Every second Saturday at the Space Upstairs they perform with local Jazz musicians and other inspirational elements. The event is an experience completely different and original every time. Help shape the environment tomorrow night at Construction Junction in Point Breeze.

Last day of filming

Today I finished working on a short film set in Columbus, Ohio. The idea for the short came to me a few months back in April or May. Through the summer I slowly assembled a crew of people I’d met, seen in the community and found through craigslist. We started filming about a month or two ago and have finally finished. It took about 30 rolls of 35mm film and roughly 4-2hour days to shoot. I am so happy with my crew, Mathilda Longfellow, http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001610626056, Miharu Kato, http://www.miharukato.dphoto.com/ and Sarah Achor, http://www.sarahjeanfineart.com/. Now I have to get the music from cellist Kelly Quesada who is studying in Portland Oregon and I have to edit the photos together and the movie is pretty much done! So exciting. We are already planning the second short film and hope to have a few short films that we can compile into one longer film that may or may not represent something or some idea we’ll see. emphasis on art.
