Passionate writer, producer and director of both film and theatre, Gemma Eva is among four local filmmakers to have their works featured on television tonight Mar. 10. After successful film festival screenings around the world: Gemma Eva (“Rough Love”), Ken Amlin (“Time Well Spent”), and David DeRose and Anthony Greco (“Kubric”) will present their works in the second episode of The Windsor/Essex Showcase.
“Rough Love” is a 1980’s B-movie parody about a young man in a “killer” new relationship. Written, produced and directed by Gemma Eva, the movie earned several nominations and awards around the film festival circuit including Best Screenplay (45th University of Windsor Film Festival), and Best Gore and Best Poster (Hollywood Blood Horror Festival).
Ken Amlin’s “Time Well Spent” highlights the idea that time spent focusing on helping others is always time well spent.
David DeRose and Anthony Greco’s “Kubric” features a young woman who must find her way out of a mysterious town before she fades into nonexistence.
The Windsor/Essex Showcase television series is a platform for local filmmakers and content creators to air their recent film projects. The premier episode aired last week, Mar. 3, featuring locally created short films “Stay”, “The Log Off”, “Balls!”, “Bringing strength and hope through storytelling”, and “Sparkwheel.”
The second episode of the Windsor/Essex Showcase can be viewed on UHF Channel: 30.2, Cogeco: 100, and Bell: 586, tonight, Mar. 10 at 8 pm. It will then be re-broadcasted on Mar. 12 at 11:30 pm.
