Traffic Opera Going to Southampton, UK

southampton.pngWe’ve been accepted into the Southampton UK film festival. Last year we went with A Perfect You which was nominated for best editing and best comedy short. It won an award for Rashieda Awan for best actress in a comedy short. We like Southampton. We had a great time there. It’s a lovely little town. And we’ll be back!

Latest CoolAthFilmth: Dust Nuggets

This pilot was shot March 3, 2018. It’s a weird little show best described as Dr. Seuss meets David Lynch. Guaranteed to confuse and entertain at the same time. Photos from the shoot below. Stay tuned for progress reports. (All photos by the amazing Fadi Acra.)

Reading Music Foundation Awards Grant to Cool Ath Filmth

rmf-logo-black-png-smallCool Ath Filmth is ecstatic to announce  Reading Music Foundation has awarded us a grant for the creation of new music for our upcoming “Traffic Opera.” The amazing Chris Heslop is the first one on board. He’ll be writing the music. Chris is a fantastic composer and we can’t wait to start work with him on this very cool project.

In addition we’re getting a healthy donation from John Friedman, local supporter of the arts in Reading and all around good guy. This boost will push us well on our way in pre-production. We hope to shoot in the summer but a lot of ducks need to be lined up first.

In the meantime a million thanks to RMF and John Friedman.
