Final graduation at Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD), where I’ve served as professor of screenwriting since 2009. The University’s shuttering its doors, and once I move out of my faculty office in June, I’ll be 100% back to the freelance life. My faculty colleagues and I feel we accomplished a lot, and alumni from the past decade are now busy forging their lives and careers. It’s been a great ride, and one I’ll always treasure.
In the meantime (while I do some traveling and then start packing up the office), I’d love to invite you to check out the independent feature film I’m writing and co-producing: 2-WAY. Head to the website, then jump on the social media links and like/follow our feeds (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram: whatever flavor(s) you like). Final chapter on SFUAD in June, once I’m out of the office…
Sadly, 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.
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.
