Documentary, Festivals and a Book Trailer
The summer of 2013 will go down as the most diverse in the history of BeeryMedia.com. We had the distinct pleasure of producing many productions for amazing folks and their companies. Let’s get right to it!
Nic Beery was honored to once again teach documentary film making for Duke University and their Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. Joined by film maker Michael Salerno, The School of Doc is a five week summer program that teaches High School students everything about how to produce a documentary. This is all at no cost to the students or their families. Wonderful program. This year the SoDoc produced a short doc on food trucks called Food on Four Wheels.
Beery Films was selected to screen six of their award winning short films before every outdoor feature film screening in Chapel Hill, NC this summer. Titled Locally Grown, this rooftop film series was a fun way to spend evenings with family and friends, and see locally produced fare to boot.
Lyn Fairchild Hawks, author of the popular Young Adult novel, How Wendy Redbird Dancing Survived the Dark Ages of Nought, hired Beery Media, LLC to produce a Book Trailer for her. The talent and passion was evident during the shoot. The trailer will be unveiled at a book signing and online in November, 2013.
Good news came in the form of acceptance to a couple film festivals. Our newer short film offerings will be screening in Raleigh, NC (another outdoor event!) at FilmSPARK on September 14th, and at the Knoxville Film Festival on September 21st and 22nd.
Our on-going documentary project on renown painter Jim Howle continues. In August we drove to Chicago and spent a few days filming Jim as he visited his old buddy Ted Goodman. Ted is bed ridden and this visit is a pivotal moment in the film. Very powerful. More details on this film as it continues production. It is going to be a powerful story.
Many more productions, from commercials to associations to musical filming, but that’s all to report for now. We hope your summer was wonderful and fall brings cooler weather and much more creativity and art in your life.
