Greenville History Museum and Columbia’s Nickelodeon Theater


Nickelodeon Theatre 

The South Carolina Film Commission will screen five of the films produced
through the first two years of their Production Grant program on November 11
in Columbia, SC, at the Nickelodeon Theater, and November 17 in Greenville
at the Upcountry History Museum.

Fresh off successful runs on the international film festival circuit, this
will be the first chance to see all of these short films as one collection.
The screenings are free and open to the public.

"These films really show the filmmaking talent that is in South Carolina,
and the type of enriching, dynamic stories our state holds," said Tom Clark
with the Film Commission.  "And what better audience to appreciate these
stories then South Carolinians themselves."

According to Clark, the program - titled South Carolina Stories -  is made
up of films that tell their tales with distinctive style and creativity, and
includes renowned acting talent such as Patty Duke, Mackenzie Astin, and
Keir O'Donnell (Wedding Crashers, The Runaways).  

The short films include Civil, a breathtaking Civil War story with a twist;
Cannon Street Boys, the true story of the 1955 Cannon Street YMCA Little
League team in Charleston; Appalachian Dreams, an animation/live-action
hybrid based on the traditional crafts and music of southern Appalachia;
Song of Pumpkin Brown, a narrative account of the Jenkins Orphanage's
celebrated music program and its influence on jazz; and a segment from the
feature-film The Four Children of Tander Welch, the first-time teaming of
actress Patty Duke and her son Mackenzie Astin.

All films were produced through the Film Commission's Production Grant
program, the first-ever of its type in the nation.

The screenings will include question and answer sessions with the
filmmakers.  Following are details for each program:


Nickelodeon Theater
937 Main Street
Columbia, SC  29201
Starts at 8 pm

Upcountry History Museum
540 Buncombe Street
Greenville, SC, 29601  
Starts at 7 pm

Appy gets into the Virginia Film Fest.

I love Charlottesville as it is the home to UVA and Jefferson’s Monticello.  This a great cultural hub of the South and I’m honored to have my film play at a great event.

Here’s a sketch I did on a visit last year…

Dixie Film Fest

Athens is a great college town and UGA is a great university with lively cultural events so I’m real pleased to be part of the Dixie Film Fest.  My goal with Appy Dreams was to promote the culture of clogging and this is one more gem.  I hope there’s a big crowd and perhaps I’ll get to meet some great local film makers.
