Tribeca 2015 Interview-Diane Bell Talks Bleeding Heart (Exclusive)

The physical and emotional glamorization of women who willingly sacrifice their own happiness and self-worth, just so that they can satisfy the men in their lives, is a harrowing theme that appears far too often in many of Hollywood’s studio and independent films.

The message of understanding essential information about yourself, including your character and your vision of your future, based on the things that have previously happened to you, is powerfully showcased in first-time feature film writer and director Pamela  [ Read More ]

Tribeca 2015 Interview Andrew Jenks Talks DreamKiller (Exclusive)

Relating to, and emphasizing with, a person who has been convicted of murder aren’t feelings many people can truly understand. But when that person has wrongfully been accused of such a heinous crime, and was unjustly sent to prison for almost a decade, just so prosecutors can garner and maintain a conviction on the highly publicized case, it’s understandable that people can emotionally identify with them.
