We’re very proud of Dylan Sprayberry, who plays the 10-year-old version of the main character in Kurt’s film Shuffle, and now plays the teen version of Superman in Man of Steel, opening today. You can see him acting with Kevin Costner at 0:54 in the film’s trailer.
“Shuffle” just won the Audience Award for Best Feature Film at SFF-Rated Athens, the International Science Fiction & Fantasy Film Festival of Athens, the film’s 11th award. Thank you, Greece!
Kurt was interviewed yesterday about his documentary films Dear Zachary and Drive-In Movie Memories by two-time Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winner Ondi Timoner on her web show “BYOD: Bring Your Own Doc”. Watch the interview here.
This weekend, Kurt received the Frank Capra Award for his film Shuffle, presented by Frank Capra III, grandson of the legendary director of It’s a Wonderful Life, at the Fallbrook International Film Festival. The award is given to the film that “most lifts the human spirit, fostering a positive and (hopefully) lasting outcome.”
Here, finally, is the EPILOGUE to Dear Zachary, a 14 minute short that tells the story of the quest to complete the film and how it became instrumental in changing law. It is offered as a THANK YOU to everyone who supported this journey, and to satisfy the curiosity of everyone who has wanted to know what happened after the film’s release.
