New Film-Paperhand Puppet Intervention



Today has been really exiting for the new film by myself and Coe Doulas. It was uploaded to current.tv yesturday and climbed to the #2 film in less than 24 hours. Coe and I have had a great time putting this short film “Paperhand Puppet Intervention, Activists in Their Community“together. We had  help from Christian Parsons and Carolyn de Berry in making the project happen. We first talked to Donovan at Paperhand in the winter, so it has taken almost 8 months to get this completed. Thanks to Jan Burger and Donovan Zimmerman at Paperhand  Puppet Intervention for having us in their studio and for talking about the experiences. They have a great show in progress now please support these guys. Also thank you to everyone who has voted our film up in the current.tv count.

48 hour Film Project Award for Our Film

Our Film “The Hourglass” won an award for best Art Direction. As I said before we had a great team and everyone worked really hard. The shoot day was long and very hot, then came the edit. We were ahead on our edit plan and went home to sleep. 

A great time was had by all. I do wish we had not been to busy to shoot production stills.

Time-Lapse Greensboro

One afternoon in May  I stepped out of the studio and a heavy cloud cover start rolling in from the southeast. I knew then that the shoot for our movie “Camelback Bridge” had to be cancelled. Now with a free afternoon I thought I would go downtown and shoot a time-lapse of the clouds. This is the outcome.

Paperhand Puppet Documentary in Production





  
    We continued production today on a short documentary on Paperhand Puppet Intervention. Artists Donovan Zimmermen and Jan Burger create very cool and often very large puppets. For 10 years they have been using collected stuff and corn starch to build these constructions. They bring them to life by creating plays and art events based on environmental, social, and political themes. 
    Coe Douglas and I are co-producing a short film on Jan and Donovan and their work. Today we shot the main interview and B-roll footage with the help of  Christian Parsons, 2nd camera, and Carolyn Deberry, production manager. It was a very inspiring day in  in the heart of Saxapahaw.
   To find out more about Paperhand visit their website.

New Project for Mohawk Flooring






   Last night (actually early this morning) we finished shooting a new commercial for Mohawk Flooring.  We had a great cast of 3, crew of 23, plus 5 dogs for a 9 hour shoot. We shot a large beautiful set with 2 rooms and then converted the set. The shoot was done with a Varicam on a Jimmy Jib built at 18 feet. The dogs added so much life and action to the look and feel and gave the actors great action to play off of, thanks to Bonnie and friends. Everyone worked really hard through the night to make this project look it’s best. Here are a few excellent production shots by our trusty RCC intern Carolyn.

Horne Creek


This is a nice place for a day visit and a chance to see a what an early 20-th century working farm was like.   I always like these photos from inside the house I am drawn to the simplicity of the setting. Visit there web site to learn more. The site is off of Highway 52 south of Mt. Airy NC.
