Award-Winning Fort Worth Film Company to Host Screening Event for Newest Short Film

On February 27, Fort Worth film company Make Something Beautiful is debuting its newest short film "The Twilite Hour" and hosting live musical performances from DFW artists.

The award-winning Fort Worth film company Make Something Beautiful is hosting an exclusive event to debut their latest production “The Twilite Hour,” starring local Fort Worth talent, as well as live musical performances on February 27.

“The Twilite Hour” is a short film depicting a variety of characters who are all working to find their way through the struggles that come with being an artist and creating inspiring work, which was filmed at Near Southside’s Twilite Lounge. Make Something Beautiful wants attendees “to step into an experience that will transport them into a moment in time where the world falls aside and the people and their stories are all that matters,” according to a statement.

The debut event will have live performances from DFW musicians and artists, as well as two of the film’s featured artists: Henry the Archer’s frontman and singer-songwriter Richard Hennessy and Texas-based writer and musician Keegan McInroe. 

“We are honored to live in a city where people are creating incredible and meaningful artistic work,” Warren Cook, founder of Make Something Beautiful, said in a statement. “Our team wants to capture those moments and celebrate them and the creators behind the projects.”

Guests will also be able to participate at the premiere through Make Something Beautiful’s on-site “confessional-style” recording booth where they can share their own stories for a future film project.

Cook and his team have been forging their own path in the Fort Worth film scene over the past five years with a determination to tell real stories through each of their films.

The production company’s first film “Fort Worth Funky” won a “Best Video” ADDY Award in 2015, which marked Make Something Beautiful’s first sign of success. The original project evolved into “Funkytown Circus,” a short film series featuring interviews with industry leaders and artists in the Fort Worth area.

More recently, the company’s multi-video series “Fort Worth Stories” took home the “Best of Show” award at the 2019 ADDYs. The series was created through a collaboration with Visit Fort Worth highlighting unique people from the city, and was used for international tourism promotion.

While 2018’s “Funkytown Circus” celebrated the highs of life as an artist, “The Twilite Hour” will take a different approach by displaying the ups and downs behind creating artistic works, according to a Cook.

“Shot at the Near Southside’s Twilite Lounge and starring an array of local talent, the short film depicts a confluence of characters in a neighborhood bar, each navigating the blurred line between truth and lies,” Cook said in a statement.

“The Twilite Hour” special screening event will take place on Thursday, February 27 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Twilite Lounge Fort Worth. Click here to watch the trailer for “The Twilite Hour.”
