Nightbeats Behind the Scene Video, the Sacramento Film and Music Festival, and Paper Hearts Trailer

Awhile back, I had the opportunity to  see Sacramento filmmaker Mike Carroll shoot a scene from his feature Nightbeats.  I was a fan of his feature Year, so I jumped at the chance to shoot a small amount of behind the scenes footage, which is included in the video above.

Mike is unique in that he does one man, no-budget filmmaking; he writes, directs, produces, lights, and edits his films.  He also gives workshops on his process, and has plans for a book.  Obviously, he must be doing something right because Nightbeats was accepted into the Sacramento Film and Music Festival

The festival runs from July 24- August 2, and although the schedule of films for the festival has not been posted yet, from what I’ve heard, there should be a lot of really good films this year, including the Sundance award winning mockumentary, Paper Hearts, starring Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera (Arrested Development, Super Bad, Year One).  See the trailer below. 

Also, I heard that the festival is looking for volunteers, so if you are into film and are interested, you can contact them on their website.
