Screenings

Big announcement coming on June 9th!

NFFTY

In late April, I visited Seattle for the National Film Festival For Talented Youth (NFFTY), seeing family, some old friends, and screening As Beautiful Inside. In addition, three films I sound designed - Buckets, Hell You Talmbout, and Crop - also screened there. Buckets won Best Narrative Short and Hell You Talmbout won an audience award. Pictures below.

Sonoma International Film Festival

Ian, me, and my family flew to San Francisco to attend the world premiere of As Beautiful Inside at Sonoma International Film Festival in late March. Saw many sights and drank a lot of wine. Pictures below.

First Night Out is part of the Creatively Connected Online Film Festival, put on by the Foundation for Arts & Healing. The festival seeks to highlight public health concerns. This year's theme is loneliness and isolation.
