Three quick updates. First, we’re popping the champagne for our 2017 short film “The Outsider” after learning the 25th Annual Sedona International Film Festival named it an official selection. This nine-day festival is a regular stop for many top independent films. This year, Sedona’s program includes Oscar-nominated films “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “Cold War.” Director Scott Takeda and producer Lori Allred will attend the two screenings later this month.
Second, Takeda also recently attended the Hollywood screening of Netflix’ “Velvet Buzzsaw” at the Egyptian Theatre. He was a guest of “Remembering Us” lead actor Mike Ostroski and frequent BS Filmworks actor Kristen Rakes. Both costar in the film opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo and John Malkovich. The film just premiered at Sundance and is directed by the Oscar-nominated Dan Gilroy.
And third, Ostroski appears this weekend in a Super Bowl commercial for Pampers. He plays a backup singing dad to John Legend and Adam Levine. Ostroski is in the back row, third from the left. Congrats Mike!
