Artificial Ink in 2020 Film Fests

During the COVID-19 pandemic, most film festivals are postponing their events or switching to an online streaming format. Artificial Ink Creative worked on a few creative projects that have recently been selected for screening in late May 2020, particularly Cat Fly Film Festival‘s “Cat Fly and Chill” event as well as ConCarolinas Short Film Festival, not to mention festival strategy work for other filmmakers.

“Cat Fly and Chill” is the latest event from Cat Fly Film Festival, originally intended as a three day screening in Asheville, North Carolina, though now rescheduled as an online streaming event. Ted Kendrick assisted Kira Bursky in extras casting and festival strategy for BEAUTIFUL MESS short film which plays on the first day, May 29th. The second day on May 30th will showcase multiple film projects produced by Ted Kendrick including the DOUBLE AGENT short film which was also written and directed by Kendrick, MOMHEART short film starring Gunner Willis and directed by Joe Naylor and Joe Pellegrino, as well as the “Elevator Went” music video for the Asheville based band Wyla which was directed by Rome Widenhouse.

THE REPLICA RAID II short film starring Jeff Alexander was written, directed, and produced by Ted Kendrick, and will play at the 2020 ConCarolinas Short Film Festival, which is traditionally paired with a comic and gaming convention in Charlotte, NC but will stream online this year in response to the pandemic. THE REPLICA RAID III final installment is in pre-production with the hope to film ASAP.

Follow both Cat Fly Film Fest and ConCarolinas Short Film Festival on social media for more information on the upcoming screening schedules, and tune in to the online livestreams at the end of May 2020 in an effort to support indie filmmaking.

REPLICA RAID II @ Geek Short Film Fest

THE REPLICA RAID II sci-fi short film was selected to screen at the 2019 Greek Short Film Festival in Charlotte, North Carolina as part of the Geek Gala event. The theme this year is Tiki Slumber Party-o-Rama. Don’t ask me what that means because I don’t know yet. The film festival runs throughout the day from 10am to 4pm as part of the Muggle Market at Noah’s Event Venue which is free to attend.

I’ve added laurels for the Geek Short Film Festival to the film poster, next to the ones from Cat Fly Indie Film Festival which is where RR2 premiered in March 2019. THE REPLICA RAID III, the final installment of the unanticipated series, is in development with a finished first draft underway in edits. More on that to come.
