BRAINROT Screening At The Cellar Door


On Wednesday, March 1, The Cellar Door will be graciously hosting the premiere screening of our first feature film, BRAINROT. Tickets will only be $5 and can be purchased at vandaliatv.com/brainrot. Over the past month or so, I've been working with Nate Cesco of VandaliaTV and Lateland to organize this whole ordeal and here we are. I am very excited that people are finally going to see the movie.


In some completed form or another, BRAINROT has been sitting on my computer since July 22, 2022. July 22 was the first time I showed a rough cut to my friends who were in the movie. Organizing around their schedules, I showed the movie a couple more times, with each cut being more refined than the last. Their input was invaluable to achieving the final cut. Plus, it was fun to watch it with them after the 10 long months it took to shoot.


I am very grateful to have the friends that I do. This would have been impossible without their help, input and support. For over a decade, I've been as active of a filmmaker as I possibly could and making a feature has been the main goal. With everyone's help along the way, and this instance in particular, they made it happen for me. They did a great job in this movie.


Not having made a feature for many years, I built up this romanticization of what it would be like when I finally did it and upon completion, obviously I was thrilled, but it was more anticlimactic than I thought it was going to be. The main attributing factor to that was that I had years of daydreaming stacked on top of each other, so either way it wasn't going to live up to this abstract feeling. That being said, I feel like one of the main reasons it didn't feel complete was because I hadn't released it yet. I had to wait to release it to accommodate requirements for film festivals I knew I wasn't going to get in, but I would never know for sure unless I tried. So having tried and failed (which I knew going in was the realistic outcome) to get into the out-of-reach festivals, setting up a homegrown release was my next objective.


With the help of Nate, we worked together to construct a plan. His know how and experience with setting up events for many years, as well as the fact that I couldn't trust anyone I didn't know to do it, he was very clearly most suited to help me out. I am appreciative of the massive effort on his part to get this screening set up. This is going to be exciting.
