Sundial Film Festival

Tuesday, November 18, 2014


We have entered Trona in several film festivals and are now in the wait and see period.   The notifications will begin to trickle in between the months of January and May.  Of course we will keep you posted when any good news arrives.  We are excited to share the film with everyone online, but due to the submission guidelines for many of the festivals, we must wait until after they have passed. We will then do a public release of the film online at that time.  Thanks so much for your patience and support.  Wishing everyone an amazing Thanksgiving next week with family and friends.

Trona's Origins

This particular story idea was born from a book I read a few years ago. It was a fictionalized account based on a real situation, when a person was stranded out in the desert during the summer. He was 23 miles away from civilization without any water, and decided to hike in. Through the course of the book he went through the different phases of heat exhaustion, drifting in and out of consciousness, while having conversations with himself. Faced with the real possibility that he would not survive, there was this need for him to say certain things; to achieve a sense of closure. 

I thought it would be interesting to explore this theme, but instead of putting one character alone in this situation, we put two people out there. Two brothers, who once were very close, but have lost contact over the last few years. If they were faced by the possibility of not surviving these extreme conditions, what would be said? What truly matters? This is the story of Trona.
