- Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Hammer to Nail



Pressin' on by Chris Holmes

Lots of new developments in recent months, including our first sold-out show (at the Cucalorus Film Festival), a seriously boss review from Hammer to Nail, some airtime on NPR, posters, trailers,  screenings out the yin-yang and a most unfortunate incident at a Winston-Salem carwash.  Any insights or war stories you wish to share relating to small claims court are welcome and encouraged.  We've also added a PRESS page to the site where some worthwhile reviews of the film and associated content can be found--including the aforementioned Hammer to Nail piece written by Christopher Llewellyn Reed.  Click here to give it a look-see!


Push it real good by Chris Holmes

The festival beat goes on as spring cascades into a full-on torrential summer.  Good news to report on that front from this past weekend in fact, as Lost Colony took home the award for Best Feature Film at the inaugural PUSH! Film Festival in historic Bristol TN/VA!  Many thanks to my old grad school pal Rusty Sheridan for helping to organize such an outstanding and singular event, particularly impressive given that there was no pre-existing blueprint in place.

Keeping fingers crossed for at least a handful of additional screenings as the summer plays out, and have some other exciting developments taking shape--predominantly related to the film's Indiegogo campaign contributors and the bounty they have yet to reap for their efforts.  Rest assured I will be in touch.  Until then, keep checking back for updated screening info and other random detritus from the road.

Premiere set for opening night at Indie Grits! by Chris Holmes

Well folks, at long last the film is receiving its final touches in post-production--many thanks in that regard to the likes of sound supervisor Jeff Seelye, editors Chris Iversen and Ian Johnson, colorist Ayumi Ashley, and sound editors Tommy Stang and Scott Ferrara.  With spring sprialing ever upward from the loam, this restless seedling of a film is finally ready to push through the topsoil and greet the living daylights out of the world.  In a little over a month it'll be doing just that, as the fine folks down at the Indie Grits Film Festival in Columbia, SC--hometown of our gallant UPM and producer Adam Tate no less--have invited Lost Colony to screen in competition as the opening night feature film on Wednesday, April 15th.  It's an exciting, up-and-coming festival in the Southeast run by some visionary individuals--Andy Smith and Seth Gadsden in particular--and one that I admire a lot, so it's a great privilege to be featured in their lineup once again (my whatsit of a short film Sapsucker played there back in 2009).

If you're interested in attending, tickets are on sale at this very moment here.  It's the first of what we hope are many, many more future opportunities to see the film on the big screen, but it'll be a special night to roll on the first public screening of the finished work after a decade and change in the making.  We'd love to see some friendly faces out there in the seats if you're interested in making the trip.  Anyway looking forward to sharing more great news and additional screening dates in the coming months, so keep checking back as the year unfurls itself for more updates. Look forward to seeing you all soon somewhere out there along the dusty trail.
