Revelator’s Hudson to Premiere “Distance” at SXSW 2016


We’re very excited to announce our own Carlyn Hudson’s new web pilot, “Distance: A Tale of Hers, His, and Your Choosing,” is slated to premiere at SXSW this March! The pilot will premiere in the “Future of Entertainment” track of the festival, a section dedicated to presenting the changing landscape of entertainment, focusing on areas like TV and episodic content.

Distance,” a project Hudson co-directed with Jack Mayer, is the story of a long distance relationship told from two perspectives, and by two directors…HIS and HERS. Uniquely, “Distance” allows the viewer to pick which viewpoint to watch first; each individual’s experience is thus presented from two interwoven but distinct subjective realities. As you watch HIS and HER episodes of “Distance”, you’ll see the world of each individual as they weave in and out of each other’s lives. And all those times they’re together – you’ll see them as each individual character sees them. And all those times they’re together – you’ll see those as each individual character sees them – through the lens of their subjective reality. At the SXSW screening, the directors and cast will be on hand to discuss the process of shooting this series, and how the digital space allows for a unique storytelling experience that asks the audience to choose their own adventure.


In addition to her film and commercial work, Hudson co-produced Andrew Bujalski’s COMPUTER CHESS and was selected as a segment director of SLACKER: 20 YEARS LATER. Her shorts have premiered at SXSW, Austin Film Festival, and LA Comedy Shorts amongst others, and she is currently in post-production on her debut feature comedy, THE BIG SPOON. We are thrilled, of course, by the ongoing involvement of Revelator team members in this year’s SXSW festival, and thrilled that such conceptually innovative work continues to find a home here in Austin. Congratulations, Carlyn!
