Three filmmakers, three short films, three genres: fiction, visual poem, documentary.

It was negative 50 degrees in January 2012. Tal Fletcher and Grant Korgan were freezing, uncomfortable and halfway across the southern polar plateau. When warm enough to talk, they wondered how any movie could do justice to the intensity of their experience. On Nov. 4, “The Push” will screen to two sold-out houses at Fletcher’s “hometown” theater, The Lark. Not only did Fletcher guide Korgan on his successful expedition to become the first spinal cord-injured athlete to “push” himself on a sit ski for nearly 100 miles to the South Pole, but they became an award-winning producer-director team. “The Push” has won 11 awards to date, including the best documentary prize at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. https://www.marinij.com/2018/10/28/filmmaker-treks-from-marin-roots-to-south-pole/

The first day of shooting is always chaotic, and generally comes soon enough that you wish you had more time to prepare.  But just because you haven’t had as much time as you might like in preproduction, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t hit the ground running on the first day of principal...
If you’re a filmmaker, you’re probably thinking about how you can get your next project made.  For your first few projects, that’s fine.  You’ve got to figure out what sort of stories you want to tell, and what your personal style is.  However, you should also be thinking about how to...
Last week I wrote about how despite this company being primarily run by two CisHet white guys, we still think that diversity in film and media is absolutely vital.  Well, the same is still true, but our advisory board is 100% female, so we practice what we preach when it comes to the topic of...
