"...We can only hope he's also putting in a good word for filming incentives at the Texas Capitol. More to come when our Lege arrives in town early next year.Now showing (and Netflixing) Two films from Austin creators are finding a wider audience..."
"..."We decided at Sundance to make a film from our lives rather than from what we had been writing," says Jay, and, within the year, the brothers were back with a feature that quickly became known as more than good enough, backed by ecstatic audience response, strong reviews, and the representation muscle of John Sloss' Cinetic Media. If it took them another year to finally work out distribution with the partnership of Roadside Attractions and Netflix, that lag time hasn't deterred them from approaching the making of their next film the same way..."
"...'Room' with viewers Kyle Henry's Room is coming to a theatre near you in a limited Texas release in April. Then it heads to both the Sundance Channel, in a pay-TV deal, and Netflix for DVD distribution..."
