An Open Letter from Nathan Cole, Writer/Producer of THE WATERHOLE

I just got this email from Nathan Cole, the Writer/Producer of THE WATERHOLE which we will be screening this Friday. I wanted to pass it on here first before I send it out others on the Newsletter and facebook lists. It is pasted below.

Take Care,

To the Friends and Patrons of the Annapolis Pretentious Film Society,

Almost fifteen years ago, bored and aimless, I decided to write a screenplay. It was terrible. I wanted to capture my life at the time, a series of misadventures in a small dive bar my friend worked at where we would drink, listen to and discuss music, and romanticize the "old-timers" that had so diligently dedicated their lives to boozing and refusing to become part of a normal society. As time moved on the various ugly truths of that world revealed themselves in mostly annoying, sometimes traumatic ways, but I knew there was still a story to be told from them.

I continued to stumble towards my goal of writing movies - moving to LA, leaving LA, moving back to LA, getting a boring day job, getting married, having a kid - but never stopped working to make that once embarrassing screenplay something I was proud of, a story about growing up and growing past the things that can keep you from being the person you want to be. "The Waterhole" has been a labor of love, an incredible journey and beautiful burden all wrapped up in one. Getting to go back to my hometown of Reno, Nevada and film in the bar I frequented and the record store I worked at was the perfect end to the creation of that screenplay.

Now, my partners, Daniel Menahem and Ely Mennin, and I, along with a very wonderful cast of up and coming actors, have a film we are very proud of and we are extremely excited to share it with you.

Nathan Cole
