Greenburgh Filmmakers Head to Westport Festival →
Just spoke to Matt Bultman of The Daily Greenburgh about 10 AM Productions!
I really wish that I could sit here and tell you that we won the Greenwich Youth FIlm Festival. But the fact of the matter is that we didn’t. We didn’t even win the PSA Category. In fact, we didn’t even place. Not gonna lie, we were all a little bit shocked. The competition in our category wasn’t really that good and we all definitely thought that we had the best...

Just when you think you’re all done with submitting DVD copies to film festivals, the director calls you and says that one of the judges scratched the disc.
Just talked to the director of the Greenwich Youth Film Festival and she told me the 2 unannounced “secret” Grand Prize Awards AND OH MY GOD WE HAVE TO WIN
10 more days until the Greenwich Youth Film Festival!
Statistics The international Westport Youth Film Festival had well over 500 submissions, and about 70 were accepted. There are 12 films competing in Chase’s category, which is Social Action. The 1st Annual Greenwich Youth Film Festival had about 150 submissions. The odds weren’t exactly in our favor, but we still did it.
Heading over to a Westport Youth Film Festival fundraiser tonight! It’s a screening of the 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine. Producer Al Brodax will be there to introduce this award-winning work and speak to the audience about its production. The evening will be moderated by Sumner Jules Glitcher, emeritus professor at NYU. When I ordered the tickets, I got in touch with the director of...
Chase has been accepted into the Westport Youth Film Festival!
Working on posters for Chase.
myfirstnameisjackson: This is the one-minute, PSA cut of “Chase.” It has been submitted to both the Greenwich and Westport Youth Film Festivals. Your feedback is highly appreciated! “Chase” has been selected as a finalist for the Greenwich Youth Film Festival!
Just heard back from the office of David Ives’ agent and the film rights for “Sure Thing” are not available. ‘Tis a sad day for 10 AM Productions.
Just contacted A’Mangiare restaurant in Elmsford requesting permission to shoot on location.
Currently requesting approval from Dramatists Play Service to adapt “Sure Thing” by David Ives to a short film.
Here’s the general concept for First World Problems: The Movie Timothy Wright dreams of being a rapper, but feels like he’ll never be “real” because he lives an average suburban, middle class life. He complains to his friends about living too good of a life and secretly wishes that he was “blacker.” One day he wakes up, his world turned upside down. Somehow, he now finds himself living in...
Upcoming Projects The Burns 24hr Film Challenge Status N/A May 18-19 we will be participating in the Jacob Burns 24hr Film Challenge. It’s pretty straightforward, we have 24 hours to produce a short film. In that time period, we have to work completely from scratch; no outside already completed work can be brought in. We have unlimited access to the Jacob Burns Film Center’s film...
Upcoming Projects First World Problems: The Movie Status: Concept I woke up this morning with this idea freshly in my mind. I can’t remember the last time I’ve had such good luck. I always hear people complain about how they’ll never be a “true” artist because they didn’t suffer. Coming from a middle-class suburban lifestyle, I can almost see what those...
Upcoming Projects Buddy Wakefield, “Human the Death Dance” Status: Concept A while back I shot over an email to hailed spoken word artist Buddy Wakefield requesting permission to use a poem of his in a future 10 AM Production. Not shortly there after, I received a brief, but positive, response from him granting us permission. Since then, I’ve been thinking of ways to...
Upcoming Projects: Anti-Internet Censorship PSA Status: Postproduction We shot and started editing this a couple months ago when the SOPA bill was a hot topic. Unfortunately, I think we might’ve taken too long with this one, as the issue has almost become obsolete. That and the fact that I wasn’t really happy with the project when we began postproduction might lead me to...
The Progress of Chase: PSA Cut It was now time to submit “Chase” to student film festivals. One of the biggest problems we had was deciphering what category it fit into. Certainly it wasn’t a narrative, but it wasn’t your average PSA either. In the end, we decided to cut it down to a minute and market it as a Public Service Announcement. Cutting it down to a minute...
The Progress of Chase: Extended Cut After taking in some great feedback from the first cut of “Chase,” we set out again for a second day of shooting. We focused on more action shots and tried to emphasize the intensity between the two runners. As far as postproduction goes, the music change was essential. In addition, the editing was way more seamless than the first edit, as we were...
The Progress of Chase: First Cut Our first short film, “Chase,” has gone through roughly three cuts. This video was an early concept done on iMovie (the horror) that has since evolved into a much more sophisticated short. Shot at 10 AM on a brutally cold winter morning, we didn’t get in all the shots that were necessary and definitely took some shortcuts. As a result, it’s...
