Summer 2014 update

          Hello there and happy summer. It’s been a long time since the Flood Tide news page has seen any action! But, there’s some news to share, so here we are. Flood Tide premiered at the Torino Film Festival this past November, and this summer the film will begin screening around […]

Flood Tide Poster!

We’ve printed a limited first run of beautiful Flood Tide movie posters painted by artist Michael Gaughan with lettering by Marshall LaCount. The posters are 28″ x 18″ and printed on 100lb uncoated (matte) paper. In other words, they look and feel really nice.  We’ve got about 75 left and they’re $35 (including shipping within […]

Flood Tide World Premier

We’re happy to announce that the world premier of Flood Tide will be at the 2013 Torino Film Festival, November 24th. Torino is a great festival and it’s an honor to be included in the great lineup of films this year. Flood Tide will be screening four times throughout the festival as part of the […]

Empire Drive-In

It’s been almost a month since Empire Drive-In opened for four short days at the 01SJ BIennial. It was an incredibly magical space that exceeded all of our expectations. After preparing for months and working for weeks it was amazing to see the theater filled with people in the cars, on top of the cars […]

Empire Drive-In: Moving In

We’re in San Jose right now (we being Jeff Stark, Robin Frohardt, Ian Page, Brett James and Todd Chandler). We’re working on an installation for 01SJ Biennial. Empire Drive-In is an indoor drive-in movie theater built from salvaged materials and filled with junked cars. Empire Drive-In started as an idea for the perfect theater in […]

Kickstarter: Funded!

Last night at 10:30pm the fundraising campaign for Flood Tide on ended. We exceeded our goal of $10,000. Fundraising can be tedious and boring. It would be much more exciting to write here about the collaborative process of DIY filmmaking, about living and shooting a film aboard junk rafts, about pretty much about anything. […]

Flood Tide: Remixed on the East River

Last Wednesday was the premier screening of Flood Tide: Remixed, the live performance version of Flood Tide accompanied by a live score by Dark Dark Dark. The screening was at Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City and co-presented by Socrates, Rooftop Films and the Museum of the Moving Image. It was a scorching hot […]

Kickstarter: Almost halfway!

About two and a half weeks ago we launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise finishing funds for Flood Tide. Our goal is  $10,000 and we have 70 days total in which to raise it (or we get nothing). We’ve been bowled over by the amount of support for the project– we’re almost halfway after just […]

New Site

We’re really happy to have a newly created website with the help of the amazingly talented and patient Gregg Osofsky. While it looks fairly similar to the previous site (designed and built by Flood Tide cinematographer Ava Berkofsky one late night between shoots in 2008) the guts are totally different. There’s all kinds of new features […]
