Fourplay: San Francisco | Review - aGLIFF 2010 (Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival)

5 September 2010 11:16 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Director: Kyle Henry Writer: Carlos Trevino Staring: Paul Soileau, Cyndi Williams, Gary Chason Aliya (Paul Soileau), a stunningly styled transvestite prostitute, is hired by Anne (Cyndi Williams) for her dying husband, Tom (Gary Chason). Tom is bedridden and permanently attached to a respirator, he can only communicate via blinking his eyes (one for “no,” two for “yes”) and he only has feeling in his extremities. Lucky for Tom, he can feel his toes! Aliya sure can work wonders with her clients’ toes! Essentially a two-character one-act play, Soileau’s (whom some might know as Christeene or Rebecca Havemeyer) onscreen chemistry with Chason is pitch perfect. Soileau plays Aliya with tenderness and delicacy; occasionally she reveals subtle glimpses of apprehension and fear while navigating her client, obviously not wanting to cause any damage to his fragile being. Directed by Kyle Henry (Room), written by Carlos Trevino and shot by Pj Ravel, »

Tfpf Recipients Provide a Sneak Preview of Austin Film

30 August 2010 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

The Texas Filmmakers Production Fund (Tfpf) recipients for 2010 have just been announced, and without even looking anything up, I can spot a number of Austin filmmakers among the lucky winners this year. Twenty-four projects received a total of $104,000 in cash, film stock and services. Selected filmmakers and projects are from all over the state of Texas, but it looks like more than half have ties to Austin this year.

One great benefit about the Tfpf announcement for Austin film lovers is that it's a sneak peek into the projects that some local filmmakers have been working on. Hopefully we'll see some of the following movies in 2011 or beyond ... although one is actually screening in Austin tonight, and another will screen here (at least in part) within the month.

The largest single grant, $9,000, went to Austin artist and photographer Patrick Xavier Bresnan (Otis Ike) for post-production costs on Vietnam Appreciation Day, »

Kyle Henry's 'Tampa' Just Needs a Cast

18 January 2010 6:00 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Local filmmaker Kyle Henry, whose feature Room played Cannes in 2005, is preparing to shoot a short film called Tampa, the third in a series of four planned shorts called Fourplay. Actor/writer Carlos Trevino has written the script, and the director of photography will be Pj Raval (Trouble the Water, Trinidad).

Now all Tampa needs is a cast, and Vicky Boone is working on that -- an Austin casting director who made a very funny short film herself in 2005, Attack of the Bride Monster (which Raval also Dp'd). A message posted to the Austin Film Casting mailing list details the roles the production needs to fill. I've reposted all the info after the jump. The deadline for sending your picture and resume to Boone is today (Jan. 18), so if you think you're perfect for one of these characters, get cracking.
