LRFF Launches "The Local Film Scene" Blog with David Fowlkes
There is a change happening in the Natural State. No longer are films being made by a few. The army is growing, the film count is rising, and the quality of films is skyrocketing.
Film is different than many other visual arts. While certainly possible to make alone, a film is most often approached with a team of people rather than taken on by one artist. With so many moving parts it is a daunting task to try and tackle story, production, and post alone. Being the team sport that it is, I hope to report on those three stages of production as well as the many talented filmmakers that play a role in getting Arkansas films to the screen.
The Little Rock Film Festival has been a goal of many and a supporter of all Arkansas film makers since it’s debut in 2007. I have been honored to be a part of a film in every festival since it’s inception.

I hope to make this blog a place to report on films being shot in Arkansas small and large. To do this I will certainly need your help. If you have a project, film news, or any rumors on film you would like to mention email me at David@littlerockfilmfestival.org
Spring has sprung. Get writing, start shooting, and let us know!
