Rodwan Productions is truly excited that Imperfect Armor will be screening at the 13th annual Indie Memphis Film Festival!  In 2009 Movie Maker Magazine named it one of the top 25 coolest festivals and I have to say they are right.   A Noiseless Patient Spider screened at Indie Memphis last year with Stingray Sam and I am So Proud of You.  We have never had more fun attending a festival.  The executive director, Erik Jambor, and the rest of the staff and volunteers did an amazing job.  One of our favorite aspects of the festival last year was arriving to the screenings early to be entertained by local musicians in the theater.  We can not wait to see what they have in store this year!

Dig Recording is a fabulous recording studio in downtown Portland.  On Monday, September 13th, the Rodwan Productions team met up with actress Cheri Stuller at the studio to record the voice over for Life.  The atmosphere is relaxing, with dim lighting and comfortable furnishing. The owner, Mark Kaeder, was welcoming with his professional manner and sly sense of humor.   In an hour we recorded 17 takes of the poem.  The big task ahead of me now is choosing which one to use.  Cheri worked hard on this project and really dove into the poem.   There are so many good takes from our session at Dig Recording.  Each one with its subtle differences but all fitting for the visuals.  Cheri’s dedication and talent are a true asset to the film.
