MIPtalk co-host Brad Rowe has brought numerous characters to life in a range of Film and TV roles but the one fans always ask him about is Shaun.
Shaun is the writer who develops a deep emotional and physical bond with the budding painter/graffiti artist Zach in the 2007 independent feature film Shelter, written and directed by Jonah Markowitz. The winner of the 2008 Audience Award for Dramatic Feature at Outfest, the film was heralded as a reinvention of LGBT film making that defies the conventions of gay cinema to tell a heartfelt and authentic love story in a unique setting.
In partnership with the Screen Actors Guild LGBT Actor’s Committee, MIPtalk presented a screening of Shelter on Saturday, April 17, 2010, to an enthusiastic, capacity audience in Los Angeles.
The screening was followed by a lively and informative Q&A featuring Shelter star Brad Rowe, its writer/director Jonah Markowitz, and here! Network’s Director of Development Billy Cogar, all of whom shared their recollections in making the film. The event was moderated by Zino Macaluso, SAG national director/sr. counsel, Agency Relations.
