We had an absolute blast in Oslo, Norway last week at the Skeive Filmer Film Festival. It was so great to be able share the film with a new audience. Thanks so much to festival director, Bard Ydén, and everyone at the festival for their warm and generous hospitality. There’s a great write up on our Q&A on the festival’s blog here. We also celebrated Frankie’s birthday while we were there!
On the way home, Mark and Wade stopped off in Chicago for the Reeling Film Festival where Mark reunited with some old friends. Huge thanks to Programming Director, Alexandra Ensign, and everyone in Chi-town for the warm welcome.
On the eve of their Outfest premier, Dennis sits down with the team behind the new film “Tiger Orange;” director & cowriter Wade Gasque, co-writer/actor Mark Strano and actor Frankie Valenti (aka porn star Johnny Hazzard) making his dramatic feature debut. The film is about two estranged brothers in a smalltown in Central California who have very different ways of being gay. Topics include: fitting in vs. standing out, zip-lining without a harness and Barbie fashions.
Last weekend we did some pickup shots. A beautiful hike! Editing is coming along great. Submitting to some film festivals with a rough cut as early as November! Hope to have a final cut by the end of the year.
