Mary Beth, under her production company's moniker MBE Productions, in association with Jesse Nyander, founder of Horsetooth International Film Festival and fellow filmmaker, present the pandemic short film "LibAry".
Written and directed by Mary Beth Eversole, "Cinematography" and editing by Jesse Nyander, "LibAry" is the product of a class the two created called "Let's Shoot a Short Film" through La-De-Da Performing Arts. Right when the class was supposed to take place, the pandemic shut everything down. So they pivoted and took everything online. Teaching the students via online video chat, they were able to cast, coach the actors, teach them how to shoot from their own homes while Jesse and Mary Beth directed via online video chat, and pulled off a pandemic miracle! While the film isn't close to perfect, it is a testament to the times we all lived through in 2020-2021. And hey, it even was nominated for a short film festival!
