SXSW: Who To Watch

SXSW IS FINALLY HERE!!!! If you’re lucky enough to be attending this year, you MUST check out the free screening of this AMAZING film.

“The Other Dave” tells the story of David Manning, whose life was changed the day he was struck by lightning. Now fully disabled, the story centers on the changes in Dave after the lightning strike.

Dave Manning was able to creatively tell his story through the collabrotive efforts of a team of very talented young men. Specifically, Pasquale Greco (Director/Executive Producer), Travis Gorzelsky (Producer/Music) , Nick DeGrazia (Producer/Editor) , Michael Phillips (Producer), Lance Becker (Cinematographer) and Joshua Dunlap (Animation Artist).

Seeing that it’s Emerging Artists month here at Buzznet, I thought it was appropriate to give proper credit to the emerging artists behind the making of the film.

A graduate of Point Park University‘s Cinema and Digital Arts department in Pittsburgh, Pasquale Greco works primarily in visual effects for feature films in New York. He met David Manning on a family vacation and decided his story, whatever it was, needed to be told.

Life changes people; especially when it involves 1 billion volts of electricity. “Super Dave” Manning, was on his way to a pro golf career when lightning struck and permanently changed his perception of reality.

“The Other Dave” is an official selection of the SXSW Film Festival. For more info click here.
