EM3 the Movie (Eenie Meenie Miney Moe)

Sometimes the gods are good. And though I’m not sure what I’ve done to deserve the favor of their grace, I am, all the same, basking in the glow of the film gods as I continue to watch the teaser trailer for EM3 and wonder how I got so lucky to be even marginally involved with this piece. Though my involvement was minimal (I had the chance to review and do one of the script edits in its developmental phase), it was an amazing experience to be able to work on such a dynamic screenplay. These guys captured Miami in its good and bad, the way only a native could.

While I wish I could share the trailer with you, Emmy award-winning editor turned feature film director Jokes Yanes insists it’s not ready for the world yet, so I’ll have to sit tight and keep my links to myself for the moment. But what I can share with you is a few behind-the-scenes images to whet your appetite for the kind of film-making that’s been long overdue in Miami.




From the award-winning filmmakers behind Magic City Memoirs and Vladimir’s Vodka comes EM3: Written & Directed by Jorge Jokes Yanes, starring Andres Dominguez, Belkys Isabel Galvez, Oscar Torre, J.Bishop, David Lago, Sito Rocks & more.

Magic City Memoirs

The official trailer for Magic City Memoirs has been released. Tickets go on sale tomorrow for its world premier at the 2011 Miami International Film Festival on Friday, March 11 at 7:00 p.m. in the historic Gusman Theatre in Downtown Miami. If the trailer is any indication, this is pure, real-deal Miami private school drama (I should know). Cant wait to see it.
