“It Came From Dallas – Behind the 8-Ball” is Dallas Producers Association’s eighth annual celebration of Texas filmmaking and filmmakers. Our Presenting Sponsor is Replicopy and the show will be held Thursday February 21, 2013 at Studio Movie Grill – Dallas. The event is free to the public – though we do ask for a donation as this show is DPA’s fundraiser to support Texas Motion Picture Alliance an organization devoted to bringing production jobs to our area.
We have a variety of local filmmaking professionals and celebrities introducing clips from films made in DFW and across Texas throughout the years and they’ll each have a “behind-the-scenes” story about their experiences working on films such as David Byrne’s TRUE STORIES, Horton Foote’s 1918, PRIMER, THE ANT BULLY, BONNIE & CLYDE, OFFICE SPACE, THE ALAMO, URBAN COWBOY plus locally produced television shows like WALKER TEXAS RANGER and WISHBONE as well as documentary and corporate films.
Film historian Gordon K. Smith will be back with “Gordon’s Vault”, a collection of fun trailers and clips from cult classic and lesser known films made in the Dallas area or around the state of Texas such as COMMON LAW WIFE, FREE WHITE & 21, THE KIDNAPPERS FOIL, DUNGEON OF HARROW, Gary Kent’s THE PYRAMID, THE SWARM!, MANOS THE HANDS OF FATE, HANGAR 18 and PRISON-A-GO-GO! Plus segments from DFW’s rich animation history.
We’ll also present DPA’s Pioneer Award to two extraordinary Texas filmmakers, Cynthia Mondell-Salzman and Allen Mondell of Media Projects, and we’ll top off the evening with a variety of wonderful raffle prizes including an iPad mini. You won’t want to miss this show!
