If you’ve never seen a short film before, now is your chance. Tuesday Morning, produced by Roundtable Pictures, the independent film company co-founded by Seacoast filmmakers Lars Trodson and Mike Gillis, is a film that takes place inside the North Tower of the World Trade Center on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. The film stars Seacoast actors Whitney Smith and Teddi Kenick-Bailey. It was written by Trodson, directed by Gillis, and shot by award-winning filmmaker Jay Childs.
According the New Hampshire Film Office, free screenings will take place at the Red Door martini bar and lounge in Portsmouth, NH on Nov. 12th and Nov. 13th. Their short film, The Listeners, won the Best Short Drama award at the New Hampshire Film Expo in 2005. They are also the creative team behind A Bootful of Fish and Elevation, which debuted at the NH Film Festival in 2008. Both shows will begin at 6 p.m.
The Roundtable Pictures production team is available for commercial and industrial media work. They offer writing, producing, editing and scoring as well as web services and digital press kits. These busy boys have also extended their creative reach into advertising by submitting an entry in the “Crash the Superbowl” ad contest sponsored by Doritos. The ad, titled The Main Ingredient is a short about two guys who cook for their girlfriends with nothing but Doritos. Watch it at www.crashthesuperbowl.com and you can even vote for them beginning Jan 15th. They are also in pre-production on a feature-length documentary, expected to be completed next year.
So, enjoy a night out this week and show your support for local filmmakers, Lars Trodson and Mike Gillis online and offline.
