Travis Champagne's short film Jackdaw is traveling festival circuits and winning awards although this is nothing new to the young director whose previous short film "The Out and Outs" starring Mean Girl's Jonathan Bennett and popular Australian TV Show Neighbour's Jordy Lucas won the audience award at the Seattle Shorts Film Festival. According to MTV's Katie Calautti regarding Champagne's most recent film, "Bluesy tunes, bayou vistas and dark plot lines abound. The ever building slow burn that isJackdaw". Jackdaw most recently screened at Fargo Film Festival and is on the lineup for the upcoming Hill Country Film Festival in Fredricksberg. If you can't make a festival screening, you can look for it on ITunes as part of the distribution deal it scored with Academy Award winning short film distributor Shorts HDbecause of its success at the Louisiana Film Prize.One thing is for sure: Champagne is a budding director you want to keep your eye on and some of the best in the business are jumping at the chance to work with him!
