The Collector goes 35mm...













Last week, among some 1000+ Chicago film enthusiasts, I sat and watched [heard] the first-ever Flashpoint Academy produced film The Collector in Grant Park on a gargantuan screen with a killer sound system. The film, directed by FP Academic Dean Paula Froehle, was not only accepted as a short to be screened at the Chicago Outdoor Film Festival, but is living and breathing proof our PRODUCTION-IN-ACTION component has real-world impact. Though the festival could not accommodate our multi-channel surround mix, the stereo playback system at the venue was first-rate and, of course, it was terrific to see it projected as a 35mm print.
