Episode Summary

We’re at the SF IndieFest discussing Sammy & Quinn and Love Letter Templates, two films that share an intimate look at life in San Francisco.

Episode Notes

Welcome to SF IndieFest! We’re happy to participate in this festival that celebrates stories told by people from the Bay, and shot in the Bay. We covered two films, one short, and one feature, that share an intimate look at two different sides of city life.

In the short film Sammy & Quinn, we follow Sammy as he tries to convince his older brother, Quinn, who has been missing for five years and is suffering from mental illness, to join the family for Thanksgiving dinner. Director Christopher Coppola, and his son/actor, Bailey Coppola, discuss mental health, what it was like to film all over San Francisco during the heart of the quarantine, and the pros and cons of working with family.

The narrative feature Love Letter Templates has a truly unique style that blends music, film, and animation to tell the story of loving and partying in San Francisco in the early 2000's. Director/writer/producer Joselito Sering explains how his first feature length film came to be, and the years of hard work and focus it took to get it done. Of course we have fun reminiscing about our “young” and carefree days in San Francisco, and we’re pretty sure we’ve crossed paths at a party or club on more than one occasion.
