Little Fish Seeks Big Pond

Just saw this article on Reel Chicago, (CLICK HERE TO READ), Ruth Ratny interviews filmmaker Ky Dickens (Fish Out of Water). The article discusses Ky’s motives behind this thought provoking film about homosexuality and religion, the unusual though refreshingly unique use of animation throughout the film and the equally unusual way Ky chose to finance her film… by cashing in her IRA!

Ky even gives Foundation a shout out, as she cites that Anna Patel on-lined and assisted with some creative editing, also cutting the trailer. We’ve hugely supported this film from the moment Ky walked through our door! It’s a wonderful message and brilliantly executed. If you haven’t seen the trailer, please check out the link above!

If you want to see the film, it will be playing at the 28th Reeling: Chicago Lesbian & Gay International Film Festival through Nov. 15.

Time Out Chicago Supports Fish Out… of Water

This week, Time Out Chicago published an article, as part of their “Things to Do” section, promoting the documentary “Fish Out of Water” by writer/director Ky Dickens.  Our own Anna Patel not only cut the trailer for this bold film but she also onlined, color corrected and provided additional editing to the ending of the film!
