Craig’s Smile

Screen Shot 2014-05-17 at 9.08.17 PM A video showcasing an amazing Vancouver resident who does not let his disabilities define who he is.

Co-produced by Cristi Jenkins and Anni Becker, this work was made as the final project for our video class. We wanted to capture the heart behind the beautiful man that many in the Vancouver public library community love and cherish.  Anni and I both know Craig from our years of working with him at the Fort Vancouver Regional Library. A special thank you to Fabrizio Paterlini and Jamie for the use of their music.

The Fifth Element Class Project

The fifth element against a dark night sky

This is a class project made in Adobe Flash where I combined my photographs with the recorded sounds emanating from inside volcanic lava tubes in Hawaii. Those organic sounds are juxtaposed with music by Kai Engel.

I wanted to capture the mystique behind the film’s premise that evil returns to earth every five thousand years from deep space. Left unchecked, the destructive force is destined to destroy earth unless the fifth element is unleashed, thus defeating the threat to earth’s well-being.

A special thank-you to Milton A. Garces at the University of Hawaii for giving permission to use the lava tube recordings. A thank-you to Kal Engel for the use of his music. “Nothing Lasts Forever.”
