Last week we filmed a video for the PDX WAV program for the City of Portland for Parachute Strategies.
Here's AC Sika Stanton working with DP Sean Conley in between scenes.

This summer, I directed (and in some cases shot) a series of shorts written by queer, Latinx youth for a local non-profit called Outside the Frame. It was part of a project by Professor Jon Garcia at OSU designed to help queer, Latinx youth feel less isolated. What a fun set of films to work on! So much creativity and courage expressed by these young adults.
The films will screen at the upcoming Annual Gala for Outside the Frame at the Hollywood Theater. So grateful to have been part of it.
Magnificent is on the festival circuit. After winning Best LGBTQ Short at Oregon Independent Film Festival, we screened at Tacoma Film Festival last week. Next we're on to Indie Short Festival in LA!
I recently finished directing/editing a short doc for the Sierra Club about the passage of the Portland Clean Energy Fund. It was an incredible honor to work on this project and to see the people working behind the scenes to not just make our city better, but to also lead the way for others with this innovative initiative. It's innovative in its green policy, but also, innovative in that it was led by people of color.
We'll be submitting to festivals and ultimately releasing the video online. Stay tuned for more. Thanks to DP Sean Conley.
