Action on Film 2012 Official Nominee Best Editing (Short)

Action on Film 2012 Official Nominee Best Comedy Scene

I am especially humbled at being recognized for Best Editing, considering that this is a comedic film up against mainly rapid cut action fare.   I think I have a particular fart orchestra to thank for the nomination, which wouldn’t be nearly what it is without Peter Tinari’s superb sound design and composition.  If I would venture a guess as AOF has provided no further detail, I would say that sequence is also the object of our second nomination for Best Comedy Scene, which is in competition with both shorts and feature-length films.  Again big thanks to Peter whose collaboration, musical sensibility, and inner twelve-year-old boy,  helped shape the design of that scene long before a frame of it had even been shot.

Also huge thanks again to our cast and crew who donated their time and expertise in bringing this film to life.

As a reminder the film is playing the festival next week on Thursday 8/23/12 at 9:15PM.  Tickets are available online or at the door for $10.

Award results will be presented at The AOF 2012 Black Tie Dinner and Award Show on Saturday August 25, 2012.
