My latest project has taken me into the world of filmmaking. It’s unbelievable to see my artistic journey connect with my personal journey, and I am beyond excited to share this with you!

To give you some background – The Sionna Project will produce a film this fall. The film is based on the true Texas story of a young woman given away at birth, her search for her parents, and what happened once she found them.

The Dallas Film Society, Studio Movie Grill, and Ubiquimedia sponsor this project. The completed film will make its world premiere at Dallas International Film Festival (DIFF ) in the spring of 2016. The Studio Movie Grill will also provide a guaranteed limited national theatrical release.

The Sionna Project is very special to me. You could call me the driving, creative force for this project since the upcoming film is about my adoptive journey and finding my true self.

I was adopted from Hope Cottage Pregnancy and Adoption Center, the oldest nonprofit, non-faith based adoption agency in Dallas. My journey has been filled with surprises, twists and turns. I feel driven to put the spotlight on adoption. As a way to do this, DIFF announced the commencement of this project with a screenwriting competition in April.

Each submission was required to include specific Sionna Project story elements and the winner received a $10,000 cash award. With more than 200 submissions, we narrowed it down to five finalists. All of our finalists were extremely talented, but ultimately we had to decide on a winner.

On Monday, August 3, the Dallas Film Society, Studio Movie Grill, and Ubiquimedia hosted an intimate reception at The Highland Dallas to make the announcement we had all been waiting for! Chad Berry and David Langlinais were named the winners with their screenplay “Three Days in August.”

A little bit more about the winners –

Chad Berry hails from Denver, CO. He is an award-winning advertising writer and is currently a Creative Director at The Richards Group. His alma mater is the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he received a Bachelor of Science in journalism.  He is a husband, father, and avid book collector. This is his first screenplay.

David Langlinais was born in Abbeville, LA. He is a graduate of Louisiana State University and received a Bachelor of Arts in journalism. David currently lives in Dallas with his wife and daughter. When he is not working as a freelance advertising writer, he is writing short stories. His short story collection, “Duck, Thief and Other Stories” is due out this fall.

Stay tuned for more updates about this project. The production of this film is truly a dream come true, and I can’t wait for you to see the end result!

The Story Behind Sionna Productions, a Defining Force in Dallas Fine Art

In 2010 Shannon partnered with her youngest son, Kincaid, to create a company that would manage her work in the worlds of Dallas fine art and music. They named the company Sionna Productions Ltd. Co. in homage to a favorite myth of the goddess Sionna, who inspired the name of the longest river in Ireland, the River Shannon.

The Goddess and the River: An Insight into One of the Best Artists in Dallas

The longest river in Ireland, the Shannon, creates a natural boundary between the eastern province of Leinster and western Connacht. It is the most significant waterway in the country and is named for the early Irish goddess Sionna. The goddess sought out hazelnuts of wisdom, which in ancient Irish folklore contained éigse, the spirit of inspiration and creativity. In the myth, Sionna found the Well of Knowledge, which was surrounded by nine hazel trees. The hazel is linked to autumn and the festival of Samhain. As the ripe nuts fell into the water they burst into a purple spray. The salmon of wisdom who lived in the pool ate the nuts, and for every nut a red spot appeared on their skin. The nuts also created bubbles of inspiration in the water, which were carried downstream. As Sionna leaned over the pool to gather the nuts, she lost her footing and fell in. The pool was angered and rose up over her and swept her down into the sea, birthing the river that still carries her name.
