What keeps me from even thinking about the political struggles of Capitol Hill is my focus on the life and death struggles in the Salish Sea. Working on a project like this means being immersed in its moving parts day-in, day-out, 24/7.
Right now, I'm filled with stories of fish and dolphin. From what I hear, it's a blessing, really, not to have the news of the day put me in a funk.
Life goes on... death and extinct don't slow down, even for Congress.
I've just finished the rough edit for a teaser trailer intended for fundraising.
It plays like a mystery, which is, after all, what the film is at heart. I am pleased with its look and now have given it into the hands of our composer, Peyton Winterowd-Laughman, who will score it.
This marks the first time as a filmmaker that I have not scored my own video. That's a frightening handing-off of creative control.
But Peyton is super-talented and I know whatever she'll do would be worlds better than my half-deaf, tin-eared attempt.
At some point soon I intend to update this site with a few short bio's of the crew. For now, just take my word for it, this film is benefiting from some of the most creative folks I've ever known.
