If you're an art student that thinks it's enough to just go to art school and wait for someone to "discover" you, see this movie; it's a much more realistic portrayal of the trials and tribulations we face as artists post-college.
You would have no idea that this film is an indie because it's shot beautifully - great color, perfect sound, lighting, etc. Madison is charming and natural beauty (no fake plastic Hollywood here!) This is clearly the work of a filmmaker who is writing what he knows.
I don't want to give any spoilers here, so I'm just going to talk about why I'm so glad I stumbled upon it. My festival received "No Footing" as a submission and our panel unanimously voted to make it an Official Selection of Project Twenty1's 2010 Philadelphia Filmathon. After a team of judges reviewed it, it was selected as "Best Feature" for the festival. We sent a copy to the Philadelphia Inquirer, and they got hooked. Then it started getting into festivals ALL OVER THE PLACE and winning boatloads of awards (not all of them are listed on here for some reason).
I feel so proud that we stumbled upon this jewel and hope that it receives the distribution, attention, and accolades it deserves. Don't forget us humble festival folks here when you're famous!
All 23-year-old Madison wanted to be was an artist. Now out of college a year and a half, she finds herself no closer to successful career then when she began. Stuck in a dead end job at a local copy shop, her relationships crumbling around her, and a complete lack of inspiration to aspire for more, Madison attempts to jump start her career and get her life started.
