Director BIO: Eric Benjamin Parson (BIG BASIN WILL NEVER BE THE SAME)

Eric is a musician and composer from Santa Cruz, CA who copes with the absurdity of modern life by connecting with the natural world. His non-verbal, music-driven trail films favor a show versus tell approach to allow viewers reflect on their own relationship to nature.

Director Statement

Thank you for watching my film about Big Basin. This film was a true labor of love. It was the first time I felt that a work of my creation offered value to other people beyond my own artistic goals. It is simple and real and I think most will see its value simply by taking the time to watch as the footage speaks for itself.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
