Kelly Deerdale, Naturist debuted last night to a packed house at the Laemmle Grande in downtown Los Angeles. The short film precedes the main feature "Orgies and the Meaning of Life." The film's star Andromeda Ambard along with executive producer Clinton H. Wallace were in attendance, along with celebrities including Kerri Kasem, Alicia Arden, Andrea Harrison and Tonya Kay from the latter film.
Also in attendance from "Kelly Deerdale, Naturist" was actor Lu Johnson, director Ramzi Abed, and writer/actor T. L. Young.
Both Kelly Deerdale and the Screening Room were inspired by the same incident that Young witnessed at his nudist club back home in Hawaii.

The Screening Room was partially inspired by an incident at the Hawaii Naturist Society. This incident became the basis of a short story which became a separate short film. And that film is . .
Kelly Deerdale, Naturist, based on T.L. Young's short story from the now defunct American Nudist website follows a young poet visiting his nudist club back home in Mililani, Hawaii. There he meets a teenage girl, whose behavior forces him to examine the realities of modern-day nudism.
This film precedes our main feature, "Orgies and the Meaning of Life" opens at the Laemmle Grande theater in downtown Los Angeles. Please join me for the movie, a Q&A with cast and crew, and then drinks at the Library Bar afterwards.
If you can't make Friday, I will also be doing a Q&A after the Saturday 7:10 PM show.
