Comedy “Three-Fifty” is a hit on the film festival circuit, European cable, Asian cable and now, in the classroom. Hilarious and meaningful to our times, the mythology of “Three-Fifty” has universal appeal. Though presented as comedy, “Three-Fifty”‘s theme of privacy rights, dishonesty, consequences and redemption stimulate discussions.

“Three-Fifty”  and it’s Teacher’s Guide have been chosen by varied instructors.  On the security and privacy rights side “Three-Fifty” was chosen by an instructor for a Post-Naval Academy  course in surveillance.    On the artistic side, a composer chose it to enhance his residency at Maharishi University.

    A) 1 DVD of “Three-Fifty”  (NTSC)  Currently available only in English

    B) PDF of “Teacher’s Guide” which is ten discussion questions and exercises for use in the classroom. The teacher’s guide was written by Jungian and Terra psychologist Craig Chalquist, MS, PhD.

We have to say Sonoma International Film Festival is an outstanding festival.  We had a great time and the films are excellent.  Sonoma is a beautiful, completely live-able,  little town and the people are extremely gracious.
Me:  The people are so happy!
Co-producer:  They’re within walking distance of the best wineries in the country.  Of course they’re happy!

Smart, fun audiences who are so curious about the filmmakers. Great parties, (more wineries) and their awards?  ha, ha…get this – magnums of wine are their statues with the award hand written on the bottle in silver ink.  Score! Wish we had scored an “award” like that, yet we are content with our five awards.

We stayed outside of town in a guest house with a view that will knock your socks off. Hills, vineyards, trees, more hills, green grass, flowers everywhere,  a few cows, a few sheep – truly – extraordinarily beautiful you can barely believe it’s real.  We’ll post photos as soon as we can — and we’ll post our wine notes, too.  Food, wine and film — so perfect.  Be sure to put it on your calendar for 2010.   You will have a magical week.

A copy of “Three-Fifty” for your collection?

Dear Friends and Fans… As always, thanks for your support. We appreciate it!  Three-Fifty now has 5 awards, and festival requests still arrive weekly. Fantastic.
Right now you can get your own copy of THREE-FIFTY for your home collection with your membership to Spiritual Cineman Circle.

Is Three-Fifty a spiritual film?  Think about it.  It’s a story of what happens when you don’t tell the truth, a story of CONSEQUENCES, and a redemptive ending — all while making you laugh your ass off!   That’s pretty spiritual.  
Buy it, keep it, share with giggley friends…;-)

Three-Fifty screens at Beloit International Film Festival

Posted on Updated on

Our comedy, short film THREE-FIFTY will screen in Beloit Wisconsin at the Beloit International Film Festival… January 17 – 20.   Festival Operations Director, Greg Girard saw THREE-FIFTY in Milwaukee and phoned us from the road on his drive back to Beloit.  “We love it!  We want you in Beloit.  I just sent you an email, but I wanted to talk to you in person!” he said.   “Ok!” I replied, “Sure! Beloit! Sounds great.  Where is Beloit?”

Beloit is Beloit, Wisconsin.   Moviemaker Magazinecalled Beloit International Film Festival “the next big thing” and a “must-attend event.”

 I made many trips to Wisconsin when I lived and worked in Chicago, IL.  The train ride is beautiful and I’m sure the January landscape will bring beautiful snowy sights to anyone who attends.   We’ll have a THREE-FIFTY supporter there in person who can share the stories of the making of THREE-FIFTY with you.

We want to say a personal “THANK YOU!” to Greg Girard, Operations Director  and Rod Beaudoin, Executive Director of Beloit Int’l Film Festival for seeing the value and humor in THREE-FIFTY.  You have great taste.  We are honored to be chosen for this outstanding festival and send wishes of great success for Beloit Int’l Film Festival 2008.  Thank you, Thank you.    Remember, almost everything you want to know about THREE-FIFTY is at www.threefiftythemovie.com and then there are more photos, slide shows, video clips at www.myspace.com/threefiftythemovie
