The Big Not-So-Easy

Feb 27, 2009

Criterion’s own Danny Walton was featured in his hometown Times-Picayune for a film he recently shot on location in the New Orleans area, his thesis project for the School of Visual Arts, here in New York City. It was a personal project all around, shot on numerous locations in and around the city—including his former high school—and featuring Danny’s sister in the starring role. He was able to be so ambitious in part because of local help, which the article proudly highlights, as well as recounting the trials Danny went through in the months preceding the shoot. It’s quite a story, and we here at Criterion are very proud of him as well!
