See Long Goodbye at the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival on June 10

I am thrilled to announce that "Long Goodbye" has been selected in the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival (AoBFF) and is closing the festival with a bang on June 10.

This is a special one for us because AoBFF is the only international, independent festival in the world devoted to Brooklyn’s vibrant film and media scene, of which Long Goodbye is part of.

The film has strong connections to the borough: I finished the script for Long Goodbye while living in Brooklyn, pulled together a predominantly Brooklyn-based cast and crew, and shot the film in and around the borough at some of my favorite spots such as The Anchored Inn, Molasses Bookstore, Mirror Tea House, and Angry Wades.

About Long Goodbye

With Brooklyn as the backdrop, “Long Goodbye” tells the story of Avery and Matthew. Two strangers who find comfort in a fantasy relationship with each other. Too deep in their delusion to talk to one another, they both struggle to realize relationships with other people, only to find that reality can’t overcome the fantasy. When reality and fantasy collide, they are both forced to confront their demons. This is a modern coming of age story about two people learning how to grow up, long after adulthood. Watch the trailer online here.

P.S. Did you hear we RECENTLY won three awards?

In case you missed it, not long ago, Long Goodbye screened at the Red Dirt International Film Festival and won three festival awards including, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Editing.

See you in Brooklyn!

Chris started El Raven Productions in 2013 after years of perfecting his craft as a production freelancer throughout the northeast United States. With vast experience in everything from reality television to commercial production to internal coroporate communications, his visual style can be described as organic and balanced, with a keen sense of storytelling that brings out the highest level of authenticity in his work. A seasoned cinematographer and artist with over 10 years of professional experience in film, video, and still photography, Chris now lives with his wife Mackenzie in Brooklyn, where he likes to write and work on fine art photography in his spare time. You may have seen his work at one of his gallery shows or run into him out and about while polishing his still photography skills. Either way, he was probably carrying a camera because he loves what he does and feels extremely lucky to be doing it for a living.
