The Other Kids is a bold hybrid of fiction and non-fiction in which real teens collaborated with the filmmaker to tell their own gripping, personal stories. Real kids are telling their real stories and they are woven into a riveting 94 minutes.

In this Crabcake, we spoke with producer Chris Brown on a really crappy connection that I did not realize until after we were done–sorry. The story of this film’s concept is unique in that it is the story of real-life teens acted by the very same real-life teens. Angst, anger, resentment, stress, it all comes out in a story that will span all ages–despite being written by teens.

SUPERGIRL follows 11-year-old powerlifter Naomi Kutin’s unique coming-of-age story as she fights to hold on to her title while navigating the perils of adolescence — from strict religious obligations to cyber-bullying. With a passionate family supporting her each step of the way, Naomi must learn to accept herself and discover she is as strong inside as she is outside.

In this Crabcake, we hopped on the phone with Jessie Auritt who wrote, directed and produced the film. Jessie tells us about how she decided on creating this story along with how she embedded herself in the lives of the Kutins in New Jersey. She followed Naomi for several years and sheds some insight on what the teen is up to today and what the future holds!

ANNAPOLIS FILM FESTIVAL | BEFORE THE WEST COAST

A federal court ruling in 1967 brought all-black St. Augustine High School into Louisiana’s all-white Catholic high school sports association. Newly appointed Head Football Coach Otis Washington would face relentless adversity in the years that followed — a playoff berth lost on a coin toss, discriminatory officiating, unfavorable rulings from the school board, and a championship game defeat — while cultivating an innovative offensive style of play still used today.

In this Crabcake, we hopped on the phone with Oyd Craddock who wrote, directed and produced the film. Oyd also played on that magical team that won the championship in 1975.  We talk about the film and what made him decide to tell this story. We discuss the racial biases and attacks endured..and the determination shown by a coach and a team.

Three inept night watchmen, aided by a young rookie and a fearless tabloid journalist, fight an epic battle for their lives against a horde of hungry vampires.

In this Crabcake, we met with Ken Arnold at Zu Coffee in Annapolis. He is a local man who wrote and produced the film. We discussed the film itself, what the future holds for him, and what it was like to film most of it right here in Annapolis in the old Capital newspaper building.
