Au Pair, Kansas selected for IFP Director’s Lab!

ifp_labs_09Unbelievable, just got notified the rough cut of Au Pair, Kansas was accepted into the prestigious IFP Director’s Lab.  I get to spend a week in NYC in June working with mentors in editing/music/marketing/festivals.  They only take 10 feature film projects in the emerging narratives section.  It’s a major deal.  So keyed that someone that doesn’t even know me, likes the movie.  And even better, getting into the Lab means Au Pair, Kansas is automatically selected for emerging narratives section at Independent Film Week (NYC in September, used to be called IFP Market.)  

Brad Roszell has been working hard getting this first cut done, and its paid off.  I love this film (even without music, which, as the editor’s always say, will save the scenes!)  I’m now allowing myself to actually believe that the film is going to be good.  Maybe I’m not really that deluded.  Thanks to everyone that helped out and worked on the tough and cold Lindsborg, Kansas shoot.  Wow, very cool!

    Woo-hoo! This is absolutely fantastic news and the best news we could have hoped for at this juncture. I couldn’t be happier for you, all the actors and crew who created this movie. The IFP Director’s Lab certainly made a great choice!

    Thanks, Jim. Yes, obviously very keyed. Busy putting together the package for Director’s Lab. But it’s a wonderful sign at this stage, to have it recognized in rough cut stage! And it’ll only get better with fine tuning the editing, music, sound effects, etc. Thanks for believing in Au Pair, Kansas. JT
