Kim Brattain Media to be Featured at 2023 Charlotte Film Festival

The Making of the Big Picture

CHARLOTTE, NC- Kim Brattain Media proudly announces that the 2023 Charlotte Film Festival has selected the company’s recent short film, “The Making of the Big Picture,” for screening.

The 13-minute documentary follows a group of talented teenagers from Charlotte, NC, as they embark on a transformative artistic adventure. Inspired by the work of Teen Health Connection, “The Making of the Big Picture” details the collaborative process of writing, planning, rehearsing, and performing an original play.

“As a production company, we are always looking for relevant topics,” said Brattain. “What [teenagers] are facing, the hurdles, the pain and struggles – you can’t get more real or relevant. Teen Health Connection is a non-profit we have supported for some years now, and it’s gratifying to be able to tell their story and uplift these creative teenagers with a story to tell.”

Since 2006, the Charlotte Film Festival has selected and screened independent films from across the globe. This year’s event will occur at the Independent Picture House from September 27 through October 1.

The selection of “The Making of the Big Picture” marks Kim Brattain Media’s most recent accolade. Previously, the company received eight Muse awards and 23 Telly awards. Brattain has three Emmy awards from her previous career.

Oh, what an honor to be selected for the Charlotte Film Festival!” said Brattain. “It’s hard to get into the Charlotte Fest because their standards are really high. As a result, Charlotteans get a really great selection of creative, well-produced films.”
