I am pleased to announce that SHALLOW WATERS can now be viewed for free on Youtube.
First Run Features, the largest distributor of documentary films to colleges, is now representing "Shallow Waters: the Public Death of Raymond Zack."
Shallow Waters is now available to rent or buy digitally on Vimeo, here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/shallowwaters/197204492
Shallow Waters was chosen for screening from over 700 films submitted. It won the award for BEST DOCUMENTARY by the organizers and audience of this prestigious film festival and by the mayor of New Hope, PA.
A beautiful Art Deco theater in Alameda packed with passionate Alamedans marked the fulfillment of my dream begun 4+ years ago. My thanks to Connie Jo Sechrist (who MC’ed the Q&A) , @Tracy Rosenberg (executive-director of Media Alliance) and the indomitable @David Howard (of Action Alameda News) for pulling it off and putting it together. More than 150 people attended, including the new and sympathetic mayor of Alameda, @Trish Herrera Spencer, and Ray’s foster mom, Dee Berry.
This is to be the first of a series of interviews that DP/cameraman Clay is putting together to illustrate how camera and director work together. It is to be a series on the cameraman's POV. The interview was done after the screening in Alameda which was filmed by Clay and his crew.
A half-hour interview with David Howard (in studio), Jaime Longhi (on Skype from London) and the lovely host Connie Sechrist..
Front Page coverage.....for a dollar.
The good folks at the California Film Institute are helping to get out the word about the January 31st screening in Alameda. Many thanks to them.
There's been a push by citizens of Alameda to have a screening of SHALLOW WATERS in an Alameda Theater.
Thanks to the energy and tenacity of David Howard, local investigative reporter and blogger (who features in the film), and the generosity of Media Alliance, a democratic communications advocate, the beautiful, art-deco, Auction House Theater, will host a screening of SHALLOW WATERS followed by a filmed Q&A with the director.
