KNIFE in Sarasota

I’ve been so taken with all the exciting stuff happening for PIONEER I’ve been remiss in my KNIFE reporting.

I’m very happy and excited to announce that the film is done (mostly) and will be having it’s worldwide premier at Sarasota Film Festival.  Coincidentally, SFF is one of my favorite festivals!

This will be the first ever public screening of the film.  So far no non-film type people have laid eyes on it.  So I’m excited to see how this initial audience will take it.

We’ve already got a few more great festivals lined up and I will announce those when the time is right.

Also, a trailer is coming soon!

Receive Bacon

I finally got my short film Receive Bacon up online! Making this film was truly satisfying. Not only did it take me from SXSW to Switzerland and lots of place in between but it’s also the only comedy I’ve made. Hearing that instant feedback from audiences is great.

Receive Bacon from James M. Johnston on Vimeo.

You can also watch it on YouTube if you’re into that.
