The Film Scenes in My Head

@ VOL 3 ON NOV 06, 2014

Paul Hutchinson, film lover and founder of Bedford Film Festival takes us on a journey through the film scenes in his head. From the classics to the most recent, films are more than stories to show and tell, but to express one's emotions to one or hundred people.  And through the movie pictures are how people can be touched and understand the story teller from behind the camera.

@ VOL 13 ON NOV 11, 2014

Three years ago my brothers and I got together to work on our first short film together; It was for the 48 Hour Film Festival in Asheville. If you're not sure how the 48 Hour Film Festival works, you essentially show up on a Friday night, draw a genre out of a hat, are given a character, prop and line of dialogue and then have 48 hours to make and turn in the film. It's a stressful but very fun way to spend the weekend. Our film that year, MALK, went on to win the Audience Choice Award as well as best use of genre, Mockumentary. 

It was the story of group of guys who in an effort to feel a stronger bond with their children, began lactating. They formed the Male Lactation Koalition, or Malk for short.

The film was a hit and we still get great comments on it to this day. Since then we've gone on to win the Audience Choice award for the past two years with two separate films however the soft spot in our heart has always been for our first film together.

We then figured why do we only work together once a year for a weekend? Let's do something bigger.

This presentation would be about the start of our journey to turn our off-the-wall short film into a feature: MALK the movie. By far our most ambitious project yet, it would be a followup feature mockumentary that will tell the "where are they now" story of 5 guys who have turned their local lactation group into a worldwide movement. It will all be shot locally around Knoxville, Asheville and Bristol and will be a great way to gather our friends, family as well as every new crew connection we've made through the past few years. Just three brothers trying to make a movie while still trying to live our everyday lives.
