Homegrown Revolution Trailer: Premiers Wild & Scenic Film Festival Jan 9-11

Last year when in a matter of three days we whipped together a short video about PTF for a presentation that Farmer D was giving at UCLA who would have thought that this little video would top over 111,000 views on You Tube & be invited to screen at Wild & Scenic Film Festival in 2009!

TRAILER, ARTWORK – CHECK, CHECK

Posted up on our home office wall is the check list of things required from the Wild & Scenic Film Festival complete with deadline dates.

This week, we finished the trailer to the our own production of Homegrown Revolution and related “film” artwork (see left).

So far we have kept up with their deadlines.  We have till December 15th to send the final (remixed and recut) version of Homegrown Revolution (12 min)  We are working on it as we speak.

What’s good with this latest project, besides giving PTF a whole ‘nother platform in which to inspire people to be the change, is that having to update the short film we were able to organized the stacks of mini dvs that have loads of footage from the urban homestead.

Funny thing though while I was going through the many hours of footage I noticed there was a something missing – us!  Fast forwarding through the tapes went something like this: pretty garden, lovely harvest, cute animals, pretty garden, lovely harvests, more cute animals, a butterfly, bees, more bees.  Yeah, truth be told we aren’t too comfortable in front of the camera so we are noticeably absent from hours and hours of footage taken of the urban homestead.

We’ve been told many a times that we should start thinking about doing video webisodes.  We hear you, and we should – perhaps one day after we clear out a few things and make peace with the camera.

In the meantime enjoy the short trailer for the NEW HOMEGROWN REVOLUTION

Confused?

HomeGrown vs Homegrown Revolution

HomeGrown (56 min) is an independent documentary made by Robert Mcfalls.  Our family were just film “subjects” and had/have nothing to do with the making (other than being on camera) distribution or screening of this documentary.

Homegrown Revolution (12 min), on the other hand, is our own homegrown, in-home production overview of our family’s urban homestead project.  After the Wild & Scenic Film Festivalwe hope to make this film available to the public for community screenings.

    If it’s any consolation, I’m not a fan of watching video online so don’t feel in any rush to do webisodes on my account! 😉 But I do enjoy your stills, people or no people.

    (That said I’m still trying to get my system to give me audio with the recently posted Victory Gardens vid. Perhaps that’s part of my aversion to online vids?)

    I love watching your video. I love that you are making it work in the small space you are. It’s inspirational. I am growing a veggie and herb garden on my two balconies, and this is my first time with containers. This is a bit of a learning experience for me!

    Artfully inspiring!

    Truly a gem. As rich as the love, laughter and tears that one consciously committed family has put into their own delicious dream. Tastes divine, already ….
