Director Ronald Bronstein Takes Home Special Jury Prize from SxSW

Ever since we began working together nearly 3 years ago, Ronald Bronstein has been spending his spare time working on a personal film project entitled Frownland. Shooting, re-shooting, editing, digitizing, agonizing over a final cut, finally getting a perfect 35mm print; I didn't participate in any way in the production of this film, but I have been watching him bust his ass to get this thing done since the very first day I met him. I felt an incredible sense of relief when his efforts paid off and his film was accepted into SxSW 2007 where it would premiere and compete in the Narrative Feature category.

Relief turned into unprecedented joy today when I learned that his film took home the Special Jury Prize at SxSW. I can't say that I am surprised though; this film employs such prodigious agility with regards to writing, acting, cinematography and editing that I always knew that this film would stand out amongst it's competetors. Congrats to Ronald and his crew for getting the recognition they deserve.
