Interurban



Just got back from the Interurban Film Festival. Screened The Texas Sun on Saturday.

The Rialto Theatre is classic -- it goes back to 1920. Denison is also great, and was hosting an arts festival, so we strolled Main Street in between blocks of films.

I was interviewed about the festival and about "The Texas Sun" by the Herald Democrat:

Interurban Film Festival offers rewarding experience to viewers, filmmakers
Filmmaker Ted Fisher submitted his six-minute documentary “The Texas Sun.” Because his love for film making has taken him and his family around the country, he said the sun was noticeably different in Texas and thought it would be interesting to see what others thought about the fiery ball in the sky.

“When we came to Texas, we noticed that the sun itself was a little different than we were used to living in other states and that we had a different relationship with it. We would walk and it was more intense in some places so we started thinking of it as a person,” Fisher said. “The documentary has a lot of people talking about their relationship with the Texas sun as if it’s a friend or maybe more than a friend and their loves and hates about the sun.”

"Dry" Screens at the Miniature Film Festival



My 60-second, 100-word film "Dry" will screen in Vancouver at the Miniature Film Festival on Wednesday, March 30, 2016.

The festival is all about 60-second films:
The Miniature Film Festival is exactly what it sounds like - a small celebration of small films. We want to acknowledge and promote filmmakers who make one-minute micro short films. We definitely aren't trying to pass ourselves off as a bigger festival because we are not big at all. We are a new start-up festival that wants to help create a community for tiny films and the ingenious filmmakers who make them - a miniature festival for miniature films!
