The Taos of Del Gatto

Los Angeles based director and photographer Ron Hamad’s film “The Wait” is a finalist in the Taos Film Festival. Editor, Jonathan Del Gatto executed the edit on this film, and we are very proud to be a part of the excitement.

If you haven’t seen it already, it can be viewed here.   “The Wait” is arrestingly beautiful and really showcases Hamad’s cinematic talents.   Jonathan’s edit  perfectly enhances the footage and helps tell the story.


Lights, Camera, Help!

Our short  in support of same sex marriage, “Marriage Equality” was selected out of 235 entries from all across the world to show in the 2010 Lights, Camera, Help Film Festival in Austin, Texas!! Tom Pastorelle edited this piece and it was shot by Ben Chappell. But virtually everyone at Foundation touched this film in some way and we’re all very proud to see it accepted to this festival! The piece was originally created for F.A.I.R. in support of abolishing Prop 8.

Early this year it was selected as one of three finalists by the E-Hero Awards selection committee for the 2010 Human Rights Campaign Gala in Los Angeles. The Gala featured U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, as well as actresses Portia DeRossi and Kathy Griffin, who received the Ally for Equality Award.

The festival takes place July 29th – 31st and Foundation L.A.’s Stacy Paris and Anna Patel will be attending the event on our behalf to conduct the Q&A after it screens.

We are proud to have been given the opportunity to contribute to the cause and thrilled that our piece has been selected for this prestigious event!

A Nephilim Grieves Its Way to Another Film Fest!

You may remember a while back when Anna Patel directed an intriguing short based on the poem “A Nephilim Grieves” by Vignette-Noelle Lammott. It was shown during the homegrown shorts segment of the Chicago International Film Festival last year. Well, the film has been accepted to yet another fest! This time, the First Annual Advertising Community Shorts Night, which is presented by The Midwest Independent Film Festival and AICP Midwest!

We are all very excited to see the film get more exposure and hope you’ll all come out to support our girls and other filmmakers of the Midwest!

Come check it all out at Landmark’s Century Centre Cinema, 2828 North Clark, on Tuesday, October 6th!! Doors open at 6 pm with a pre-show cocktail reception, film program begins at 7:30 pm sharp and is followed by their ever-popular after-party.  For full details:! See you there!

Zoran SAW It First!

Literally…kind of…

Two years ago, our dear assistant Zoran Gvojic created this lil’ spoof on the SAW movies and created SAW 4…which had not come out yet. View it below like the 6 million people before you! (btw, my favorite part is at the very very end so make sure you watch the whole way through!)

Now let me ask you this… which do you prefer? Zoran’s or the Lion’s Gate Films “version”…see…what I did there? I didn’t say “original” b/c it’s not!


For more fun parodies and commentary from Zoran anf friends check out his website:
