The first time I came to Santa Fe as a Visiting Professor of Screenwriting, more than a decade ago, I (like nearly every tourist) visited the City Different’s beloved Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe (typically known as the Santuario), the ancient Catholic church set along the Santa Fe River. Built at about the time the Declaration of Independence was being signed, the chapel served Santa Fe’s poor farmers alongside the river bank just west of downtown, and was devoted specifically to Our Lady of Guadalupe — whose own semiotics knits together Indian, Spanish, and Mexican cultural identities and puts a distinctly New World stamp on Catholicism.
Our 5th outing of Outdoor Vision Fest™ attracted its biggest crowd to date (see the handy-dandy chart at the bottom of this post), and despite a few glitches, garnered essentially universal acclaim on Twitter and Instagram.
In case you missed last week’s “Cinema Scope” broadcast on KSFR-FM, you can download the podcast version and get 15 minutes of great Outdoor Vision Fest™ talk with Professor Tom Miller, Studio Arts major Victoria Medina, and myself. We talk about many of the upcoming installations, including the Make Santa Fe makerspace pop-up that Victoria and student artist Victor Rojas are contributing to. Get a filmic perspective on OVF 2015 with affable host Stu Goswick.
Missed my appearance on “The Richard Eeds Show” this morning? You’re in luck: the broadcast has been archived, and you can find myself along with Studio Arts Professor Tom Miller discussing all things Outdoor Vision Fest with the affable radio host (first time either of us had been on Eeds’ show). We’re on the 10am segment and occupy most of the hour: an unusually lengthy time to discuss some of the installations and some of the night’s ambience.
Continuing the media blitz this week: Studio Arts Professor Tom Miller joins me on the airwaves again, this Tuesday, April 28, at 10am MDT. We’ll tag-team Santa Fe’s drivetime morning broadcast “The Richard Eeds Show,” which airs on KVSF-101.5FM in northern New Mexico. Naturally, we’ll be talking about all things Outdoor Vision Fest™ (OVF). With nearly 50 installations scheduled to launch the night of May 1, we don’t run out of things to talk about. If you can’t get near a radio or if you’re outside of the immediate broadcast area, you can still livestream the broadcast.
(Don’t forget: you can vote for OVF as “Best (Event) of Santa Fe” — through May 3. And we’d be so appreciative of your vote…)
And in case you missed my appearance (with talented student artist Chris Beran) on KVSF-FM‘s “The Julia Goldberg Show” this past Friday (discussing Outdoor Vision Fest™, of course) you can catch it here: we’re 30+ minutes into the show.
The Santa Fe Reporter gave Outdoor Vision Fest™ a nice shoutout in its latest issue, and quoted yours truly along with my esteemed professorial colleague Brad Wolfley. A very cool new installation, “Transcendence,” gets some of the spotlight, along with our very creative students making work.
This is a great chance to again advocate a vote for Outdoor Vision Fest™ as the “Best (Event or Festival) of Santa Fe” in the Reporter‘s annual “Best Of” competition — I would be personally very appreciative of the vote, and you don’t even need to be a Santa Fe resident to vote!
Studio Arts major Victoria Medina and Studio Arts Professor Tom Miller join me on this week’s “Cinema Scope,” hosted by Stu Goswick and airing on Santa Fe Public Radio KSFR, 101.1FM, this Friday, April 24, at 6:30pm MDT — to once again talk about Outdoor Vision Fest™. The 14-minute segment is at the top of the broadcast, and we have time to talk about a number of the installations that will comprise OVF this year. You can listen live to the over-the-air broadcast here, even if you’re far away from Santa Fe…
SFUAD Photo major Chris Beran (who performs often as VJ Buran and Buran) joins me on the eponymous “Julia Goldberg Show” this Friday, April 24, at about 11:30am MDT on KVSF 101.5FM — to once again talk about Outdoor Vision Fest™. Our big rehearsal was last night, and incredibly exciting installations continue to evolve… We’ll have the latest about all of that. Listen to the live stream if you’re outside the broadcast area.
