In the fall of 2014, I had a ridiculous idea to make a piece of art bigger and more serious than anything I had ever attempted. I would make it, but I wasn't going to keep it because it deserved a life with a beginning and an end. I asked Ian McClerin to help me document its life.
In two weeks time, Ian and I will be flying to Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah where the documentation will be premiering as a short film. It seems impossible that an idea I had while riding the 39 bus in Boston could ever be heard by so many people. I am honored and in disbelief. Ian McClerin is a driving force in this accomplishment. Without his help and endless support, Rotatio would have remained a quiet and intimate story between myself and the handful of people that experienced its physical presence. Now, the quiet and intimate story is in the Documentary Shorts Program in Slamdance which is eligible for Academy Award Nomination.
You can find the official press release on Indiewire.com and more about Slamdance and the festival schedule at showcase.slamdance.com/Film-Schedule
We have submitted the short film to several other film festivals across the country and we are awaiting their letters of acceptance or rejection.
