FILMMAKING SEMINAR: PENELOPE BUITENHUIS IN CONVERSATION ON ‘A WAKE’

May 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

Cineworks Independent Filmmakers Society hosted an informal discussion last week in the studio about the filmmaking process of A Wake led by Writer/Director Penelope Buitenhuis in conversation with fellow filmmaker Katrin Bowen (Amazon Falls). The dialogue for A Wake is entirely improvised by actors, it was made for a low budget, and shot in only ten days.  The film has garnered acclaim in the press and at festivals, including Best Feature at the Carmel Arts and Film Festival 2010, Best Film at the Female Eye Festival in 2010 and a nomination for a DGC award for directing and editing.  Showing clips from the film, Penelope discussed topics including acting, story, casting, shooting, lighting, crew, and music. It was amazing!

A Wake continues its run at 5th Avenue Cinemas until May 5th, catch it before its gone!
