The latest in our ongoing series of video dispatches it up and it features some great interviews with visiting and local filmmakers as they taken in the fun (if a little windy) Opening Night Party. Watch our deadCENTER video crew talking to people on the roof of the Oklahoma City Museum of Art last night below.
That’s right, folks, we have FREE limos provided by King’s Limousine that will transport you in super-style between all our screening venues. They’ll be running the same route between the venues all weekend, so no matter what screening you’re at and what venue you need to get to, there will be someone along to get you where you need to go.
We’ll be bringing you exclusive video throughout the festival and below is our first installment – an interview with the Director and Producer of Talihina Sky. Stephen Mitchell and Casey McGrath talked with our own Katie Kurtz about the great film that seemingly half of OKC showed up for last night. Enjoy.
We’re not sure yet how many people showed up, but are pretty confident it was more than last year. But it really wasn’t the numbers that bowled us over – it was the energy the audience had. You guys rock.
So from all the staff – thanks to all you audience members and our volunteers for coming out and making our first night awesome. Stick around for the next few days – we’ve got a lot planned. You can plan the rest of your festival here.
UPDATE: George Lang has a good write-up on last night’s festivities here.
In the run up to this year’s festival, we’ve had some great press around the country from all sorts of cool publications and sources. But one of the most fun things we’ve been featured in are the comic-strip style ads for BodyTrends, “The Housewives of the 405.” Created by friend of the festival Brian Winkeler, the story has been following one of the Housewives, Rebecca, as she prepares for her film’s debut at deadCENTER. Despite being a completely fictional film, we really want to see “Fatal Femme.”
deadCENTER Executive Director Lance McDaniel talked to Angi Bruss of NewsOK.com and gave the full rundown of all the awesomness that is deadCENTER this year. If you want to explain what this year’s festival is all about, share this video:
