ImageThe following is from Filmnut host Jeff Schubert:

The second annual streamy awards are now open to nominations... The Streamys are still new but are the only recognized awards show for content on the web and had a lot of recognizable stars in its first year so I expect it to be even better in 2010. I nominated Renee for best guest star on a web series (Filmnut of course)... if you would like to do the same, go here:

The details can be found in this topic by Filmnut Host Jeff Schubert on ROC Chat:

You can vote once a day until the January 22, 2010 nomination voting deadline.

Renee Attends "Fitful" Premiere

ImageThe newest Brauer Productions independent feature Fitful played to a sold out audience Wednesday night at the Traverse City State Theatre. Both stars of the film, Actors Larry Joe Campbell and Renee O'Connor, flew in from Los Angeles to attend the event.

"The fact that 600 people turned out to watch our movie the week before Christmas is another testament to just how supportive of film this community is. A big part of the reason I have been able to keep making films is this amazing place and the people I share it with," said Brauer.

Michael Moore introduced the film and Brauer, O'Connor and Campbell fielded questions from the audience and talked about their experiences making the movie after the showing. Read More

"FitFul" To Premiere On 16 December 2009

ImageTRAVERSE CITY -- Director and writer Rich Brauer is letting his hometown have the first look at his latest film.

"Fitful," a dark comedy/suspense movie starring Larry Joe Campbell and Renee O'Connor, will screen at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 16 at the State Theatre in downtown Traverse City. The movie was filmed this fall, with many scenes taking place on board the historic ship S.S. City of Milwaukee in Manistee.

"That's the fun thing about this. When you do a movie in a community, the community likes to look at the movie because of all the landmarks," Brauer said.

But the ship audiences will see in the movie has been transformed with "dramatic camera work" and lighting that turns it into a creepy setting that matches the actors' skillful performances, he said.
