Still at it...

April 21st...

Boy have I had a tough week or two! First my site goes down, a domain issue, and once I resolve that, the domain folks lose my DNS server names and they don't bother to let me know. When I finally got hold of them, found out the problem, got hold of my web master, got the numbers... any way it was a mess. I am finally up and back.

The tour is going great! Arizona and Texas were a ball, I had some great screenings at the Alamo Draft House in Houston, my work shops went well, and it was good to see some old friends. From there Moses and I went to Grand Rapids, MI for a guest lecture and a self distribution work shop.

I did Rochester, NY at RIT. I went from doing just a Visiting Artist gig to 4 class lectures over 3 days. Not bad... After that I hung out with friends in Mass then off to Kensington, MD for a sound design workshop and a screening. A small but enthusiastic group. Even though we had a brief power outage during the movie everyone stayed until the end.

It's interesting traveling with my dog Moses, I think he keeps me sane. I now have to stop every couple hours when I am driving so we can get out and walk around for awhile. He is digging staying at hotels, thank God he can't dial room service...

I am now taking a few days off and Moses and I have driven to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It's beautiful here. We are a block from the Atlantic.

I have a question I keep wondering about. When people show up for my work shops they keep telling me that they haven't had time to check out my site. If you are going to pay someone to take a class, wouldn't you check them out on more than just their flyer? I know I would...

Upcoming dates...

May 3rd & 4th Kansas City, MO-- Kansas City Filmmakers
May 8th-11th Sioux City, IA -- Filmmaker in Residence -- Sioux City Art Center (also a screening)
May 20 Baltimore, MD-- Creative Alliance Workshop during the day & a Screening at the Third Floor that evening.
May 27th -- Harrisburg, PA -- Arts Fest screening of Kicking Bird.

I am still filling in dates so contact me if you want me.
