This year I've worked on a number of projects, including Disregard The Vampire (Dir. Mike Messier), Amor Sangre (Dir. Geena Matuson), I Am Monroe? (Dir. Jocelyn Padilla), the RAW Artist Showcase with my films on the wall, and my acceptance into the PH21 Gallery Show in Budapest - but that's not all!
And here was a surprise - I was nominated by NewEnglandFilm.com to be a Stowe Story Labs Fellow, and I hadn't even submitted an application prior to the nomination! I didn't end up applying to the Fellowship, but it was an incredible honor to be nominated.
A few months ago I was given a push towards updating my Artist CV and Resume - and a little website revamp! And, with all of the marketing work and website design I've recently delved into - such as Dee Cohen's artist site, and Michael Shapiro's Photography site - I've added Marketing, Branding and Advertising to my resume.
I may end up adding a 'Crew Member' section to my resume if I start working on film sets, such as my two-day venture onto the set of Black Beauty last month, but right now I'm focused on writing, website work, and other collaborative projects.
In fact, I'll soon be creating a new website for Weis-Buy Farms Inc., and I'm currently working on the social media, marketing and website for the high-energy jazz band 'TickleJuice' led by James Merenda! I've completed the band's social media setup (they're even on Tumblr), and I'll soon dive into the website.
My work was featured in the MassArt Made Holiday Sale last week, as well, and I made more sales this event than I have at previous MassArt sales!
And now on shelves, you can find my feature in the Fall/Winter 2014 edition of 'Polished' magazine! The interview, written by writer and editor Ashleigh Copeland, covers my work, my thoughts on art, and a bit about myself. I've read the fantastic article, and can't wait to share it!
I've also been learning more about trademark and copyright over the last few months. In fact, I've registered my work for the film 'Amor Sangre,' a project I executive produced and project managed, and for which I wrote the final script used for production, among many other jobs and tasks. The film's post-production is currently halted, but rest assured, you'll be updated when the film's production is underway.
