Local filmmaker takes part in SNOB
Amesbury resident Michael Azevedo recently directed his first film — and it’s ready to be viewed.
The 30-minute feature called “Overdrawn” was written by Azevedo’s brother and offers “a humorous and dramatic look at three individuals who get caught up in the easy credit bubble of the 2004-2008 period.”
It will be screened at the SNOB (Somewhat North of Boston) filmfest in Concord, N.H., on Saturday. To view the schedule and for ticket information, visit the festival’s website at http://www.snobfilmfestival.com/.
