Jim Breuers Award-Winning Documentary to Premiere on Current TV
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 05, 2012
"More Than Me", co-produced by Pilotfish Productions and Lazy Eyes Productions, chronicles Breuers experiences as the primary caretaker of his 84-year-old father while on the road for a cross-country comedy tour. I knew he needed to get out of the house I knew this would give him so much life, Breuer says in the film referring to his father.
More Than Me director, Emmy® Award-winning William Philbin, whos also a partner at the popular sketch comedy group Daily Fiber Films, is no stranger to working with comedians. But it was his experience directing aging-related projects that made him uniquely qualified to strike the delicate balance between the films comedic moments and its emotional core. We were dealing with some complicated issues, Philbin said. But when you boil it down, its really a father-son story.
Shot in 2008, More Than Me has since made the rounds on the festival circuit, including a screening at the inaugural ArcLight Documentary Film Festival in Hollywood in 2011 and a Best Documentary award at the United Film Festival-New York earlier this year. Its taken us four years to get to this point, said producer Zac Greenbaum, so its extremely gratifying to finally expose it to a larger audience.
