CEBA News: Shootout Film Screenings Taking Place at Crescent Moon on Saturday, March 15, at 5:00 PM

Shootout Film Screenings Taking Place at Crescent Moon on Saturday, March 15, at 5:00 PM
The 4th annual “Little Hollywood Shootout,” quick turnaround film challenge submissions will be premiered at a free community screening on Saturday, March 15, 2014 at the Crescent Moon Theater in Kanab, starting at 5:00 PM. The screenings precede a live music performance by the band “Mesozoic” starting at 6:30 pm.

The shootout is a guerrilla filming competition that started in March, where requirements and assignments were revealed to the filmmakers at the beginning of the challenge. Teams were required to utilize at least two locations offered out of a total of several location options to make a five minute film. Location possibilities included Little Hollywood Movie Museum, Mt Carmel Junction, Parry Lodge, and the Kanab Welcome Signs.
“The community screening caps off an intense production schedule for the teams of filmmakers and we are excited to watch their films,” said Kelly Stowell, Executive Director for the Center for Education, Business, and the Arts (CEBA), the event’s primary organizer. “This is part of a larger effort to create a culture of film making in the Kane County area and this is a great opportunity for filmmakers to sharpen skills and display talents.”
The Little Hollywood Education Series continues on Friday, March 14, with programs at the Kanab City Library starting at 3:00 pm with Kelly Stowell presenting about filmmaking in Kane County. At 4:00 pm, Roger Blomquist, PhD, will make a presentation about “Creating Historical Documentaries,” and following Roger, Digital Media professor Robert Trim, from Utah Valley University, will present the final seminar of the day about “Scene Blocking.” Robert Trim will start the education series on Saturday, March 15, at 1:00 pm with a presentation called “Six Mistakes of Beginners“ at the Kanab Library. At 2:00 pm on Saturday, Warren Workman of Film Buzz TV, will present “Creating a BUZZ through social media.” At 3:00 pm, Arrowstorm Entertainment will make a presentation called “Creating epic films in Utah,” and at 4:00 pm, a special screening of America’s First All Women Town Council Documentary will premiere before festivities move to Crescent Moon for the shootout screenings starting at 5:00 pm and Mesozoic concert at 6:30 pm.
"We have some great seminars planned with experts in the industry and provide an incredible opportunity for anyone looking to learn and get better at making films” said Nathan Riddle, local filmmaker and organizer of the Little Hollywood Education Series. Riddle also said, “the screenings and concert at Crescent Moon is the culminating event capping off an amazing week of film activities in Utah’s Little Hollywood and we are especially excited to celebrate the event with a concert by Mesozoic.“
Mesozoic is guitarist/vocalist Alan Titus, bassist/background vocalist Kim Titus, drummer/percussionist Mark Fullerton, and violinist extraordinaire, Linda DeLuca. Although the Titus duo is homegrown in Kanab, Linda, a Julliard graduate, and Mark, former drummer for the prog metal band Mind Over Four both bring years of professional recording and international touring experience to the group. Hailing from Kanab they pay tribute to the full-tilt guitar-heavy classic rock of their youth and cover songs from bands such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Kansas, The Eagles, Kansas, Rush, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the Beatles. If you’re a classic rocker it is sure some of your favorites will be in the mix.
The shootout is sponsored by ProAM USA, Digital Theory production music and IAP Films, CEBA, Kane County Office of Tourism, Kane County Film Commission, Kane County Economic Development, Kanab City, Dixie State University, Parry Lodge, Utah Office of Tourism, Utah Film Commission, the Little Hollywood Movie Museum, and the Crescent Moon Theater.

After premiering the shootout films, screening attendees will have the chance to vote for their favorite film and audience choice award will be given out on Saturday, at the Crescent Moon Theater. Community members and shootout participants are strongly encouraged to attend. The Crescent Moon Theater is located at 150 S 100 E, Kanab, UT 84741.
