Two New Additions to our EMERGING TALENT Showcase! Brenton Covington's "Eleanor Rigby" and Alex Duong's "So Far, So Kush" 

This love is long overdue. So I apologize profusely to Brenton Covington and Alexander Duong, two impressive filmmakers who contacted me a few months back to see if I would be interested in watching their short films.

For my Thanksgiving break, I made it my mission to finally sit down and catch up on their films, and I'm glad I did!

First we have Brenton Covington, a filmmaker from Tempe, Arizona. He wrote, produced, edited, and directed the short film "Eleanor Rigby." It's a contemplative piece about an elderly man remembering the sins of his past.

"Eleanor Rigby" is gripping in its entirety, well acted, smartly paced, and will make you wish you'll be able to see a full-feature of the project.

Visit Covington's official site right here.

And then we have the comedy "So Far, So Kush." Alex Duong wrote, produced, directed, and acted in this comedy about a pair of bumbling friends who are on the hunt for the greatest weed of all -- the Kush.

Duong stars as Danny, a Midwestern laundry attendant, who decides to take his pal Brian (Munch) on a road trip to Los Angeles to find Kush.

"So Far, So Kush" is relentlessly funny, and just like "Eleanor Rigby," I want to see the full feature film of the project as well.

Here's Duong's mini-biography from IMDB:

Alex Duong, is the youngest of six children of Huong Thanh Le (tailor) and Noul Van Duong (factory worker). Alex is of Vietnamese, Chinese, and French heritage. He grew up in the lower class portion of East Dallas, Texas where he attended Skyline High School and North Dallas High and went on to pursue a degree in medicine.

While on a full-scholarship, Duong excelled in his undergrad studies and was left with an open semester where he enrolled in theatre courses which led to his first acting gigs in regional theatre productions.

Deciding to pursue his hobby as a career, He uprooted himself and made the trip to Los Angeles in the winter of 2006.

Good Luck and Congratulations to both Brenton Covington and Alex Duong! :happy
