We were happy to hear that the Secret City Film Festival in TN selected our very own “Veronica Always” as this years “Best Family Film”. This is such a nice recognition of a beautiful short film. Secret City is gaining in reputation as one of the nation’s best film festivals. We will definitely continue to make films that have strong stories and production values. Of course, everyone involved with “V. Always” made this film so special. Especially the fine acting and dancing by Fallon, Sarah and Jon.
In other festival news, “V. Always” and “Boy with the wet thumb” have been selected for this years “Seguin Film Festival” in Texas.
We are finishing post production on Anita Mills short “Where There’s Smoke” and Mark Cornell’s “Sweet Dreams for Maisie”. Both films are spectacular and VERY different. It’s a pleasure to work with such creative folks. I can’t wait to see these on the big screen.
As for BeeryMedia productions, we just finished a short “song film” titled, “Which Way?” which will premiere at the Flicker film festival, Nov. 9th at 8pm in Chapel hill at the NightLight club on Rosemary. This film uses found 8mm footage and super 8 footage I shot in NYC back in 1997. It’s also on youtube and vimeo for you to enjoy online.
Our next short, “Frame”, will go before the camera in mid-November. This one stars my own kids, Kelly and Simon, so it’s a special family event.
As for other news, BeeryMedia has been tapped to produce from soup to nuts the new video for the popular english indie band, “The Crowd Scene”. All development ideas are under wraps until the label releases it, but I can say, this will not be your mother’s music video!
See you all at the Carrboro Film Festival November 23rd.

Which Way? from nic beery on Vimeo.
This is a song film. It's the story of one woman's search for a friend and for herself. She looks many, many places, over many decades. Some of the places she looks are the Grand Canyon, Kalamazoo College, New York City and a native american reservation. The footage spans many decades from the last century.
The song was written in 1983 by Anne Rogers and recorded in 2008 by her band, "The Crowd Scene". 8mm films were shot by a Falls Church, VA family while on a U.S. vacation in the 1940's. Sold at an estate sale in 2003. NYC footage shot by the filmmaker, circa 1997. Song film produced in 2008. All together it's almost 70 years in the making...and worth the wait."
