Summertime, Funtime

I know, I know we’ve been awol from our weekly blogging for a while now. I’m sorry, but it is summer and with summer comes all kinds of fun. Our fun began with volunteering to document ComFest. While I, personally, did not get to spend as much time at ComFest, Matt did spend three days running from stage to stage. In addition to the whole day at documenting, our CMIAR screenings have been added to the shelter house shows. This adds community exposure to some of the artists that have exhibited over the past year.

After ComFest we begin shifting our gears toward the Columbus International Film Festival. For the past three years we ‘ve been chairing the judging of the student division. And so now it begins – watching hours of films and rating them for the festival. This proves to be hours of fun, getting together with the jurors and spending hours enjoying snacks, discussion, and films.
During all these extra curriculur activities we have to keep up on our work for clients as well as our personal art work. While we’ve been a little lax in the latter this year, we did submit to the Ohio State Fair Fine Arts Film division. We both were awarded the Greater Columbus Arts Council (GCAC) Awards for our avant garde work. Matt, for his piece City Lights and me for my multi-screen version of my City Walks, which included New Orleans, Cedar Rapids, Columbus, and Allentown.
A busy summer of exciting things – and it’s only half over. Maybe we’ll be able to throw in a few City Walks and some other new work, find some more cool experiences, and maybe catch a summertime drive-in or two.
