AIFF 2011: Tears and Laughter in Ashland

user
A pre-dawn dusting of snow fell on southern Oregon, wrapping Ashland like a gift.  Morning’s bright sun melted white back to green to reveal the start of the 10th Ashland Independent Film Festival.  By midday, the endless crisp, blue sky instead hung low, grey, and ominous.  A freakish snow squall swirled around the queue in front of the Varsity waiting for the first slate of films, then the clouds lifted and the world shone bright again. Those changes - from cheery to dreary and b...

THEATRICAL TRAILER FOR "ETHAN" IS POSTED ON FEST21 AND A NEW ACTRESS DEMO REEL IS COMPLETED

user
The theatrical trailer for ETHAN, a short film I recently completed, has been posted on Fest21. It can be viewed by going to the USER VIDEOS section of my profile page. This was a challenging project. The short film, ETHAN, is five minutes long. The challenge was to pull out a trailer without giving away the story. I think it came out good. The trailer is less than a minute long. Unfortunately the short film will not be available for viewing for a while due to the rules placed by many film f...

OK Go - Needing Getting Music Video

OK Go- Needing Getting Over five years after OK Go became a YouTube sensation with the video for ‘Here it Goes Again’ (more commonly known as the ‘treadmill video’), the LA-based four piece are back with their unique brand of freewheeling eccentricity – only this time on a much larger scale. ‘Needing Getting’ is like the older, more ambitious brother of ‘Here It Goes Again’.

Her first album, Born To Die, was recently released in late January and consists of 12 “Hollywood Sadcore” style tracks: tales of dark yet beautifully twisted love stories. The single of the album, Born to Die, recounts a relationship that is far from perfect yet eternally addictive, made even more dramatic by the haunting and emoti...
