Traverse City Film Festival 2013

Traverse City Film Festival 2013.

This is the second year I have had the opportunity to be part of the team documenting this year’s Traverse City film festival. My experience last year was so positive that I was quite happy to hear I was able to return.

Life imitates Art…..

Cannes JewelryThe Cannes Film Festival, last night, was the scene of a crime truly worthy of it’s own screenplay. Guardian UK, reported that over One-million dollars worth of jewelry, designed by Chopard was stolen.

The jewelry was to be worn by celebrities to, get this, the premiere of  Sofia Coppola’s film
“The Bling Ring. “The police report states that the jewels had been in a security box, located in the hotel room of one Chopard’s employees. One, we assume was sent to assure the expensive items were handed-out to, and then returned from, the celebrities.
French police say the security box containing several pieces from the Swiss luxury jeweler’s collection, was smashed and hauled out of the room the employees.

Directed by Lee Kirk
Story by Lee Kirk & Jenna Fischer* (uncredited)
Screenplay by Lee Kirk

Cast: Jenna Fisher: Janice, Chris Messina: Tim Topher Grace: Doug Malin Akerman: Jill Rich Sommer: Brian
Lucy Punch: Pauline Sarab Kamoo: Sonia Bob Odenkirk: Mark

This is a fantastically quirky comedy. The movie, which was shot entirely in 19 days in Detroit MI for under a million dollars, was written by Lee Kirk after Jenna Fischer hired him to write a romantic comedy for her to star in. However, thanks to Fischer’s great decision to hire Kirk, for whom she would later marry, they ended up with a very high quality product, both in writing and as a film overall.
