For those of you who have been wondering and asking if our strange little movie was ever going to see the light of day … we can finally reveal what has been brewing behind the scenes for several weeks now.
At long last, we are happy to announce that we are partnering with The Orchard for worldwide distribution of “Small Pond” on digital platforms. The deal was reached last month during the Sundance Film Festival by producer Kim Sherman on behalf of Tenhoursaweek LLC and Danielle DiGiacomo on behalf of The Orchard.
“Small Pond” made its world premiere at the 2011 Maryland Film Festival and went on to win the Programmers Award at the 2011 Sidewalk Film Festival before venturing out on a theatrical tour in 2012 that included a hometown premiere at Ragtag Cinema in Columbia, Missouri.
It’s amazing to consider that it’s been almost four years since we began pre-production on location in mid-Missouri and equally amazing to see what our talented cast and crew has been up to in the meantime.
Our lead actress Hari Leigh has joined the cast of Nickelodeon’s “Sanjay & Craig” and will next be seen in Todd Sklar’s “Awful Nice,” which is premiering at SXSW in March; Susan Burke served as the co-writer of James Ponsoldt’s “Smashed,” winner of a Special Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival; mega-multi-hyphenate Amy Seimetz wrote and directed the festival hit “Sun Don’t Shine” before becoming a series regular on both HBO’s “Family Tree” and AMC’s “The Killing”; Josh Fadem joined the cast of NBC’s dearly departed “30 Rock” as Liz Lemon’s hapless agent and will next be seen in Sony’s “The Kitchen Sink”; and living legend Ann Magnuson unveiled her music and dance revue “Ann Magnuson Does David Bowie” to sold out audiences in 2011.
