Tag Archives: NCSA


SXSW starts to tomorrow and there is a lot of NCSA Alumni at SXSW. Who? What? Where? When? Now? No? Really? Wait…what was that? Shoot! Shoot her! Shoot her! (Clumsy, uncalled for Jurassic Park: Check)

Pilgrim Song
Director: Martha Stehpens
Producer: Adam Tate
Director of Photography: Alexander Sablow
Editor: Nathan Whiteside
Actors: Brendan McFadden (film) and Michael Abbot Jr. (drama)

I met Nate and Tate at the same time. I showed up to a party at a house late. They were very drunk and shooting a BB gun. So, I image if there in Texas together don’t show up to a party they’re at late. Because in Texas it will probably be a real gun. And, they will shoot you.

Hopefully we will have more to report on Pilgrim Song soon.

Festival Favorites:
Director: Craig Zobel
Director of Photography: Adam Stone
Actor: Michael Abbot (twice? he’s like the Jude Law of SXSW)

Compliance if you don’t know premiered at Sundance. It got a lot of attention. Magnolia films bought it. Exciting stuff.

Pilgrim Song in SXSW!!!

Pilgrim Song has a whole slew of NCSA alumnus involved in the movie.

Starting with Martha Stephens who wrote and directed the film. This is her second film at SXSW by the way. And last time she won the “We Believe in You” Award Produced by Adam Tate (once was in a movie I made about bigfoot and couldn’t remember who I was a couple years later), shot by Alexander Sablow (former roommate who left me sleeping on the kitchen floor once), and edited by Nathan Whiteside (whose better than anyone in the world at making me feel like an idiot almost drug me into a fight with someone at Blazers game and is one of the largest loves of my life) and production design by Elizabeth McKee (who didn’t go to NCSA but whom I have met once and is a lovely person)

Go here at SXSW for more information. What are you doing? Go already!
