CLOSING NIGHT FILM & VIP AFTER PARTY (VIP PASSES)

7:00 PM Narrative Feature with Q&A

God’s Ears

2008 | USA | 111 Minutes | Dir. Michael Worth

Northern California Premiere

An autistic boxer and a nomadic stripper form a tenuous friendship that helps them both to better understand the world that appears to have left them both behind. Noah Connelly (Michael Worth) is an aspiring boxer from Oakland, California. Most of Noah’s days are spent cleaning the floors at his local gym, patiently waiting for the perfect moment when he’ll finally step into the ring and his future will come into focus. To the casual observer, Noah leads an entirely unremarkable existence, but exotic dancer Alexia (Margot Farley) is far from the casual observer. One day, after crossing paths seemingly by chance, Noah begins to affect the way Alexia views the opposite sex. To this point in her life, Alexia has taken a somewhat transient approach to relationships. Now, as her friendship with Noah begins to show signs of becoming something more serious, Alexis discovers that her approach to love may hint at a deeper pain that she isn’t sure she possesses the power to confront. Encouraged by the owner of the gym (John Saxon) to introduce Alexia to his family, Noah invites her on a journey that will take her out of her comfort zone while challenging her entire perception of love. Perhaps if Alexia can find the courage to confront her deepest fears, Noah can summon the self-confidence to strap on the gloves and prove himself as a true pugilist.

*Director Michael Worth was raised in the Bay Area, and over half of the film was shot locally.

The closing night after party for VIP pass holders will follow the screening.

A surreal look at a day in the life of outsourcing (sperm, McDonald’s orders, executive dictation); telemarketers/telemarketed; adult diapers in casinos; the buy button in the human skull; the implanting of digital chips in willing humans.

Crowd Sourcing Your Project: Get Involved w/ Malibu Hill The Movie

If you ever wanted to get involved with film, video or new media creation, then a good way to get your feet wet is to participate in projects that are using some form of “crowd sourcing.”

Marc Street the Hero in Malibu Hill the Movie

Marc Street, the Hero, in Malibu Hill the Movie

As a marketer, I will have to confess, the project I am writing about and hoping you’ll want to follow and share has a lot of the elements I like in a film… and it is just getting started.

I love scary movies….. and hot men. Okay, I confess, there are more elements (like a good story for starters) but in the marketing of it – these are two things that will catch my eye, the genre and the leading man/woman… and yours!

Meet Marc Street… (follow him @MarcStreet on Twitter)

A friend of mine, Prince Boucher, is hoping you’ll want to not only follow and be a fan of this production, but you’ll tell your friends about it too. (Follow Prince @PrinceBoucher on Twitter). Prince is one of those exciting, forward-thinking talents that believes the power of social media will be how we produce entertainment like “Malibu Hill” and other projects.

Prince is uses the funding project site called IndieGoGo. This is a really great site that helps filmmakers “pitch” their project with clips and info as well as giving you the option of donating time, items, or money to be a co-creator on this project.

For as little as $10 you can help this film get funded and when it is released get a digital version (cheaper than going to the movies!!) Click here to go to IndieGogo for Malibu Hill the Movie.

If you’d like to find out more about Malibu Hill the movie (premise: everyone is walking away from their homes due to the rising number of foreclosures, but one place, a cabin in Malibu, doesn’t want it’s inhabitants to leave). Oh yeah, follow @MalibuHill on Twitter and fan the movie on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/malibuhill.

Here’s a teaser for this film:

Finally, be sure to at least check out more photos of the hero (Marc Street) and submit your idea for his character’s name and meet Prince – he’s got a welcome video that will give you some more info.
