An underappreciated gem. The first time he visits her apartment is one of my favorite scenes. The directing and camera have such freedom that I can only imagine comes from experience.

Something new…

Glowing review of Hello Sorry Whatever

Marc Maximov in his review of the Carrboro film festival:

The three filmmakers who won Indy Arts Awards this year, Nic Beery, Ajit Anthony Prem and Todd Tinkham, made a strong showing, with five films between them. Particularly impressive was Prem’s HELLO, SORRY, WHATEVER, a Cliffs Notes romantic tragedy built around snatches of dialogue consisting almost exclusively of the words in the title. Amory Casto, an actress from Wilmington who’s since moved to Austin, gives a deeper performance than one can reasonably expect from a short in any festival. Coupled with an impressive turn by her co-lead, Dan Kelly, the film reveals Prem’s deft hand with creating dramatic situations, and with spotting and harnessing acting talent.

Wow! I love the Cliff Notes description of the film.

Premieres at Carrboro Film Festival

I have two films premiering at the 2009 Carrboro Film Festival. I’m no longer a part of the committee but I was commissioned to the do the festival intro once again.

My Films:

  • Hello Sorry Whatever is a short narrative about a love story said with three little words. It will play in the second block which starts at 2:45 and ends at about 4:15.
  • A Walkthru with Kathleen Connally is a short documentary about a landscape photographer and her work. It will play in the first block with starts at 1:30 and ends at about 2:30.

The festival has received quite a lot of press:

A short doc I completed recently.

Al Boyle in his write up for The Examiner sheds some light on the origins of the film.

I am so disappointed with Scorsese with signing the pro-Polanski petition. Urgh!
