To Catch Everyone Up!

Caught in the Act Magazine premiered on January 11th, 2007 with a party that definitely set the bar for film parties of the year. The comment I heard from most people after the party was not only how fun it was, but how everyone felt like they knew so many people there - in a party with an attendance of 500+! The talented community in Austin appears to be one small world with everyone linked in some form or another. It's probably why we're able to be so supportive of each other when it comes to helping out with projects that are being undertaken with budgets or not!

At our party Channel 8 news came and interviewed Lauren Scott (managing editor) and I, Corey Burke (executive editor) - as did the Austin Movie Show. Lauren and I were also on ME Television earlier that day promoting the party with local DJ/VJ Bobby Bones on his show Airwaves.

After our premiere party we were contacted by TXMPA to help as a sponsor for their fundraising event where we located top items to be donated for the silent auction, helping raise over 2k for the Film Incentive program that we are hoping to push within our government to get more films made here in TEXAS!

Future events?

We're joining forces with the Fighting Stunts Association for a big party in May where we will release our third issue of Caught in the Act Magazine and help raise the passion and spirit within Austin in making film happen here. We are also always supportive of Screen Door Film where you'll usually find us at their various screenings of the amazing short films that they find from all over the world. It's the microcinema revolution people! www.screendoorfilm.com

Our 2nd issue is out right now with SXSW film producer Matt Dentler on the cover! Look for it at your local theaters (Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar) and local businesses to pick one up!
