Award Winning!

Carrots actor Tatiana Marie - Best Actor @ The Sigmund Freud Film Festival

This film project was incredible fun. We ran the production as a CONTEST -- the first of its kind. Actors filmed themselves (during COVID19 quarantine) and submitted there footage. Over 180 actors entered the contest. We had a hard time judging from the many submissions, and (after delays related to COVID19, cranky computers, lack of funds, and everything else that made 2020 generally suck) eventually 3 winners were selected. 

CONGRATULATIONS to:

Janice Lee Horn for the role of "Kim Vinneti"

Tatiana Marie for the role of "Max Whittles"

Nautic Von Horn for the role of "Dr. Jones"

Oh, boy. Running a contest of this sort is exhausting. I sent the script to everyone interested, asked that they self-tape themselves doing one (or more) of the roles, coordinated all of the email responses (hundreds of emails!), gave instructions on how to self-tape, collected footage, edited the film, and then put together my first ever "making of" film to document this wild ride.

As I said was likely all along, I played the doctor. Only one other actor (shout out to Werner Jauch!) was brave enough to attempt the role, but he was clearly at a disadvantage not being able to see the other contestant's work and adapt as necessary. I ended up changing the doctor's scripted lines to fit the best footage we received for Kim and Max. For example, during the footage for Kim the actor's cell phone rang; we needed to either work that into the script or disqualify her entry. 

Getting so much interest from actors around the world (London and Paris, for example) was exhilarating. Of course, I saved all the email addresses so that I can contact these actors directly for the next contest! Yes. I definitely want to do another project similar to this again!


Love ya!
