L66MileRadius screening posterast minute notice, but I’ll be moderating a free post-screening Q&A with New Mexico documentary filmmaker Melinda Frame (principal of Frame+Work) and Santa Fe University of Art and Design faculty colleague (and Outdoor Vision Fest collaborator) Tom Miller this Monday, November 20, 1pm, at The Screen (SFUAD’s arthouse cinematheque).

The screening is of Melinda’s new documentary “66 Mile Radius“, which documents an art exhibition of the same title at Albuquerque’s renowned Tamarind Institute, a nonprofit center for fine art lithography. (You can view the trailer here.)

L.A. Traveling

Always the preferred airport if you’re flying in and out of L.A. Easy to navigate, lots of history, and these days with Peet’s as its official coffee purveyor in Terminal A. Wouldn’t mind a Vino Volo inside Terminal A as well; a nice addition when catching the last flight home… (I think about airports more than I should.)

Morning view from the balcony of the Carole Lombard/Clark Gable room in a charming, timeless Central Coast hotel that takes you back to the 1940s. Lombard and Gable actually did stay in this hotel, and it’s reasonably likely they stayed in this room, a nicely hidden hideaway a few hours from L.A.

Continuing On For One Final Year at SFUAD

BorstAtSFUADSadly, Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD) has announced its closure in 2018. With the academic year having recently concluded, I’ve been asked to stay on as a full-time professor in The Film School (where I’ve been teaching since 2009) for one final year — to ensure that seniors finish their BFA degree program.

I’m tremendously proud of the initiatives we launched and cultivated during my time at SFUAD: Outdoor Vision Fest® (OVF) and Shoot the Stars!®. OVF, of course, spun off into an astonishing number of directions, and had a real, long-lasting impact in Santa Fe and beyond.

OVF® 2017 – It’s a Wrap!

DCIM100SPORT
“Ruben’s Tube” installation (Kyle Sherling & Bryce Warren). Play the keyboard, and control the play of gas jets. A particularly appropriate installation when temperatures hover around freezing.

Despite bone-chilling temperatures, a couple of inches of snow already on the ground (April 28 — that’s right!), and the threat of more snow coming, Outdoor Vision Fest® 2017 launched and filled 2+ hours of the evening with interactive media installations, a beautiful piece of new choreography combined with projections, augmented reality, and more. This year’s event had a particularly scrappy feel (as student artists relocated to more protected locations and tried avoiding the occasional raindrops), but showcased some of the most interactive media work we’ve done yet.
