Three-Fifty DVD confiscated by land shark?

Posted on Updated on

What is this?  It looks like our “Three-Fifty” DVD (mailed via US Post office) was attacked  by a Land Shark.  Somewhere between the post office near my home and the 5 miles the  package traveled to get to El Segundo… it was sliced and diced and lost the DVD, but the  envelope and packaging made it to the address.

If you buy a DVD of “Three-Fiftywe promise we’ll take the utmost care in  shipping it to you – but we can’t guarantee it won’t be confiscated by a land shark.  If that happens, just call us, we’ll be sure you get a new DVD.  Buying DVDs is easy – just click HERE.

We can also talk about my Anne Frank complex and why “Despite everything, I believe the post office is good at heart.”

FilmSnobbery Live! : A Day at the Palace

“We started this screening series as a way to get filmmakers and audiences together to see movies that would not be available in your mainstream multiplex. We believe that good films deserve to be seen, and we know that moviegoers are hungry for something different. We want to make an event that is more than just people sitting in a dark room, we want to make a collaborative event where the audience is part of the action.”

DVDs of many of the films will be available for sale after the screening and they will have some filmmakers present.

We want to wish Nic and FilmSnobbery.com the best of luck with their monthly series!  Please share the screening information with your friends on the East Coast!

“Three-Fifty” next festival stops? Lithuania’s Vilnius Comedy Festival

Posted on Updated on

Lithuania is home of Vilnius Film Festival and this year Vilnius decided to          create Vilnius Comedy Film Festival and take the laughs out to the people.  “Three-Fifty” will screen in three (3) Lithuania cities in the next few weeks.   Which cities? So glad you asked.  Here is a map of the cities so you can follow along…

Lithuania has special significance for me (Melinda Augustina) as my first college level acting professor was from Lithuania.  He came to America as a young child when his family was fleeing Europe in WWII.  His name was Joseph Daubenas.  He was TOUGH — we were hopelessy naive.  We loved him and realized (somewhat) how lucky we were for him to have chosen to teach in Kansas City for a few years while working on his PhD.   He had studied and taught at American Academy of Dramatic Arts and acted and directed in New York for many years working a lot with Harold Clurman and orignating some roles Off-Broadway.   In one article Daubenas was called a “Tasmanian Devil” by a reporter who watched him direct a rehearsal in New York City. (Tasmania is pretty far from Lithuania, but it’s still a fun reference.)   One of his television roles was as a Mad Scientist — and that he was.

We are honored that “Three-Fifty” will screen in Lithuania and enjoying this great lesson that energy eventually returns from where it came.   And so we sign off with the Lithuanian National Anthem and photos of their beautiful country. Thank you, Lithuania.  😉  http://bit.ly/1aERfs
