EoM senior interviewer Thomas Manning recently spoke with director Troy Carlton to talk about his new comedy film Birdies.
A filmmaker from North Carolina, Carlton discusses the NC connections from this project and shares stories about what it means to get creative when you’re working with limited resources.
If you prefer an audio version, you can listen to the full interview here:
Twin Pines, a failing egalitarian country club where getting hammered is par for the course faces bankruptcy if they don’t win a local tournament. The owner hires Jake Baxter, an ex-golfer with a checkered past to be his golf pro and save the club against their rivals at the snooty club across town, Magnolia Pointe.
Birdies will be available on VOD from birdiesthemovie.com on 2sday, 2/22/22, followed by other major platforms.
Thomas Manning is a member of the NCFCA and SEFCA, and also the co-host of the television show and radio program Meet Me at the Movies. He has served as a production assistant and voting member on the Film Selection Committee for the Real to Reel Film Festival. Additionally, he manages his own film review and interview site, The Run-Down on Movies. Recently, Manning graduated from Gardner-Webb University with a double-major in Communications and English. His passion for cinema and storytelling is rivaled only by his love for the music of Taylor Swift.
