The Silver Screen Roadshow
VCAM is excited to be airing local filmmaker David Metzger's new film, The Silver Screen Roadshow.
David's work recently premiered at the Main Street Landing theater in downtown Burlington, and the film has been profiled by radio shows like 99.3 WBTV-LP's Vermont Favorites and state-wide news publication Seven Days.
In their interview with David, Seven Days asked him what inspired him to write this film:
Eating at Snap's Restaurant in Bristol last New Year's Day, Metzger saw an unusual pair in a booth, he writes in an email: a well-dressed twentysomething and "a little girl who was wearing her pajamas." Those "two disparate people" inspired "a movie about two sisters reconnecting."
A second inspiration came from a friend who told Metzger, "The next film project I do, I need to open up my heart and put that on screen," he writes. "That it needs to be personal. That led to the idea of the main character searching for a movie theater with a working film projector, and that it was going to be about my crazy love of movies, classic cinema and filmmaking."
The Silver Screen Roadshow will air for a month on channels 15 and 215 during the following times:
- Mondays @ 4:00 p.m.
- Thursdays @ 9:30 p.m.
