Networking and a Movie

With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, we at 19th & Wilson wanted to thank everyone who came out to support us at our Networking and a Movie event. Check out some picture here. It was great to meet everyone and it’s especially exciting to see that there are so many filmmakers in different capacities in the Metro DC region. We hope that everyone had a great time and were able to network with contacts like Paul Sherno and Matt Simpson from Local Point TV, along with President of the Asian Pacific American film festival, Christian Oh. Please be sure to check our website for more information on how you can become involved with independent film.

As a result of the event, Paul Sherno and 19W’s Aaron Goodmiller are in talks to bring TechFellas and The Department to Local Point TV, so please be sure to check for updates on Local Point (www.localpointtv.com). Local Point is on HD air channel 7-3, Comcast channel 205, and Verizon FiOS channel 867.

The Love Story of Henry & Carol production

That’s a mouthful for a title. The Love Story of Henry and Carol (HC for short), is a short film written and directed by 19w’s Eric Espejo, and is his fifth short film. With 2 of the past 3 films being spoofs, the 19W team wanted to get back to telling original stories and as such, this romantic horror is definitely a step in that direction.

Henry and Carol takes us on a journey of the heart. Carol is a loving wife who likes to play games, scaring her husband for fun. When her shenanigans result in dire consequences, she has to confront a life without Henry—but she may just find that loneliness doesn’t always mean you’re alone.

The auditions were held in October and actors Chris Kennedy and Kendra North were cast as Henry and Carol, respectively. HC was shot in one day and one long all-nighter, at a model home provided by Van Metre Homes in Stone Ridge VA. To say the cast and crew worked hard would be an understatement, but they are proud of what they’ve accomplished and are excited to see HC on the screen.
