CHAOGRAPHY: Variations on the Theme of Freedom, a new fiction film project celebrating New Yorks jazz scene, has been named a Semi-Finalist in the first annual Ultimate Filmmaker Competition
(UFC) presented by Filmmakers Alliance. One of 25 entries selected from approximately 1,000 submissions, the film is slated to feature acclaimed jazz saxophonist Stacy Dillard
and pianist Eric Reed
in starring roles.
For the Semi-Final Round, members of the public are encouraged to vote for the project they would most like to see funded. A video interview with writer/director Douglas Chang has been posted at the site, where viewers can get a sense of the project and a taste of Dillard and his band playing at Smalls Jazz Club in Greenwich Village. All votes must be cast by January 8, 2010.
If youd like to see great jazz lovingly rendered on film, please take a moment to visit the UFC website
and vote for CHAOGRAPHY, urges Chang. Were proud to have made it to the Semi-Finals of this prestigious contest. We think its a sign that there's a real thirst out there for this kind of jazz-related film.
