Call for Focus on Local Filmmakers and Performing Artists
March 28 - 30

Local feature film and television producer Robin Cowie, the newly appointed Creative Director for the Center, will produce a series of short films for the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center titled Focus On Local. Robin Cowie brings more than 20 years of entertainment experience to the project, having produced 7 feature films, including the smash hit The Blair Witch Project, 2 television series, and several theatre projects.

The short films will document the large variety of talented performing artists who call Central Florida home. Collaborators will work in teams of five, focusing on one particular artist and their story. The production will take place over one weekend: March 28 - 30.

The filmmakers will be paired with an artist on the Friday night, film them on Saturday, and edit the films on Sunday. The short films will then premier at the Orange County Library in downtown Orlando mid April in front of the volunteer core supporters for the Dr. Phillips Center known as The Circle. As well, the films will be shared online through all of the Dr. Phillips Center social channels. Footage from the films will also be a part of a special film called Arts For Every Life, which will premier at the Orlando Film Festival in October 2014.
