Someone eloquently wrote about 'Nothing Really Happens'...and the verdict is:

JK.....it's a very positive review of our little movie from BFI's Sight&Sound Magazine!!! We ended up being the favorite of the fest to one person...we'll see how we fare at Sci-Fi London this week. Cheers!

“Oh, you’re at a crossroads,” says store clerk Behth (Anna Tran) in my favourite film from this year’s SCI-FI-LONDON. Behth is expertly diagnosing the condition of her customer, mattress store owner Dave Stimple (Adam Edwards), as he purchases his first-ever packet of cigarettes at the age of 30. Dave is clearly undergoing an identity breakdown, and looking for change. “I’ve been a passenger to my life,” he complains, as he struggles to rekindle his long-stagnant relationship with wife Jess (Lindsay Gustin), and to be understood – or even just noticed – by anybody else. Dave’s every conversation – with his weird brother-in-law Carl (Joseph Gaham), with neighbour Randy (Bobby Dornbos), with employee Miguel (Sami Ismail) and with Behth – seems to involve a profound lack of connection.

FIRST SUBMISSIONS/HARVEY

Hello everyone...just wanted to let you know, before Hurricane Harvey began wreaking havoc on Houston, we were able setup our website (nothingreallyhappens.com) and get our first three submissions out the door as the heavy rains were starting to come in last friday. So we will see how we fair with Sundance/Slamdance/SXSW when the time comes. 

But in the real world, a lot of people are suffering in our city and the response we've seen thus far has been amazing/very emotional. We've already done a bit of volunteering and donating between several members of the crew from the movie, and I will just echo what you have probably already heard...just, keep it up as with tragedies like this, there is an initial fervor to help, and then we grow accustomed to it, and not as many people are willing to put in the time/energy/money to help people. But Houston and the south east regions will take a long time to recover and get people back into their homes/back to their lives.

I know my anxiety is just now getting back to a normal level, and I didn't receive any damage or flooding...I can only imagine what it would be like in one of the many shelters, packed with people feeling absolutely crushed by all this. Just continue to do what you can into the next weeks or months as we put the pieces back together, collectively.
