L to R: Scott Hellon (Filmmaker - Point of View Pictures), Brian McLaughlin (Producer, Actor - Good Boy),
Bart Santello (Filmmaker - Psychotropic Films), and Patrick Roddy (Director - Good Boy)

Tonight Patrick Roddy's "Good Boy" screened at the 2009 Arizona International Film Festival.
This eclectic new feature film by Patrick was well received. The house was packed by a partisan Tucson filmmaking crowd.

In the film's story, a young man sets off west to start a new life, but on the back roads of Louisiana, he doesn't get too far.

Arizona International Film Festival

Bart Santello and Psychotropic Films announce that Controlled Bleeding - A Nation's Nightmare, selected for this year's Arizona International Film Festival; will show at 8:00pm Wednesday April 22nd at the screening Room (127 East Congress, Tucson).

Controlled Bleeding is a film about addiction and dreams turned to nightmares. In the case of this film, I chose 'oil' as the addiction. Dependency envokes all the epic human struggles: David vs Golith, man vs machine, nature vs technology. These are the themes I routinely work with in digital. Controlled Bleeding presents my perception of recent history; with the resulting chaos, a familiar consequence of addiction.
