Could it be the best, could it be? Really be, really, babe?

First, just to be clear, the title of this post rhymes. Australians pronounce “Brisbane” to rhyme with ten, or just swallow the last vowel altogether: BRIZ-b’n.

Lexington Blue won the Best Screenwriting Award at tonight’s Atlanta International Film Festival. The evening featured a red carpet meet-and-greet, ten short films from around the world, and an intermission show with performer Ray Rush. Many thanks to festival organizer Unique Wright for putting together this successful event.
Note to Mordechai and Hunny-J: Lexington Blue is the first screenplay for which I wrote the songs, and one of my influences was the Allman Brothers Band. So it was with sadness that we learned earlier today of the death of Gregg Allman.
June Update: In order to avoid some confusion with the Atlanta Film Festival (ATLFF), the AIFF recently changed its name to the Atlanta Award-Qualifying Film Festival (AAQFF).
