Retire for the Evening

I had the great pleasure of working with a fresh, young Director named Ed Hellman earlier this year on both his short entitled “Retire for the Evening” as well as the spin off music video of the same name.  “Retire for the evening” is the story of a ventriloquist’s puppet who attempts to continue the act after his partner dies.  Carla Rhodes , who plays the main character’s mom in the short,  initiated the making of the music video for her song “Retire for the evening.  Here are two video stills form the music video and 2 from the short below.  Look out for both later this year.

A Place of Truth

A Place of Truth, the feature doc that I shot with director Barrett Rudich over the past two years,  screens tomorrow (August 2nd 11a.m.) at the Landmark theater in Baltimore, MD.   Admission is free.  We were able to test screen this morning.  The film is an emotionally compelling and sometimes quirky portrait of Abi Mott, a 21 year old woman traveling from city to city, living life and learning the craft of a nomadic street poet.
