Keith Benman of Watertown’s Ch7 News put together a piece on Ogdensburg. “Zburg is really about building community.” He said, accurately. I showed him around the sets and locations used in the web series. He liked Phillps, our iconic diner in the center of town.
It was a big week for our web series. Submitted as a short film with episodes 1-3. We were selected for virtual screening in the Great Lakes Film Festival held later in September in Erie, PA, and also as Semi Finalist in the BEST SHORT FEST held in Toronto, ON.
I screened the series at the Ogdensburg Boys and Girls Club last night for some prospective young storytellers. Teens are responding to the material and might be our best audience yet.
