WPTS News speaks with Tjardus Greidanus and Laura Davis
Hosts of The Chow Down Steve Wuchina and Matt Patton took a moment to sit down with Tjardus Greidanus and Laura Davis, the writer/director and producer, respectively, of the Pittsburgh-filmed “A New York Heartbeat.”
The film, currently running the festival circuit — where they recently took home the prize for the Best Narrative Feature Film at the Asheville Film Festival — tells the story of a young gang leader who falls into both trouble and love in 1950s New York.
Our special guests explain their decision to film in Pittsburgh, both logistically and creatively, along with the challenges and advantages of working with amateur actors. At the time of the interview, “A New York Heartbeat” was seeking distribution at the American Film Market. More information can be found at www.anewyorkheartbeat.com.
A screening of the film will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013 at The Oaks Theatre in Oakmont.
