Gina, An Actress, Age 29 on The Auteurs

For some time I’ve debated putting my short films online. My work is often quiet, has relaxed pacing, and it can be dialogue heavy. That, combined with the fact that some of my films are over 20 minutes probably makes at least some of my work not the best candidate for online viewing.

I’ve been impressed, though, with what The Auteurs is doing with online video. Their catalog caters to cinephiles, and their site’s design and interface encourages people to pay attention to the videos they’re watching. So I’m happy to say that my short film Gina, An Actress, Age 29, was recently selected for the site. It’s just gone “live”, and the timing is fitting, as the film premiered around this time of year in 2001, at Sundance.

For now, the film is free for the first 1000 viewers. Spread the word, tell your friends, and become a fan of it if you like.

One way or another, if you do watch it, I hope you enjoy it!

    Congrats! I can’t wait to screen this film again, but this time in my pajamas. Not to be “that guy” who rushes into marketing queries, but I’d love to hear about how you find having “Gina” on I just did an interview with Paul Osborne, whose documentary “Official Rejection” has been available for streaming on Amazon and as one and two-disc sets. Far and away, he says, the more expensive two disc set sells more than any other option. Interesting.

    I don’t care how much money you make (though may it be as much as you want!), but I am really intrigued at the idea of getting into the indie distribution business. Their design and user experience is unmatched; they really did a great job at becoming the “Criterion” of web video.

    Well then, I expect to hear more of this venture on the blog, and I can’t wait to watch the film later.

    I really enjoyed this short film. The surprise in the factory scene is classic. Both main characters were superb in this film.
