David Branin

Writer/Director David Branin grew up near Hartford, Connecticut.  Raised by a single deaf mother, he picked up her skill of observing and reading people.  It wasn't until his college career was almost over that the dream of making a major motion-picture burst into his head. David and three of his closest friends wrote an original screenplay together and moved to Los Angeles in 2000 to pursue their own Hollywood ending. His pursuit of that dream continues to this day.

He is the Director/Writer/Producer of Night Before the Wedding and Co-Host of Film Courage.

His work has been seen by millions online.  His short films, Shoot-Out and Honey, I'm Home have garnered the most acclaim, having combined to screen in over 40 international film festivals while winning their share of awards.

  KAREN WORDEN  
Karen Worden

Actress/Spokesperson Karen Worden co-hosts L.A. Talk Radio's "Film Courage".  At age 18, Karen drove herself and her belongings to Los Angeles from the San Francisco Bay Area to pursue her acting career.  As many an L.A. transplant will do, Karen worked several odd jobs to pay the rent.  Karen's had many interesting work experiences which have further flavored her character. 

Karen's style is earthy with a slight touch of fire (thanks to a combination of a sun in Pisces with a Sagittarius rising for all you astrology buffs), easygoing, intuitive and direct. In hosting the new Internet radio talk show, "Film Courage," Karen seeks to probe industry professionals on their quest for greater things.  Karen's in-depth questioning discovers how individuals overcome the naysayers, along with quieting the harshest of critics - oneself!  She questions industry professionals on their fear of success versus fear of failure, overcoming self-sabotage, and developing one's greatest strengths.

Karen's credits include Honey I'm Home, Road Therapy, Weekend Get Away, Religious Freaks Gone Wild, Mind Over Matter Man, Smoking - The Movie and the latest Night Before the Wedding.  Karen also wrote and starred in a one-woman play showcased at the Space Theatre entitled The Other Woman, as well as being featured in several commercials and print ads.  One of her favorite shoots was working with Richard Simmons on his Sweatin' to the Oldies series.

Film Courage Interactive Screening Series Ft. TILT & CERISE

The 22nd Film Courage Interactive with David Branin and Karen Worden features a test screening of TILT, directed by Phil Holbrook, co-written by screenwriting/filmmaking duo Julie Keck and Jessica King (a.k.a. King is a Fink), and shot by cinematographer Jeremy Doyle. TILT will screen on Monday, October 24, 2011 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. The night will also feature the short film CERISE by writer/director John T. Trigonis. Both Directors Phil Holbrook and John T. Trigonis are anticipated to be in attendance at this special one night event!

SYNOPSIS FOR TILT:

Paul hasn’t connected with his daughter for over 10 years, but when their world is turned upside down by an unthinkable act, he has to decide what’s more important: doing the right thing or setting things right. TILT is about revenge & forgiveness, betrayal & redemption, and second chances…small town style.

SYNOPSIS FOR CERISE:

Former National Spelling Bee champ is haunted by the word that took him down. The grammatical world of former six-time National Spelling Bee champ Josh Kermes is thrown into disarray when the director of the tutoring center he works for hires a new writing tutor, Shivam Shah, who also happens to be the person who won the spelling bee Josh had lost 20 years ago. Chaos and competition ensue up, down, and diagonally in this short quirky dramedy, culminating in the ultimate showdown. It’s man against word: Will Josh finally overcome the word that took him down?

The feature TILT and short CERISE will show on Monday, October 24, 2011, from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at The Downtown Independent located at 251 S. Main St., Los Angeles, CA 90012

Tickets are $12 at the door and online. Director Q & A to follow the screenings.
