kaboom director brandon dickerson will enjoy the World Premiere of his independent feature film SIRONIA at the Austin Film Festival held October 20-27, 2011. The film is the inaugural feature for Dickerson and producing partner kaboom productions. SIRONIA features Wes Cunningham, Amy Acker, Tony Hale, Robyn Lively, Jeremy Sisto and Carrie Preston in a story about a musician’s search for authenticity and purpose.

Inspired by the music of singer-songwriter Wes Cunningham, SIRONIA is the story of a talented musician who has been chewed up and spit out by the Hollywood music machine. Frustrated by his broken career, Thomas Fisher and his wife Molly impulsively pack up and move to small town Sironia, Texas to live a more authentic life and raise their first child near Molly's brother and his family. Despite the change of scenery, Thomas's deep resentment over his lost dreams gets the best of him as he struggles to find peace with his stalled career, until he remembers what he loved about music - and Molly - in the first place.
