Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 6, 2007
In an exciting new development for film buffs and filmmakers in the Austin area, the Austin Movie Show has joined forces with the Wolfpack Film Group to bring independent filmmakers a place to showcase their work. (EPK: http://www.amfmstudios.com/wolfpack)
Nuno's on Sixth will be hosting the Wolfpack Film Screenings (WPFS) on Wednesday nights starting May 2, 2007, at 6:30 p.m. The the Oaks in Manor will be hosting screenings on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays (Time TBA).
The Wolfpack Film Group is one of the fastest growing well equiped filmmaker groups in Austin, comprised of professional and semi-professionals. The Wolfpack is distinguishable from the other independent groups because it includes above the line and below the line crew members, artists of all types and several production companies. This collaboration of all ages and levels of experience banded together in order to raise production value on films in the Austin area by pooling collective resources and talent.
The Wolfpack Film Screenings, which just kicked off this month at Nuno's on Sixth Street, will be adding Jegar Erickson of the Austin Movie Show as a host. Erickson, son of Austin's legendary Roky Erickson and a popular movie critic, will bring his hip sense of humor and easy presence to the screenings.
Each screening will feature great independent films that most of the general public has never seen because they are not part of the Hollywood/Movie Theater distribution system.
Two venues have joined the Wolfpack Film Group as sponsors and will host the screenings: Nuno's Bar on Sixth Street and The Oaks in Manor, Texas. Nuno's bar already has a screen and sound system in place. The Oaks will be adding a screen to their current large live music stage, utilizing the existing sound system. The Oaks will also be offering a more intimate screening option on their covered deck as well.
The Wolfpack Film Group is also planning a large event on August 25th and 26th called Wolfpack On The Prowl (WpoP), a Battle of the Bands to be held at the Oaks in Manor, Texas. Fifty percent of the proceeds will be given to major charities like Loaves and Fishes and A Safe Place.
Two contests will be held, one is the Battle of the Bands, the other is a filmmakers challenge. The winner of the band battle will be given a video shoot prize package, the winner of the filmmaker contest will be given a two-day package including a grip truck, lighting and cameras for use on a shoot.
