What are the Odds?

Posted on: December 1st, 2010 by wmapother 4 Comments

Life, the universe and everything is crazily random, as we know, and the movie business doesn’t straighten it out any.

Last autumn I shot Another Earth, a tiny indie drama.  We shot nearly all my scenes in mid-New York state, at an old, unheated country house  owned by the director’s friend, and the entire crew could almost fit around a table at McDonald’s.

Cut to a bit over a year later.  The 2011 Sundance Film Festival just announced its line-up (here) for January…and Another Earth was accepted into the Dramatic Competition Category, in which only 16 films were selected from among 1,102 films submitted.

The NY Times reports on the trends in this year’s selections here, including this photo of Brit Marling and me, and USA Today has a piece on the line-up here.

The director, my fellow cast, the producers, the crew and the casting director are all here, and there isn’t earth enough and time to thank them.  But thank you.
