Equus Film Fest

7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN and WHEN I GET THAT PONY RODE are at the 1st Annual Equus Film Festival!

 

TSB congratulates Cindy Meehl, Director of the award-winning documentary BUCK and award-winning instructional series 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN, along with singer/songwriter Templeton Thompson, for winning Best Music Video for “When I Get That Pony Rode” at the 1st Annual Equus Film Festival, going on now through this weekend (August 15-18, 2013).

“It was AMAZING to see our video in the Arcada Theater, on the BIG screen,” says Templeton. “That’s a first for me, and I could definitely get used to it! None of this would have happened if not for our dear friend the incredibly talented Director, Cindy Meehl.”

After debuting online on CMT.com on February 19, 2013, “When I Get That Pony Rode” became one of the most requested videos on that site, on its second day hitting #1 over many other major country artists. The video, along with 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN, is an official selection of the Equus Film Festival, and Templeton traveled to St. Charles, Illinois, where the film festival is running in conjunction with the Festival of the Horse and Drum,  to perform—as well as see her song on the “big screen”!

Speaking of the big screen, if you are planning to check out the Festival of the Horse and Drum, or if you’re just in the St. Charles area, you can attend a one-hour screening of 7 CLINICS on Sunday, August 18, at 2:30 pm. Tickets to event are available at the Arcada Theater–only $6.00 for an all-day pass to see all the horsey film selections!

If you haven’t been there, the Arcada Theater is worth a visit! Built in 1926 by local millionaire and Chicago Tribune cartoonist Lester J. Norris, it became known as one of the outstanding Vaudeville houses of its day. Many legendary stars have graced the stage, including George Burns and Gracie Allen, Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, Olivia DeHavilland, the John Phillip Sousa Band, Cornelia Otis Skinner, Vincent Price, Jeanette McDonald, Walter Slezak and Maria Von Trapp, to name a few. In 2005, the Arcada was fully renovated and now plays hosts to festivals and entertainers, including today’s hottest stars.

 

It's a thrill to have 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN and WHEN I GET THAT PONY RODE on the big screen at the historic Arcada Theater!

We were all sorts of excited when we first heard that Cindy Meehl, Director of the award-winning documentary BUCK and the instructional DVD series 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN, was directing Nashville singer and songwriter Templeton Thompson’s new music video! And now the video for “When I Get That Pony Rode,” which is featured on the 7 CLINICS DVD series and Tempy’s SONGS FROM 7 CLINICS CD, is premiering on CMT.com (CLICK HERE TO WATCH IT NOW!)

Here’s what Tempy had to say about making the video for “When I Get That Pony Rode”:

‘When I Get That Pony Rode’ is one of the songs we re-recorded exclusively for the 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN project. It was inspired by Buck’s book, The Faraway Horses. At a point in the book, Buck talks about ‘the consequences of a fast turn,’ and we actually tried writing a song with that title, but it just wasn’t working. And then, magically, like they often tend to do, the title ‘When I Get That Pony Rode’ appeared…the song is for everyone out there working their tails off doing what they LOVE and what they’re passionate about and knowing, really knowing, that they really are going to have somethin’ to show when they ‘get that pony rode.’ The song is a metaphor for that journey and everything that goes with it—the joy and the pain of it all, what ya gotta go through to ‘get there.’

“Making the video with Cindy and her team was AMAZING!! I still can’t believe the opportunity and gift that Cindy has given us…it was an absolute honor to work with the crème de la crème of the music video world.  And, I am such a PROUD mama cowgirl of my big, beautiful Jane and Beau [Tempy’s two Quarter Horses, who appear in the video]. They shined like the diamonds they are on the screen.

“Getting to make the video for ‘When I Get That Pony Rode’ was a dream come true for me.”
