TwoOhSix Interviews: The Creators of "Say You Will"

Say You Will is a film that enjoyed its world premiere during the 2017 Seattle International Film Festival and director Nick Naveda along with producers Nancy Taylor and Taylor Grabowsky were more than happy to make themselves available for an in depth discussion on what it took to put this film together. After a round of hearty hugs and hand shakes, we snagged a table outside a cafe to take advantage of the perfectly sunny Seattle weather and, before we knew it, our conversation was underway.

2017 Recap - The Movies

Another year in the books and another top 10 list has been completed. It's always interesting to look back over an entire year of films and trying to create some sort of order to the chaos. Throw in the fact that I reviewed more movies this year than any of the previous six years(140!) and making decisions on which ones would make the list was tougher than ever. I hope you have a chance to see all of the movies I have mentioned in this recap, they are each special to me in their own way.

2017 Recap - The Performances

In 2017, I watched more movies than I ever have in a single year which means there are tons of actors and actresses I could choose from to make this list. The most important things to me in my decision making process was how memorable and how affecting the performances were. You may not have heard of some of the people or the movies they are in because they are from film festivals or limited releases so I am hoping u have a chance to see them at some point.

2017 Recap - The Film Festivals

2017 was a big year for TwoOhSix.com as I was able to provide coverage for four different film festivals including a total of 50 movies watched and four interviews conducted.
