This screening brings together A Boy's Life by LA based Eli Benavidez and The Drought by NYC based Kevin Slack.

I'm happy to announce the screening of two great short films (yes I produced them both but I firmly believe they are amazing and you will be impressed).  This screening brings together A Boy's Life by LA based Eli Benavidez and The Drought by NYC based Kevin Slack.  These two emerging writer/directors are creatives to watch out for in the near future.  They are doing inspiring and artistic things in the world of film.  

Join us tomorrow night for the screening - Monday, August 15, 2011 at 8pm at Raleigh Studios, Chaplin Theatre.

**RSVP Here**

Attendees will also get a sneak peek at something from Hopelessly In June, Replaced and a premiere of a PSA by Raphe Wolfgang.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

Rob Gokee and Allison Vanore have set out to raise money for original series, Replaced, by Heath Vinyard, and for short film, A Boy's Life, by Eli Benavidez.  Why?  Well, why not?!  Allison is producing both projects and Rob is composing music for Replaced so it seems only fitting that we'd find some way to bring tacos into the mix to raise money for this great cause.  Here's the run-down:

The Writer/Director of "A Note to Etienne," Eli Benavidez, has developed his next short subject film, "A Boy's Life."

The Writer/Director of "A Note to Etienne," Eli Benavidez, has developed his next short subject film, "A Boy's Life."  While "A Note" is hitting festivals, Benavidez decided it's time to start pre-production on his next film.  He approached his producer for "A Note," Allison Vanore, with a script for his next venture and Vanore agreed, it's a great script and she's excited to jump in and produce another film with Benavidez.  Set to go into production in the late fall, the ball is rolling to get funds in place and begin the process yet again - this time with a young actor and a somewhat scary subject.
