Karyn Usher Accepts Screenplay Award at Ohio Independent Film Fest

November 3, 1999. The 1999 Ohio Independent Film Festival & Market kicked off with a bang! On Monday, November 1, award-winning Producer/Director Mark Archer (In the Company of Men and American Reel with David Carradine, Mariel Hemingway, Michael Maloney), and Ohio Independent Co-Directors Annetta Marion and Bernadette Gillota were guests on Around Noon with Dee Perry (90.3 WCPN) to talk about the festival and Archer's Hollywood Screen Actors Workshop this Saturday and Sunday.

Yesterday, our first ever Ohio Independent Film Festival T-shirts (black, long sleeved, very cool) were unveiled. Get yours before we sell out!

Also yesterday, Karyn Usher, winner of the Best Northcoast Screenplay Award, flew in from California to attend Script Mill and watch the presentation of her award-winning screenplay Small Things Considered. Chris Carmody (Greater Cleveland Media Development Corporation) presented Usher her $1,000 prize check. Says Ms. Usher, "This was a totally excellent opportunity for a writer to see her work come to life with real actors and real directing... The Ohio Independent and their staff did an amazing job, the reading was incredibly well cast. I'm so happy to be here!" A full house, despite the inclimate weather, showed up to watch Script Mill. Spotted in the crowd were filmmaker Jefferson Beck, OISA readers, Mike Allen, Matt Bartel, Denis Griesmer (who also directed Script Mill), Charlotte Mann, Christine Panozzo, Adrienne Russ, Steve Smith, and Dave Vidovich, OISA finalist Tim Tyler, journalists Charles Cassady (The Cleveland Free Times, The Lorain Morning Journal) and Tim Piai (cleveland.citysearch.com), film professionals Kate Amer, Jim Gelarden, and Scott Swank, and Greater Cleveland Media Development Vice President Trish Lynch. After Script Mill, the OISA readers enjoyed a reception sponsored by Grumpy's Café and Bakery in Tremont.

Today, we welcome the Screen Actors Guild angel Kit Woods as a part of our Independent Film School, and filmmakers, Thomas Baumann (Bottom Feeders), Olga and Loren Kruse ("Already Met"), Bill Hoffman, Randall and Kathy Brown ("Even You"), Mark Evans ("Goodnight Miss July"), Josh Wick ("Crossroads"). Also today, our audience will be treated to the premiere "Something for Everyone," a short film which will start every program this festival. "Something for Everyone" was shot last year in conjunction with our acclaimed Film Production Training Program (in collaboration last year with Greater Cleveland Media Development Corporation).
