I am so proud that Lord Finn, a feature I produced and starred in has had its WORLD PREMIERE in Jakarta, Indonesia, at the Asia Pacific International Filmmaker Festival!
I lot of people have put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into the making of this film, and it’s an honor to have it finished, and audiences viewing it.
To properly tell this story you have to start back in January, 2016 at the Trail Dance Film Festival in Duncan, OK. I was fortunate enough to have 4 films I was in screening at the festival, one of which a 35 minute short film entitled “UGLY.” My girlfriend at the time was also in a film that was at the festival, so she went to support her film, and left me to support mine.
As happenstance would have it, I ended up sitting next to Al Mertens, writer of Lord Finn. He saw my performance in UGLY and asked if we could talk after the screening. That started everything. Slowly from there he and I worked closer and closer together until I was onboard not only as the lead character, but also the producer.
In November 2016 we shot Lord Finn. Since that time, we have been fighting the good fight that is post production, and are now at the finish line. Proud to share it with the world.
With that said, we hope the people of Jakarta, Indonesia will enjoy our film! And look forward to upcoming screenings as they become announced!
Until then, Vale.
