Stephane Gauger is rolling along with his first feature Owl and the Sparrow. The Spirit Award is for films under 20 million dollars, which hardly sound indie, but oh well. Gauger's film actually is in a special categories for features under $500,000 (how much did it cost in Vietnam?). A good natured guy, I'm sure he's being hit by projects left and right, and he deserves it, his film is amazing.
His nomination was reported in the Hollywood Reporter.
I first saw Gauger playing a character in Six String Samurai. He's come a long way since. He has a small role in The Rebel as well.
