I earned a BA in film studies and film production with a concentration in experimental, documentary, and animation. I make art films as well as use filmmaking frequently in my research. To see my films and videos, click here.
Recent experimental reflection on my research trip to Cuba:
In addition to making film, and working for college and community film festivals, such as Visions Film Festival and Cucalorus Film Festival (both are fantastic!), I founded a film festival and community organization dedicated to fostering fun and absurdly humorous film experiences.
Creator and Director 2008 - 2011
The CS (Chips and Salsa; Cheese Sandwich) Film Festivals were an initiative to promote community filmmaking. Each festival had a theme and required entries to be 3 minutes or less. Local colleges with film programs added CS Film Festivals to their curriculums. Also, local film cooperatives would team together to make films.
The festivals would provide free food from local business, and all proceeds were donated to The Good Shepard Food Kitchen and Cucalorus Film Festival.
