Festivus FF alum Nathaniel Eyde wraps “Freaky Deaky”
It seems like only yesterday that Nathaniel was here in Denver, dancing across the stage after his win for Best Short Short with Black Ops Arabesque. Nathaniel passed on the opportunity to premiere at SXSW and instead chose to have his World Premiere at Festivus FF. We were proud to play his film, and are very excited to hear about his new project that’s just recently wrapped production. It’s titled Freaky Deaky, based on a novel of the same name by Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty, Jackie Brown, 3:10 to Yuma, Justified.) Nathaniel is the Executive Producer of the film which stars Christian Slater, Crispin Porter, Michael Jai White, Andy Dick, and a whole host of other talented actors. Festivus alums are all over the place these days, and it was actually Matthew Kohnen (Festivus winner, see post below re: Aahh! Zombies!) that connected Nathaniel with the project! They recently finished production and are currently in post.The film is slated for release in 2012. For all the details check out the IMDB page. In addition, Nathaniel has just recently joined the Festivus Film Fest’s board of directors. His creative talents and business sense will be a huge benefit to the festival and we’re happy he’s now a part of the team. Keep fighting the good fight, Nathaniel!
