Tulalip Film Festival

Filmmaking - Film Festivals and Seminars

I am honored and delighted to be teaching filmmaking up at the Tulalip Education Center, and jurying at the Tulalip Film Festival, all this week.

The class is going to be fun. We'll be making a whole little movie, stem to stern, using what's available, with a dedicated newbie crew.

In the festival, there'll be a screening of the selected films at the Historic Theatre in Everett WA.

Daniel Jones and Stephen Jimenez are running things at the college.

They're such nice and knowledgeable guys, the students are receptive and enthusiastic, there's good press, and I'm talking about my favorite topic.

It couldn't be better.

Update: We got our movie done, screened some 20 films, gave out a bunch of awards at our awards ceremony. It was great, and I'm happy to have done it. Here's what the papers said.

My thanks to Robin Carneen and her great radio show, the "NAMAPAHH First People's Radio" broadcast.

Robin interviewed me and Ramon Murillo, native artist and dancer from our film, at the festival.

Robin also interviewed Daniel and Stephen, and Daniel and his wife Lena, and their creative sons, Derek and Aaron Jones.
