Development News - ONE HAND CLAPPING Filming in Austin



A new feature film production, "One Hand Clapping," is currently being filmed in the Austin, Lockhart, and San Marcos area with an all Texas cast and crew.

The timeline of "One Hand Clapping" has a long and winding development history. Writer/Director/ Producer Jerry Alden Deal wrote the first draft in the early 1990s, more than 25 years ago. It has been previously optioned by three different L.A. production companies, but none of those situations bore the fruit of ever going into production.

Once the rights reverted back to him, he decided to produce and direct the project himself. Since then, the screenplay has gone through numerous drafts. Deal adds, "Returning to my Texas roots and filming with local cast and crew is actually very fulfilling. At various times I have had name talent express serious interest in this project, but coming back here and going totally indie just feels right."

In addition, "One Hand Clapping" won a screenplay award at Telluride IndieFest in 2002, and in 2013 it was awarded the best fiction screenplay at the Monaco International Film Festival in Monte Carlo.

Deal, who grew up in Texas and who attended the University of Texas in the 1970s, has also worked on several other film projects in various capacities, as well as his 2007 directorial debut of "Dreams Awake." He also worked several years at Sony Pictures Entertainment in California.

"One Hand Clapping" will be filming until the end of April.

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
