According to Tara Westwood, one of the stars and a co-producer:
"Hudson Falls", was the first pilot production shot during Covid. The cast and crew members faced a variety of challenges and issues as they cooperated with the Screen Actors Guild developing breakthrough standards to keep everyone safe. At the Strand Theatre panel I am the actors and Elias Plagianos will be forthcoming about what these concerns were---which had a traumatic impact on tens of thousands of people who earn their livelihoods in this sector for the past eighteen months (everyone from stagehands, to musicians, to makeup artists, to lighting engineers, to actors), in large measure unable to work.
As Elias Plagianos describes: The actors and creative team demonstrated their passion and commitment to practicing their craft during this distressed period. Im looking forward to sharing stories about how instead of being overwhelmed by the obstacles of working safely on set during Covid with no crew, being socially distanced, and communicating through face masks we treated it as an opportunity to use the confines as an evolving experiment. We used an innovative camera produced by Canon which was easy to use with no additional crew members, and had a very intimate set where actors had the freedom to give very organic performances.
Meanwhile, "Hudson Falls" has all of today's hot buttons: LGBTQ, divorce, genetics, tech spying, and more. "Hudson Falls" has been chosen as an award finalist at the upcoming, SeriesFest, which is being held in Denver from June 24-July 11, where everyone can watch virtual.
"Hudson Falls" is a winner of the New York International Screenplay Awards (see below).
Hudson Falls has been named an Official Selection of the prestigious LA Shorts International Film Festival and is featured prominently on their website. https://www.lashortsfest.com/
(The LA Shorts International Film Festival ranks among the most respected and largest international short film festivals in the world.)
"Hudson Falls" will be seen on Amazon Prime.
Hudson Falls Trailer:
Leading into the Hudson Falls screening will be another Elias Plagianos television pilot in development, the first episode of, Distemper, starring Abigail Hawk, a long-time cast regular from the CBS Television Network hit, Blue Bloods. (Ms. Hawk hopes to attend if she is able, given the demands of her shooting production schedule with, Blue Bloods.)
Distemper, is a production funded by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Elias Plagianos explains that: The show, which takes place in 1918, could not possibly be more relevant to the health and social crises we are dealing with today. The story tackles all the difficult ethical and moral questions scientists are confronted with when attempting to prevent a pandemic. In the case of sleeping sickness which was occurring in the Belgian Congo, Louise Pearce was tasked with traveling across the globe to find a cure. Our story finds her at the beginning of that journey. Louise, a lesbian scientist, must convince Noah Jansen, an African living in Belgium to allow her to help on his crusade to find a cure. On the surface they are two underdogs trying to change the way society treats them, but there are hidden dark agendas also at play that we hope to explore in a series or perhaps even a feature film version.
