TONIGHT: WASHINGTON FILMWORKS HOSTS PULLING FOCUS

Pulling Focus
Filmmaking is like baking a cake with a long list of ingredients. From producing to directing, acting to music, there are countless components that go into the successful completion of the final product, and each must be carefully calculated and understood before mixing with other parts. “Pulling Focus,” an event at the Sorrento Hotel moderated by the dynamic Warren Etheredge of The Warren Report, is a panel designed to provide a discussion platform for the diverse patrons in the business of film. The upcoming “Pulling Focus” welcomes special guest Rick Rosenthal, who has directed films such as Halloween II and worked on TV shows like Smallville and The Practice. He currently runs White Water Films, which is producing actor Matthew Lillard’s directorial debut Fat Kid Rules the World, currently filming in Seattle. Following the conversation, dialogue is encouraged to continue with a cocktail party hosted by Washington Wine Commission.
