will allow you to see the trailer they made).
Well, believe it or not, they edited the film down and got it entered into a film festival in Los Angeles. It’s a 55-minute short film that will be airing tonight (March 13) at 10:10 p.m. LA time in the New York Film and Video Festival (If your’e wondering, they’ve got a festival in NY as well, thus the name). If you’re in the area, go check it out (check out the schedule for ticket info). I’ll be honest with you…it’s a lot more interesting than I thought it would be. You never know, some producer sees it at this festival, decides to buy the rights to it and turn it into a real movie…and you can say you saw it before anyone else did.
If you do go and see it, report back here with a review. Thanks.
