Long time lurker, sometime poster would like Cinematography.com users in the LA area to know about and attend the screening of a feature I shot. Here's the text from a press release...

On November 20 at 3pm, the independant feature film “For Love of Amy” will be screened at the Directors Guild Theatre in Los Angeles. The DGA Theatre Complex is located in the Guild's National Headquarters located at 7920 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, California.

“For Love of Amy” is the story of a black man (Michael Daye) who promises his dying friend that he’ll look after his wife and dying child (Amy), who is white. As fate would have it, the mother becomes incapacitated and he finds himself solely responsible for Amy’s care. When her family objects because he is black and his new fiance’ gives him an ultimatum, he is faced with the decision to honor his promise or give into the pressure around him.

Vincent Alston wrote the screenplay and produced the film. Veteran actor, director and DGA member Ted Lange directed the film. Richard R. Robbins of Omaha was Director of Photography. The film was shot in and around Omaha, Ne. An all Omaha crew was utilized.

Cast members include a mix of nationally known and Omaha-based actors. Alston plays a primary role, as the best friend of Amy’s father. Other cast members include Joyce Sylvester (“Clockin’ Green,” “Right to Remain Silent,” “Ellen”), Lindsay Seim (“California Dreamin’,” “The Sunday Man”) and Tyrone Beasley. John Beasley, star of “Everwood” and most recently appearing in Tyler Perry’s, “Daddy’s Little Girl”, also appears in the movie. Omaha actor Grace Bydalek plays Amy.

Executive Producers are Sho Raiker and Sofija Novakovic.
