This particular interview is with Nan Slocum and Edmund Messina. This is one of many in a series of interviews at the 2011 Indie Gathering. It is an annual international event usually held at the Westlake Holiday Inn in the greater Cleveland, Ohio area. This was the event’s fifteenth year.
Their film, Lily’s Mom, (alos at IMDb), placed fourth in the feature length drama category. Nan Slocum is the production manager for the film and Mr.Messina is the film’s writer, director and producer. This was Mesina’s first attempt at a full length film. The film is an IVT Production. (Although we focused on the film, one should check out the new tech they are using at this company. Interactive movies are very near with something called FloBase Technology.) Listen in as this pair shares their years of experience and knowledge.
Thsi annual event, The Indie Gathering, is a must attend for anyone in the independent film industry. Whether you score movies, act, edit, direct, do make-up, costume or special effects, this is an event that you should mark on your calendar each and every year. The event features many, many screenings in three simultaneously running screening rooms, many seminars and demonstrations for all who attend and contests for those who enter.
