Pics of Tom McCarthy, Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, Alex Shaffer Q&A at “Win Win” SXSW 2011
On Monday, March 14, 2011, I attended a gala screening of Win Win at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. The event took place in the stunning 1200-seat Paramount Theatre, built in 1915. The film was featured in the Headliners section.
Directing from his own script, this sweet little American indie is the third feature for Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor). The movie stars Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, Bobby Cannavale, Jeffrey Tambor, and real-life New Jersey State Champion high school wrestler Alex Shaffer as Kyle.
Writer/director Tom McCarthy was joined onstage after the screening for a Q&A with his cast and crew, including stars Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, and Alex Shaffer, along with co-writer Joe Tiboni.
I also participated in audio interviews with McCarthy, Giamatti, Ryan, and Shaffer.
For 20 years I was a professional in the entertainment industry, from commercial broadcast radio in America's fourth largest market to band management to record production. But my passion is independent film, and I spend much of the year traveling to film festivals to see indies and meet the actors, directors, and others responsible for creating them. I'm a writer, photographer, and videographer, currently serving as Senior Vice President for Media & Technology and Public Relations at PROnetworks as well as Editor at Larry411.com
