'Electric Faces' comes to Defy Film Festival 2016
Electric Faces is to screen at this year's Defy Film Festival in Nashville.
Defy Festival organisers said "Defy is focused on great work. Work made outside of the system. Work that had to defy all conventions to be made. Filmmakers that defy expectations. We are searching for artists that broke the mold, went beyond formulas, stepped outside of the frame, artists who took the traditions by the shoulders and shook out the dust".
Personally, I'm delighted to see Festivals across the globe embracing Electric Faces. The film's performance continues to surpass all expectations and I look forward to attending as many screenings as I can.
Electric Faces tells the story of a young crook planning the perfect robbery in Future Glasgow. Euan Bennet leads the cast alongside John Gaffney, George McWilliam, Calum MacAskill and June Hazel.
Chris Quick, the co founder of The Glasgow Filmmakers Alliance, is producing with Darren Eggenschwiler on board as Director of Photography. Omar Aborida masters the sound with David McKeitch also providing sound recording. Daniel McLearnon provides the score. The film features props by Thom Wall (Sorenzo Props) and make up by Harley Moore. Electric Faces is directed by Johnny Herbin.
Electric Faces received a BAFTA nomination for a New Talent Writer award and won 'Best Short' at the UK Screen One International Film Awards. INFLUX Magazine awarded Electric Faces "Best Short" of 2015 at INFLUXPalooza.
