'Once Upon a Riot' Rough Cut Sizzler...
This 'Once Upon a Riot' rough cut sizzler was created in just hours prior to and for a special invitational event at Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles, California.
'From Under The Bridge' actors Piper Reese, Sara Wolfkind, Chris Cimperman and Ryon Thomas traveled to Royal Oak, Michigan with writer/director Paul James to attend the sold-out 'Royal Starr Film Festival' screening at the Emagine Theater on September 9th, 2022. On September 18th, Paul received a message from the festival team informing him the film had won the ultimate Grand Jury Award for 'Best Short Film'. With so many people in attendance, including many of Paul's Michigan friends, the screening, nomination and win were especially significant and special. The film has now won over 25 awards, including 7 'Best Film' awards.
