“Stills” Red Carpet Movie Premiere Creates a Stir

The locally produced movie, “Stills,” premiered on Sunday, January 22nd, at Beacon Cinemas. Many local dignitaries and members of the Live Oak Theatre community came out to view the film. What they saw on Sunday evening was two years in the making and a true community effort.

The film was created by Root and Branch films and Odd!Life studios. These are two local film production companies. The actors and crew were also local talent. Many area businesses and leaders pitched in to assist in the making of the film. Kyle Marra, Director / Producer for Root And Branch Films, spoke about how the growing local art scene had enabled them to make this movie, as well as the considerable contributions of local businesses and organizations.

The premiere event came together in a short time. It was basically put together in a month. Beacon Cinemas graciously provided a theater for the viewing. Marra said, “I’d like to publicly thank Florida’s Adventure Coast, The Spotted Narwhal, St. Luke Heart Institute, Live Oak Theatre, and Monocle Design Solutions for helping us to put together such a special event!”

All of the premiere attendees created a buzz at the theater. High school students walking by were intrigued by what was happening. They were trying to comprehend why there was a long line of dressed-up people at the movie theater. We overheard them excitedly discussing what could be drawing such a crowd. One of the students noticed that Mr. (Trevor) Barlow was there taking pictures on a red carpet. I am sure Mr. Barlow fielded a lot of questions about the event on Monday at Nature Coast Technical High School.

The team wanted to make a high-quality 30-minute film. Eventually, they plan to make a full-length feature film, and this movie proves that it is entirely within their reach. They captured the audience’s attention with a highly compelling storyline, excellent cinematography depicting Brooksville locales, and attention to detail. “Stills” has already won several awards.
