OTL - VOLARE - TAMELA D'AMICO
On The Lot, the new reality show for film directors (see our earlier posts listed below), has just announced the 50 semi-finalists (first name only).
Dedicated trackers on the OTL site have identified several of these (first name only) directors and paired them with the films they posted on the site. One of these is Tamela D'Amico (In addition to her home-page, she has an OTL profile.)
She posted on the OTL site a trailer for her prizewinning short film, Volare. There were some 12,000 films submitted in competition. (There are many more on the site.) Hers is listed as #80, suggesting that at least some of the selecting was done really early on in the submission window. Her film was uploaded on Oct 10, 2006; and as of right now (2007-05-16 03:42 AM EST) has been viewed 126,199 times.
The 3 minute film clip looks beautiful, seems interesting, and suggests the short film itself (which is 30 minutes long) is well written, well acted and well directed.
