Filmmaker and critic Tom Russell, whose review I linked to a while back, has made a list of his favorite films of the past decade.  The Lionshare is on that list:

A multifaceted examination of how culture is created and disseminated and notions of ownership, all packed into a tight and sprightly sixty-five minutes. Entertaining, maturely stylish, ambitious without ever overreaching. The filmmaker has made the film available for free. It’s worth your time.

This is quite an honor to bestow upon our little film.  Thanks to Tom and everyone else who has supported it.

Charm Face’s album release party was awesome, as was their Lionshare-tie-in video.  Check it out:

Bracey Smith and the band he played with in the movie went on to form a band called Charm Face.  They’ve been achieving a lot of success and tomorrow night is the release party for their first album Hup.  Before they play they will also premiere the Lionshare-inspired music video for “Comfort Food,” a song featured at the end of the movie.  Bracey had a great concept that results in the video being what I consider an unofficial ’sequel’ to The Lionshare, even further blurring the line between reality and the world of the movie.

Here’s a quick behind the scenes video Bracey put together of the shoot:

So check out their free show tomorrow night and get there early to see the premiere of the video!
