In the Current / Nourish

Yokohama, Japan. February 2013.


Every once in a while, I get to do some graphic design. These are poster designs I did to advertise In The Current and Nourish, new conferences for international school counselors and to encourage well-being in the school community, respectively. The pomegranates in the Nourish poster are not my photographs. I’ve used them under Creative Commons attribution and share-alike licenses.

Eat the Frog

This is a short screenplay I wrote a few years back to talk about script-writing with students in the filmmaking club at my school. One of the challenges for student filmmakers is that they tend to think in terms of big budget, two-hour films which are very difficult for them to produce convincingly. The idea of this script was to write something that had some decent story to film, a bit of range for the actors to play, used accessible locations, but allowed for enough creative interpretation that students could put their mark on it. Some students are shooting a version of it this year, so I look forward to seeing what they do with it.

Liver and Onions

Haven’t made a film in a while, but had the chance recently. As part of a campaign to help kids recognize and celebrate their gifts, we put out a call for spoken-word poems. This one was written by James Midgley, to the prompt of sudden beauty, the idea that sometimes what is most beautiful and powerful in us is not the most obvious to see, but profound when discovered. Filmmaking is fun.

Chao Phraya, Over Under

This is an image I made thinking of a piece I had seen in the market. The one I’d seen in the market was not for sale, and I couldn’t find out who the artist was, but I loved the idea of it and started playing around with what I thought might have been done in it. This is the result.
The photos were taken on a Long-Boat tour off the Chao Phraya river and in Jatujak market. Each section of the image was treated through Poladroid imagining software (it’s free!).
Hope you like it.
