Emerging Filmmaker debuts “The Burtons”

13 Jan

 It’s always great to see young, up and coming filmmakers doing their thing.  Last night I attended the thesis film screening of Brooklyn College student Vanessa Bateau.  The Burtons, starring actors Ryan Moore, Malkia Stampley and Alex Mulzac (who also performed in the script reading of BABY OF THE FAMILY) is a narrative short film about an infertile couple who approach a family member for help.

Written and directed by Bateau, and produced by Incifer Candir and Niaz Mosharraf, The Burtons had terrific acting, strong production values and a compelling story line. It’s all the more impressive that Bateau – who until this piece had done documentaries – debuted The Burtons as her first narrative film.

 Keep up the good work!
