Prairie Lights is excited to announce a special Sneak Peak at a scene from the upcoming film noir SAY GOODBYE, GRACE, the narrative directorial debut of Ryan Olsen and part of the Nebraska Noir anthology project!
Here’s a brief synopsis of the film:
In the film, we follow Grace, a hard-boiled detective in a seedy city. When she returns to her office one night, she finds an old friend, whom she hasn’t seen in ages, dying at her desk. With his last breath, he asks her to finish a case he knows he should never have started.
What follows is a brutal story of deceit, loss, and retribution. In the end, Grace has to decide what’s more important: her life or the investigation.
We’re also excited to announce that director Ryan Olsen will be on hand to do a Q&A and discuss the creation of the film. Here’s a bit about Ryan.
Ryan N. Olsen is no stranger to video & film. Having been interested in film from an early age, he watched everything his parents would allow. His love for film began with Tim Burton, George Lucas, and Toho Ltd. Studios. He made claymations & short films with his friends throughout elementary & middle school. Once he graduated from Kearney High School in 2003, he enrolled in the Film Studies program at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln (UNL). He graduated from UNL in 2008 with his Bachelor’s and worked on film sets and commercials for a few years before starting his film production company, POW! Productions in 2011. After shooting a public service announcement for the state of Nebraska, Ryan earned a spot as the Director of Video Productions for the ad agency, Local Hero Design. After receiving multiple positive reviews with his most recent commercial for The Hot Mess bar in Lincoln, Nebraska, he has seen an influx in business. “Say Goodbye, Grace: A Detective Story,” is his debut film as a filmmaker.
Unrelated, he always plays as M. Bison in Street Fighter.
We’re stoked to not only be showing this special preview for the first time ever, but to also have Ryan Olsen on hand to do a Q&A and discuss the creation of the film! What are you waiting for? Order your Weekend Pass now for just $10.00!
