Festivals!

Wow! Hey! 

This blog needs to be updated! Normally, I keep updates to the Facebook page (facebook.com/ChristopherDarlingMovie), but, YOU, the World Wide Web, need these updates too! 

So far, this movie has been accepted to FOUR film festivals. Many more have been submitted to, and we wait to hear back from the remaining fests. The festivals are: 

2016 Boise Film Festival (Premiere)

2016 Milwaukee Film Festival 

2016 Great Lakes International Film Festival 

2017 Mespies (March 24th! Save the date!)

We are very excited for our upcoming screening in Minneapolis at the inaugural Mespies, and for any other upcoming screenings! 

Stay tuned on the Facebook page and right here on this here blog! 

Finished! And just getting started.

This movie is now officially completed and in the festival submission stage!

I suppose I should introduce myself first.

My name is Martin Kaszubowski, my friends call me Marty, you can call me whatever you'd like though. Not Ishmael. Fun jokes. Anyway, “Christopher Darling” is my first feature film that I co-wrote/co-directed/co-produced with my artistic partner Scott Cary. And, as mentioned above, we just completed post production on the film exactly one year to the day of completing our first stretch of main production on the film.

As I completed the visual and sound edit of the film over the last few weeks, it hit me. The weeks of Scott and I driving around in my car, pitching the idea of the film back and forth. The long nights with Kevin Leach, our DP, plotting out the style and look of the film. The production of the film itself with its many challenges, disappointments, pitfalls, and successes. Its...been an emotional few weeks of editing over here.

BUT, a rejoice-full few weeks also. The amount of support this film has received from people in the Milwaukee film community (and just community itself) has been incredible. AND the cast and crew of this film is incredible. I can't believe I've gone three paragraphs without mentioning the dynamo that is John Glowacki! A man who took a character that could have been distant and unrealistic and made him relatable. Along with the efforts of Carol Brandt, Becky Cofta, Moira Tracey, Meredith Johnston, Avery King, Zach McLain, John Griffin, Kelly Danen, and the rest of the cast and crew, we were able to bring to life this movie.

Stay tuned for more of my rambling thoughts and more movie related news AND...the poster...?

Sincerely,

Marty
