Watch the First 10 Min of the Sundance Feature Film “On the Corner of Ego and Desire”
As many of the IFH Tribe know already, earlier this year I released my second feature film, On the Corner of Ego and Desire.
The film was shot on a budget of about $3000 in just under four days, around 36 hours total of filming. Filmed on a 1st generation Blackmagic Pocket Camera 1080p using a Sigma 18-35mm lens as the main lens with a few vintage lenses rounding out the kit. It was edited, color graded, and mastered on Davinci Resolve.
It World Premiered at the Raindance Film Festival, and played at NewFilmmakers, Bravemaker Film Festival and had its Los Angeles Premiere at the world-famous Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
On the Corner of Ego and Desire is easily my favorite film I have ever produced. It is a true representation of many of my thoughts and sensibilities. Below is the synopsis and trailer.
Three hapless independent filmmakers make the trek to the Sundance Film Festival and go through absolute hell in search of the elusive producer that is supposedly going to buy their independent feature film, all within 24 hours. With a producer who stole money from his mother’s retirement account to fund the film, to a director who thinks she’s the next Francois Truffaut, to an actor/editor who is a doormat for everyone, this motley crew of misfit filmmakers have a tough time navigating the chaotic world of the Sundance Film Festival. Ignorance, foolishness, and above all ego drive the team to implosion as they struggle to realize their filmmaking dreams.
During these crazy times, I thought that the Tribe could use a laugh so I decided to release the first 10 min of the film online for everyone to get a taste of the madness that is On the Corner of Ego and Desire.
If you want to watch the rest of the film for free you can go to Amazon Prime or Tubi. If you want to rent or purchase the film to give a bit of support to IFH then you can go to IFHTV.com or iTunes. Enjoy the sneak preview of On the Corner of Ego and Desire.
