Aidan is a short film, filmed entirely in Tacoma and University Place in the fall of 2021. I wrote the script in early 2020 and worked over the next 18 months revising and refining it and planning for production. After reaching out to local filmmakers I was able to put together a team of professionals from across all disciplines to make a very high quality short film.
The original script is much longer but because of budget constraints it made more sense to produce a short version in hopes of securing more funding. Production was complete in late December 2021 and through a private screening and fundraising event I was able to raise enough funds to submit the short to 75 film festivals across the country. It has already screened at multiple festivals, such as Indianapolis’ GenCon and Seattle’s Folklife Film Festival. As fall arrives, “Aidan” has been programmed into even more local film festivals. Please consider attending a film festival in your area and support local filmmakers like me.
You can watch the short at:
- Tacoma Film Festival, Tacoma
- Zion Film Festival, Tacoma
- Local Sightings Film Festival, Seattle
- Poulsbo Film Festival, Poulsbo
The film also includes songs from local musical artists including:
- Alia Haro
- La Fonda
- The Migraine Aura
