Dinner at the Lake- Narrative Short
Wisconsin- Minnesota Showcase
Directed By Louie Fisher and Griffin Larson
A project of the Flyway Film Festival in Pepin, Wisconsin, created by residents of Lake Pepin's east coast.
Along the Wisconsin shore of Lake Pepin, residents are preparing for a special feast. Farmers, mushroom hunters, cooks, and tradesmen together create a banquet on a fishing pier stretching far out into the lake, while children grow antsy--and a bit nervous--awaiting the arrival of a mysterious guest. Who is this legendary figure, and will he really come? Mary Logue's ominous tale comes to life in Flyway Film Festival's first-ever community film.
Journey to Planet X- Documentary Feature
Directed by Myles Kane and Josh Koury
Eric Swain and Troy Bernier are scientists by day and amateur filmmakers by night. Over the years these two friends have turned out many of their own amateur, sci-fi inspired movies. Journey to Planet X follows the filming of Planet X, the duo’s most ambitious endeavor to date, and sheds light on their unique brand of “movie magic.”
While Troy views Planet X as an opportunity to launch a career in the movie-industry, Eric is content with making films as a playful and creative hobby. Troy’s bold new aspirations greatly exceed anything they’ve accomplished in previous films and the pressure of raising the bar forces both to take a leap of faith. They recruit the involvement of everyone they can find – from their own family members, to co-workers, and local aspiring actors. They shoot on sand dunes, highway overpasses, and inside an industrial-sized freezer at a local supermarket. Together with their cast and crew, they form an unlikely community of like-minded adventurers.
Eric and Troy are inspired by the transcendent nature of moviemaking itself, where the fantasies of being space travelers, charming leading men, and even successful filmmakers, all seem quite possible. Our documentary captures their struggle to realize their filmmaking dream.
