Aaron Putnam: An Indie Filmmaker

Aaron graduated from Western Carolina University in 2009 with a BFA in Motion Picture and Television Production. In the Summer of 2007 he wrote and directed a short for the 48 Hour Film Fest in Asheville called "Cosmo of 1932". The film was about a modern detective, named Jerry Cosmo, who idolized the abrasive noir detectives of the 30's and 40's.  The film won 9 of the available 19 awards, including Best Actor: Miles Rice, Best Directing, Best Writing, Crowd favorite, and Best Film.

After that Aaron toyed around with the idea of creating a web series based loosely around the concept, but could never figure out what direction to take it. A year or so ago, he was sitting with Miles Rice, the actor who had played Cosmo, and he convinced him to take another look at the series. He did so, and by Christmas 2010 he was filming the first episode. Aaron is planning a 6 episode season to start off with, in which he is currently in pre-production of the last 5 episodes. At the moment, his next move is to complete casting, which he will be sending out calls very soon. Please watch the episodes and support his work. Even better, you can go the his youtube channel and subscribe. That way you can stay up to date any time he releases an episode.
