Hello there guys,
yes we have tried every single broadcaster.
We actually where quite surprised that SyFy didn't consider it as that was our target audienced. Unfortunately they definitely do not accept unsolicited material and casting the wider and bigger net has proved to be much more difficult than what we planned. Stage32 is definitely a good idea and we'll give it a ty, thanks!
Regarding length I hear you Kevin but actually the mean obstacle we've found in terms of festivals is the fact that is not a self-standing product and it's a pilot.
I think the main struggle lies between recognition of the production itself and recognition as filmmaker (read: interest in future/alternative projects).
I suppose that although festivals have their agenda and reasons it's frustrating having a quality product and not managing to get it in fron of people as audience.
Really nice little work there.
Was it a personal project?
As a personal suggestion to make the interview look a bit more interesting (I thought it was maybe a little too close) it might have been worth shooting with two camera setups in order to be able to cut in between two different sizes.
Editing wise: I understand that you wanted to reach a sort of calm/contemplative feel for the piece but (and this is just my humble opinion) maybe it's a tiny bit too calm and contemplative.
Since the photographer already has quite a soft spoken voice and the edit tends to linger on shots maybe you could try with a slightly more lively/pacey music to see what kind of effect it creates.
I think it's a nice little film overall though, so well done!
