Ann Cusack, who played Ava in Crooked Lane, had a role in ABC’s Private Practice recently in an episode called ‘Blowups’. You can watch the full episode for a limited time on Hulu (embedded here):
We’ve been hiding this on our Facebook Fan Page for a while, and now, as the film starts the festival circuit with two wins (Best of NH Filmmaker 2009 at NH Film Festival and Best of New England 2009 at Rhode Island International Horror Film Festival) it is time to share it here on the blog with all of you. Enjoy!
As we mentioned in the contest rules for the signed DVDs, the DVD’s will NOT be mailed until after Sundance, to avoid an accidental leak disqualifying our submission. Don’t worry – we won’t forget to send you your copy!
The DVDs have been signed by Chase Bailey, Ann Cusack, Brett Cullen, Eliya-Quaye Constance, and Noa Siegel. ENJOY!
Winners, chosen randomly by drawing out of the entire batch of entries:
Winners will also be notified via email. Congratulations, everyone!
So many of the cast and crew family were on hand to receive the award. It was a truly special moment with Chase, Mark, Brett, Ann, Adrienne, Jessica, Patrick, Marc, Eliya-Quaye, Gina, Bethany, Tracey, Dan and the rest of the cast and crew too shy to run up on stage (we’re looking at you, Kit!).
We sat down in Chase’s office and talked with Chase about some of the questions we’ve gotten from the fans of the film, and had a fantastic afternoon learning about his take on the process. In this episode Chase talks about how he cast the film and how he found his crew family.

We’ve given our Facebook fans a sneak peek at the trailer! You can see it, too, just head over to Facebook and become a fan.
That also enters you into the contest to win a seat at the screening with the cast and crew we mentioned in this post, by the way.
Crooked Lane will be hosting a few contests prior to the NH premier. The first is now live on our home page (found here). It is a bit hidden. See if you can find the link with your mouse, and sign up!
The second contest will launch shortly from the Facebook Fan Page, and the prize is much bigger. To be included in the announcement at the end of September, please join the Facebook Fan Page, and do tell your friends about it also so that they might have a chance to win!
Thomas Bailey, son of Chase Bailey and author of the backstory posts here on the Crooked Lane blog, took some footage of the challenges the crew faced in filming even the simplest shots on the streets of Portsmouth. Trying to get the film complete in a low-impact way often caused interesting delays like this one:
