Flyway Pubcast #2 – Mark DiConzo and Joe Schermann!

Super excited to be sitting down with Mark DiConzo and Joe Schermann from writer/director Gary King’s newest picture, a musical dramedy, How to Write a Joe Schermann Song. Gary was not able to make the fest this year, but being a huge fan of Mark DiConzo since 2009’s New York Lately I was really jazzed about getting to hang out with these guys over the weekend. You can hear the clink of beer bottles before the interview begins – welcome to Flyway!

What’s Up Lovely to Screen Next Friday in L.A.

As you might know, a few of us have been big fans of 2009’s New York Lately and we (I) have been highly anticipating screenwriter/director Gary King’s next effort, What’s Up Lovely. Well it looks like the wait is almost over for a few lucky folks out in Los Angeles next weekend.

If you’re in the area, I highly recommend checking out this newest venture from Mr. King (before me… grrr). The event is being held at the Downtown Independent at 8pm on Friday, May 14th. Make your way over there and catch Gary and star Jenn Dees as well as some other cast and crew. It’s only ten bucks and I guess there’s a big rooftop party afterwards. All the info on the event and the film itself can pretty much all be found right over here.

In the dead of night, a recently unemployed insomniac wanders the streets of New York discovering a city beyond her wildest imagination.
Luci loses her job and times are tougher than ever. Unable to sleep, she begins an after-hours journey embarking on a series of strange encounters as she wanders the dark metropolis. During one unforgettable night, Luci comes face to face with her innermost fears and desires as she tries to find her way back home.
Based on a concept by Jenn Dees and Gary King, WHAT’S UP LOVELY is a drama about the struggle to survive the city while battling the enemy within ourselves.
If you’e interested, and you should be,

I’ve been told the film sticks with several of King’s major influences (including Soderbergh, Wong Kar-Wai, Almodóvar) but is a little bit more Lynchian this time around. Whatever that means I can guarantee it piques our interests big time around here. Possibly gonna be some RowThree staff at the shin dig, so seek us out and buy us lots of cocktails.

What’s Up Lovely – Official Trailer!

After seeing Gary King’s New York Lately (our review) once again at the Flyway film festival earlier this fall, it solidified its spot somewhere on my annual top ten films of the year list (DVD should be released early 2010 I believe). So it’s without a doubt I’m really looking forward to King’s next project, What’s Up Lovely.

While we posted the teaser trailer back in May, it’s nice to see a full blown, proper preview released which just gives me that much more anticipation and excitement.

Matt and I got a chance to talk with the director at the film festival and we chatted privately a bit about this new picture. King himself makes no bones about his influences here. Evoking nuggets of style from the likes of directors such as PT Anderson and Wong Kar-Wai may appear obvious. But the dark style and esoteric points of the film (and shown more blatantly in this latest trailer than in the lighter teaser) are taken more from the David Lynch school of film making. As far as I’m concerned, these are nothing but positive points for this director and he’ll definitely be one to watch out for. And if you get the chance, pick up New York Lately when it’s released on DVD in a couple months. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Flyway Dispatch 3 – Gary King and “New York Lately”

Director Gary King has had a really nice relationship with us in the third row over the past year or so. With the release of his latest film, New York Lately, we were instant fans of this warm and humorous film about twenty-somethings finding their way in the bustling waters of New York City. So we’re pretty excited about his almost completed, upcoming project, What’s Up Lovely. Getting a chance to talk with Gary was a treat and we’re looking forward to more of his work in the future… including a zombie movie!?

What’s Up Lovely Teaser Trailer

Both John and I had nothing but huge praise for Gary King’s New York Lately a couple of months back. And as promised, his next film is on the way which showcases some of the acting talent of his first film, but also one of the greatest cities in the world, New York.

So we got word of the trailer hitting the web today and I gotta say, once again I’m pretty impressed. It looks like my gut reaction was right as the aesthetic quality of this trailer gives off sort of an unpolished My Blueberry Nights vibe. And I don’t use the word “unpolished” in a bad way; far from it. In fact I like the raw realism of a “bright lights, big city” feel to the story that although gives a sense of cold and loneliness in the trailer, it still has warmth and heart at the same time.

Stay on top of this production over at the film’s website. Or stay tuned to RowThree as I’m sure we’ll remain in the loop and follow this one quite closely. I truly love good indie fare when I see it. And so far these films are straight up my alley.
