Slamberta 2011 was a incredible night of music video and shorts. Dramatic, comedy, period pieces and music videos, shot in HD, 8mm and more. The wide range of talent, perspective and vision is but a sample of the unique storytellers that live in Alberta.
The lineup, as the night went on was:
Blue Eyed Boy – Todd Kipp and Marc Vandergraff
Matt Andersen’s Fired Up – Troy Niemans
The Family Journal – Cole Pollack
CGY / Day Job – Luke Black
Defensive Aggressive – James Recksiedler
The Sophomore Jakes’ Mischief!!! Mischief!!! – Marcus Rideout
I want to thank the filmmakers for providing the content for me, for attending and being an important part of the indie film scene in Calgary and by proxy, Alberta. I want to thank the people who attended for supporting local film, independent Film and personally, for supporting creative types such as myself who are in constant need of validation and praise, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Big shout out to Melrose Cafe and Bar, for the great venue, excellent setup, video and sound. The staff was incredible, they took real good care of me, solved all my technical issues and turned a potential blow out into a great evening of film. Big thanks to Steve personally.
It was a great time, and will definitely evaluate the successes of the event, and will look forward to Slamberta 2012.
