The modern resurgence of indie film has given rise to a new breed of crowd-sourced creative projects, opening a fresh and exciting avenue for upcoming filmmakers to debut their talents to an enthusiastic audience. One such film is "Blue Like Jazz", a contemporary tale of a nineteen-year-old Texas college sophomore attempting to escape his Bible Belt upbringing for life in the Pacific Northwest at the "most godless campus in America".

Starring Austin, Texas native Marshall Allman as "Don", the film has been cited as the "largest crowd-sourced creative project" ever, which bespeaks greatly of the commitment of its prospective audience. Allman, who currently plays Tommy Mickens in the acclaimed HBO vampire drama True Blood, has quickly made a solid name for himself as an actor, proving himself a diverse and rapidly evolving cinematic talent. Allman made his debut at the age of seventeen in a summer production of Clive Barker's "The History of the Devil". He has since claimed roles in such noted television series as "Mad Men", "Prison Break", "Law and Order: SVU", "Men of a Certain Age", "Eli Stone", "The Closer" and "Grey's Anatomy", among many others.

"Blue Like Jazz" will premiere at the Storyline Conference in Portland, Oregon on June 6th and 7th, 2011. At the conclusion of the conference, the film will then be screened in several cities around the country. The schedule and registration page can be located on the Storyline website.
