A short film, The Last Catch, with screenplay by TSC’s Matthew Paris, has been nominated for a film award at the Madrid International Film Festival.

Produced by Looknow Productions, The Last Catch is a story of a young man seeking to make amends with his estranged and terminally-ill father. The quest is for the two to play one last game of catch.

Paris, who also directed the film, said the idea for the film was inspired by the 1989 film, Field of Dreams.

Filmed in San Marcos, Texas, The Last Catch stars Bradley Costas, Mitchell Rad, Joy Leigh, and Marielle Taimenglo.

“We’re extremely pleased that Matthew’s work is being acknowledged by this nomination,” said Frank Fear, TSC’s Managing Editor. “He’s a talented writer, director, and producer.”

Paris contributes regularly to TSC and writes extensively about Houston-area sports. He focuses on teams, games, sports figures, and events with historic significance.

The Madrid award winner will be announced this July in Spain.


About Frank Fear

I’m a Columnist at The Sports Column. My specialty is sports commentary with emphasis on sports reform. I also serve as TSC’s Chief Operating Officer and Managing Editor. In that role I coordinate the daily flow of submissions from across the country and around the world, including overseeing editing and posting articles. I’m especially interested in enabling the development of young, aspiring writers. I can relate to them. I began covering sports in high school for my local newspaper. In college I served as sports editor of the campus newspaper and worked in the Sports Information Director’s Office at St. John Fisher College. After finishing grad degrees at West Virginia and Iowa State I had a 35-year academic career at Michigan State. Now retired, it’s time to write again about sports. I strongly support TSC’s philosophy–democratizing voice by giving everybody a chance to write.
