Ty Granderson Jones' Film to Feature at 2011 Action on Film Festival
Actor Ty Granderson Jones, will showcase his film, Napoleonic, at the annual Action on Film Festival in late July
Napoleonic is the story of a delusional vigilante, suffering from the effects of Napoleon complex, or 'short man syndrome' in post-Katrina New Orleans. As an actor, director, and producer, Napoleonic is one of many films where Jones has showcased his incredible talent in all aspects of film production.
Action on Film Festival creator and director, Del Weston, says, 'Ty Granderson is such a unique individual. His passion for the arts and for filmmaking are what you notice first about this mega-talent. Where he is now, and where he will be in the future, as a performer are lightyears apart. We can't wait to work with him.'
Along with having Creole roots in New Orleans via the French Quarters, Jones was also inspired to create Napoleonic by his co-writers/producers Peter Compagno and Joseph Riccobono who 'as residents of New Orleans - lost everything they had - essentially everything they worked for.' Jones goes on to say, 'it was shocking - two to three years after the initial devastation, and conditions had gotten no better for the residents of New Orleans and not much better today due to the BP Oil spill.'
The seventh annual Action on Film Festival will take place July 22-30 in Pasadena, CA. Featuring screenings, dinners, an award show, and a renowned red carpet event, the festival and celebration will attract hundreds of talented filmmakers, celebrities, and fans alike.
