Engineering Firm Post-Produces A Digital Short Film That Will Be Screened At 2006 Cannes Film Festival










San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2006

Durrenberger Engineering, Inc. used its proprietary Digital Video To Film transfer process to create the 35mm print of the short film entitled “Atenea Y Afrodita” that will be shown at “Tous Les Cinemas du Monde” program of the world-famous festival, on May 24 at 1pm.

The 2006 “Tous Les Cinema du Monde” program features the work of over 80 international producers. This is the first year that an entry from Venezuela was selected to be shown.

The short film “Atenea Y Afrodita”, that was produced by Harold Lopez Garroz in Venezuela, was filmed using digital video camera technology and editted using non-linear computer editing technology. The producer and team mastered a digital video (DV) tape, then sent the master to Durrenberger Engineering, Inc. who performed the transfer of the DV tape from the video domain to a 35mm motion picture print. This print, known as the Release Print, is capable of being projected in virtually any motion picture theater worldwide.

Durrenberger Engineering, Inc. completed the transfer at its San Diego facility and using various service firms in Burbank CA. The transfer process is as follows. Durrenberger Engineering, Inc. post-produces a 35mm negative of the short film videotape at its San Diego facility. Then the negative is sent to a motion picture film development lab in Burbank, where the film is developed, then to a sound stage facility where sound is synchorized to picture, and finally, back to the development lab which makes the final 35mm print.

Durrenberger Engineering, Inc has been producing DV To Film Transfers for over five years. The firm has transferred several feature films which have been distributed in Europe, USA and Mexico, as well as many short films that have been screened in festivals such as Ottawa International Animation Festival, etc. In addition, the firm has produced movie trailers for films such as “Word Wars” (Seventh Arts Releasing), “Stuey” (Starring Michael Imperioli) and “Unspeakable” (Starring Dennis Hopper).

The world has never seen such a celebrated extravaganza of films. Each year from the past 16 years, the festival has created a record of sorts. This year it is not too different and 200 movies are being screened at the famed film festival. The film festival is special because it promotes originality and promotes new directors who have it in them to make to the very best of the film world. To celebrate the art that is film-making, the LA film festival 2010, brings to you the critically acclaimed Pat Tillman documentary – The Tillman Story.

Year after year this film festival has been the testimonial to smash world-wide hits delivered by the film fraternity. For example, it was here that the movie “The Devil Wears Prada” was premiered which went on to become a super-hit world-wide.

The very famed and names of the most acclaimed directors of the world will surely make you understand the kind of response and cheers the festival is met with. This is perhaps the only film festival in the world where the height of anticipation exceeds the film-makers enthusiasm! No wonder that this place is considered as the Mecca of launching new and bold directors and filmmakers.

You can log on to the official site to have a glimpse of what the film festival has in store for you. The magnum opus would surely be the film made by the 10 independent filmmakers of Mexico – together!

Needless, to say, this year it has all the fanfare to already be a history in the making. The participation has seen a record turnout and if the marketing gurus are to be believed, the ticket sales would fly through the roof on the opening day.

If you’re looking for a welcome change from the films that bore you and overly criticized, this is the place to be.

Doug LeClaire, show director says, “Asbury’s mission is to share the magic of short films with movie enthusiasts who are looking for more than what the Hollywood formula offers. Audiences always re-discover the beauty of ‘less is more’ from our discerning selection of short films and this year, we promise to deliver yet another captivating show!”

This year’s roster includes two past Asbury Shorts selections, ‘Balance’ (1989 Oscar Winner for Best Animated Short Film) and ‘Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase’ (1992 Oscar Winner for Best Animated Short Film), as well as a new selection by award winning TV commercial Director Jason Reitman, ‘Consent’. ‘Consent’ has recently won the Audience Choice Award at The Seattle International Film Festival and a Grand Jury Prize at The Aspen Shorts Film Festival.

These shorts were carefully picked from more than 200 award-winning submissions by the worldÂ’s elite filmmakers that were honored at prominent United States festivals, including The Academy Awards, The Seattle International Film Festival, Cannes and Sundance Film Festivals.

Tom Mooney, president of Headquarters, the leading commercial film company in the United States, will host two hours of this wildly entertaining, dynamic, sexy and thought provoking event. Mooney has been in the commercial business for more than 20 years and was the former chairperson of the Association of Independent Commercial Producers award shoe at the Museum of Modern Art.

The 25th Asbury Short Film Show will be held on Thursday, November 11, 2004, at The New SchoolÂ’s Tishman Auditorium (West 12th St. between 5th & 6th Aves).

“LATE BLOOMER” SELECTED FOR THE LOS ANGELES SHORT FILM FESTIVAL. “Downtown Cult Hit” From New York City Transformed
Into A Compelling & Humorous Short Film Directed By Craig Macneill











NEW YORK (PRWEB) August 23, 2004

North lake Films is pleased to announce that Late Bloomer, the new short film by emerging director Craig Macneill and winner of the Audience Award for Best Short Film at the Lake Placid Film Festival, has been selected for the 2004 Los Angeles Short Film Festival.

Craig was inspired to make “Late Bloomer” while shooting a documentary on the film’s writer, Clay McLeod Chapman, star of the long-running off-Broadway sensation The Pumpkin Pie Show that has been called a “downtown cult hit” by Time Out New York.

In Late Bloomer, one boy discovers that something strange is happening in Miss Lovecraft’s seventh grade sexual education class –something much darker than the normal curriculum. AinÂ’t it Cool News says Late Bloomer is a “Cute funny film – a treat to horror fans.” The Richmond Times Dispatch reports “The audience didn’t move, except to breathe, laugh and apply bug spray.” Late Bloomer will screen at the Arclight Theater: Sat Sept 11th at 5:30pm (Theater #12).

Director Craig Macneill is a based in New York, where he has been building a career as a writer and director of films since graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1999 with a degree in film production.

Playwright and storyteller Clay McLeod Chapman has seen his short fiction transposed to the stage for over a decade, produced in Romania, Scotland, Ireland and in the U.S. At the age of 26, Clay has published a collection of short stories, Rest Area (Hyperion Press, 2002), a novel entitled Miss Corpus (Hyperion Press, 2003), and been selected by The New Yorker as the featured emerging author for its 2003 “Reading Glasses” series.

The film score for Late Bloomer was composed and performed by One Ring Zero. The band has shared billings with pacesetting performers and musicians such as Cibo Matto; Medeski, Martin, and Wood; The Magnetic Fields; Thurston Moore; and The Roots.

Entering its eighth year, the LA Shorts Fest is the largest short film festival in the world and one of the few recognized by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences. The festival attracts the highest caliber of short films made each year. Since itÂ’s inception, nineteen festival participants have gone on to earn Academy Award nominations and five have won the Oscar.

Craig Macneill will be at the Festival and available for interviews. To schedule an interview or request a copy of the film, please contact Craig Macneill at 646.765.6806 or visit http://www.northlakefilms.com
