Special one-night-only screening on November 15th!
Q&A with Coproducer Nick Bafia and other special guests (cast & crew).
Fix, a new musical feature created in NC, opens on three estranged high school friends—Cameron Poole, Jackson Schiff, and Emma Porter—who reunite at a concert in their 20s and are suddenly confronted with the dreams that life has forced them to abandon, as they struggle to heal their relationship, their futures, and themselves.
The film, which premiered in Los Angeles in October and yet has many festival awards to its credit already, features a soundtrack of engaging songs written especially for the film and performed by several members of NC’s own indie royalty: Mountain Goats, Superchunk, and The dB’s. Locations in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, including scenes in the Cat’s Cradle music venue, will be familiar to many.
Nicholas Bafia is a Latino filmmaker, living in Los Angeles and working in production for Film/TV. He graduated in 2019 from the University of North Carolina, where he was the Station Manager for Student TV, served on the board for the Carolina Film Association, and organized the Swain Lot Film Festival for 2 years. Nick’s collegiate theatre experience includes various prod staff roles for UNC Pauper Players.
Chris Stamey—who along with the dB’s and Mitch Easter helped create the Reynolds High “Combo Corner” scene that has given Winston-Salem recent international recognition in the indie community—will be there to answer questions about the process of recording and mixing the soundtrack of original songs, dialogue, and foley for cinema sound.
