The Revolution will NOT be televised.and this preview:
When the television switchover goes horribly awry, the nation plunges into digital darkness.
Spottsfield.com tells some history of the film:
Last night, a funny thing happened. Corduroy Wednesday won the 2009 Best Hometowner Feature at this years festival. This makes their feature film, "The Conversion", award winning. Why is that funny? Well, cause it wasn't supposed to happen. "The Conversion" was just to follow the growing trend in Memphis and just be a web series.
Go Memphis says, "The satirical Philip K. Dick-esque plot involves government dupes, "cyber-terrorists" and "digital anarchists."" The Memphis Flyer reports that
Phillips and collaborators Erik Morrison and Benjamin Rednour financed The Conversion via a lucrative win (roughly $1,500) for their short film CottonBallLand at a recent installment of Live From Memphis' L'il Film Fest, a quarterly contest and showcase that has returned from hiatus to inspire and help develop local filmmakers. "That's what keeps us in practice," Phillips says of the L'il Film Fest, especially when we aren't working on a huge project."
