Joe Cashiola

My good friend Joe Cashiola, one of the brightest writer/directors I know, just won the coveted and prestigious IFP Film annual 50 thousand dollar grant for his first feature “A Thing as Big as the Ocean”. Much congratulation must go to Nathan Duncan, editor of the film, who did a brilliant job with the non-linear narrative. I've viewed the rough cut twice and can't wait to see what the revised version looks like. What’s my prediction, you ask? Well – the film’s important enough to make it to Sundance and beyond. YES!

I took this photo of Joe in Marfa, TX.
