  • Higher Education, a short 16mm film, is being prepared for release to silent and experimental film festivals this year. Higher Education originated on 16 mm black & white film. It was self-financed and shot side by side with my 16 mm cinematography students. Media Arts, completed 12/15/2016.
  • I am currently completing work on Traverse, a film and multi-media project that investigates the relationship between Film, Dance, and the Landscape and seeks to contribute to a conversation about convergence, the special interdisciplinary nature of dance and new media, and the impact of new technologies in electronic cinematography. The work is funded by a Dee grant for the arts and humanities. I am the Principal Investigator. I am working with my colleagues Eric Handman, Modern Dance; and Connie Wilkerson, Chris Lee, and Alex Lee, Film and Media Arts. Additionally, I am finishing a short film, Ibex Well, resulting from assets acquired during the Traverse project. Ibex Well will play with other films on February 16, 2017 at the UMFA as part of their "Artlandish" series. Media Arts, in progress 06/24/2016.
