For me, the joy of the Whiteman Brothers exceeds their relentless humor and permeates into an even better place. A place where I remember that this–making movies and art, etc.–is just as much about having fun as it is for any other reason I could conjure.
In all their prolific glory, and as part of their series on a movie a day for 29 days (first brought to you in 2008, and back again for the latest leap year), Sean a Christof brought me one step closer to my dreams of becoming Portland’s premier split-screen actress.
Here it is, the Valentine’s Day special of a lifetime:
While tweaking RACHEL, RYAN, JAMIE & KATIE the other day, I got a little side tracked. Intending to participate in some office spirit, I made an entry for the Film Center’s MAKE IT SHORT contest. There’s basically one rule, it has to be 40 seconds or less (in honor of the Film Center’s 40th anniversary season).
So, using some already acquired footage, I give you Katie… or PARTY GURL.
I gave you a sneak peak at the TWOMP screening last month (also a kind of sneak peak in itself for that film), but coming to you again–and this time not on a sheet!–I give you RACHEL, RYAN, JAMIE & KATIE.
Join me and some other incredible makers at the Northwest Film Center on January 26th, 7 PM. It’s part of the Movers & Makers screening of shorts, and if we’re buddies I can probably make it free!
Now all I need to do is finish some sound work on it this weekend!
On Thursday December 29th, please join me for a screening of “The World of Missing Persons”! This film I produced for writer/director Travis Ezell is still a work-in-progress, but we’re excited to be showing it before the new year. The screening will feature other works by cast and crew, which means I got the chance to sneak “Rachel, Ryan, Jamie & Katie”, a film I co-wrote and directed with Shawn Sullivan and Liz Lewis, into the mix.
It’s a fun (free) night of shorts at the Waypost Cafe on N. Williams. 7 PM.
Recently we wrapped on writer/director Michael Roberson’s short film Rossum.
I worked on set as AC, my husband Michael as the still photographer (his lovely image is seen below and if you follow the Rossum link above you’ll find more). I am really excited to see this whole project come together at the premiere in October! Stay tuned, I’ll have some behind the scenes footage. Until then check out the FB page. Oh, did I mention Michael and I had the opportunity to act in the commercial which appears in this film. Really terrific stuff!
