Ceremony - LAIFFA 2018 : For your Birthday was one on the winner
Par Steph, Los Angeles, Raleigh Studios, le 25 août 2018
Two years ago, Rachael Wotherspoon came up with her web series project named For Your Birthday. The story is about adult siblings of a dysfunctional family that are forced to come together in tradition at their mother's request and connect with each other as a family.
We filmed the 4 episodes on a weekend in Rachael’s apartment in Beverly Hills with a team of 15 people, cast and crew.
For Your Birthday won best Web Series/ New Media at LAIFFA (the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival Awards) and I, as first assistant-director, attended the ceremony with a part of the cast and crew.
LAIFFA awarded many other filmmakers from all over the world (Spain, Argentina etc.) and contributes to give independent films the exposure they deserve.
For Your Birthday is the tale of a dysfunctional family brought (forced) together in tradition at their mother's request, who must re-connect with each other as a family - without first killing each other. Can't live with 'em...
