FIRST FEATURE Heads Into Post
April 23, 2015 by Screenmag
Curtis Matzke is raising finishing funds for his aptly named doc FIRST FEATURE which follows a young director, Thomas Reilly-King, on his 5-year quest to finish his dream project. Curtis met Thomas when they were both undergraduates at Michigan State University, and even then Thomas had a reputation for being overly ambitious with his kitchen sink production standards. He was already a year into shooting what would become ENDURING DESTINY, and the high stakes drama of that project promised to become more interesting than the movie itself, so Curtis saw the opportunity for a project of his own. Bruised and battle scarred, ENDURING DESTINY eventually crossed the finish line, and premiered in Okemos, Michigan in September 2014. Curtis aims to finish FIRST FEATURE later this fall.
