Braden King is ‘Here’ in the Moment

I normally don’t take the time to point out film-related websites, but I like what independent filmmaker Braden King (who is currently in post-production with his debut film titled Here) has done.

I know that buyers, sellers, producers, film festival curators, distribution companies and media outlets such as IONCINEMA.com appreciate such attention to detail.
