Have Some Heart with the “I Heart U” Screening
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Sun Mar 16 2014 10:00 AM ]
When he’s not busy coming up with new ways to insult the latest Tyler Perry movie, Alibi film editor Devin D. O’Leary (that’s me, talking in pretentious third person) actually spends the occasional weekend working on local independent films. His latest effort is the romantic horror-comedy I Heart U, for which he provided the screenplay (and did some acting). That film has just been released on DVD nationwide by Camp Motion Pictures. To celebrate, the filmmakers will be hosting a special DVD release party at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway SE) on Sunday, March 16. A free screening of the film will start at 7pm. Cast and crew will participate in a post-film Q&A. DVDs will be for sale in the lobby if you’re interested. In the meantime check out the film’s trailer, which will give you a bit of the film’s schizophrenic flavor.

Drunk In a Movie Theater? Great Idea!
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Sun Aug 5 2012 10:00 AM ]
What are you doing on this fine Sunday afternoon? In the mood for some heavy drinking? Not as a participant, mind you, but as an amused observer? Head on over to The Box Performance Space for the world premiere screening of the feature-length comedy Drunk. The movie, directed by Phillip Hughes and written by Scott Bryan, features a whole host of Albuquerque actors including Daniel T. Cornish, Rebekah Wiggins, Jenn Daugherty, Jason Witter and Ryan Jason Cook. It was lensed in and around our fair city in 2011 and will be hitting film festivals at the end of the summer. The screening is free, but it’s also a fundraiser—so, if you wanna help out by sponsoring the film at an upcoming festival, there will be a donation pot to help get Drunk up and out on the road. Cast and crew will be around for the screenings at 3 and 5 p.m. Seating is limited, so you might want to shoot an RSVP over to the film’s Facebook page.

Premiere is Trouble
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Fri Feb 19 2010 4:52 PM ]
Tonight is the world premiere screening of the locally shot feature comedy In Trouble. The film is directed by Chris L. Dillon (who gave us takes us the 2004 crime drama Cross). In Trouble takes us through the course of one troublesome day in the life of four friends. Bishop, Cotton, Zero and Renn (Robert Paul Medrano, Dillon, Josh Center, Jaime Reynoso) are on the verge of realizing just how monumentally screwed up they all are. Each, in his own brilliant way, has committed a grave offense against the law, society and maybe even God. Now, they've got just 24 hours to weasel their way out of the titular condition. The film will screen at 10:45 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 19, and Saturday, Feb. 20, at the Guild Cinema. Cast and crew will be in attendance. For now, feel free to observe the trailer.
