The Dreamland Theater was a cozy spot on a First Fridays July 8th, full of friends, families and film goers who piled in for sampling of locally grown independent films.
Filmmakers Adam Wright—an YPSI 24 veteran contestant—Steven Weed, Vladimir Leshchenko, and fellow crew mates, many of whom were also frequent YPSI 24 participants, joined the crowd to speak about their short films and career plans afterwards. Adam and Vlad are both prolific filmmakers and frequent collaborators whose work can be found at their respective Vimeo channels. Steven is a Detroit based actor and model who in addition to acting, is looking to find his voice and vision behind the camera.
The first of its kind, the event was well met with a packed house, lots of questions from a rapt audience, and a welcome sense of community. We thank everyone for coming out, and please stay tuned for more YPSI 24 Presents events on the horizon!
