We are SO PROUD to have been selected to represent Columbus on an INTERNATIONAL stage with Aidan 5…and then to be selected in the TOP THREE “Best Picture” category is just beyond comprehension- Our director, John Jackson is just completely in SHOCK right now, and to have Columbus mentioned among those large, international cities was good representation for ALL of us local creative folks. He said the quality of the films exhibited was AMAZING- and Ben Bays-director of "The Horseman" (who went with Johnny down to Miami) said that they were better than anything he had ever seen at the LA international film festival when he lived out there…which made having Aidan 5 selected by the judges to be in the top three even more exciting. They both said that the encouragement they got from teams from around the globe was great, and that their biggest support came from the team that won New Mexico who were blown away by the innovative approach to Aidan 5, he said they cheered them on when they were announced. They also got an opportunity to attend workshops and seminars with industry folks from places like HBO and others on how to sell and market your film into existing pipelines, etc...
I would like to take this opportunity to announce that AIDAN 5 is being developed into an online web series, comic, and interactive experience- The new AIDAN5 website promoting the web series has been launched at www.aidan5.com
