Two years ago, my colleagues and I made a promo film to help raise money when the Chatham Film Club sought to purchase the Crandell theatre in Chatham, NY. Built in 1926, the Crandell is the only single-screen, classic movie theater in Columiba County, and it is home to the FilmColumbia Film Festival, which will host its 12th year this October. Now that the film club owns and operates the Crandell, they continue to raise money for maintenance and upgrades to the facility, including the inadequate Ladies restroom.
Local resident and film star, Parker Posey volunteered her improvisational skills to create this little piece I shot with Nick Lagonia a few weeks ago.
Below that is the original piece I did during the original capital campaign.
