After more than a year, I am finally working on a new film The Layers, based on a poem by Stanley Kunitz. I have been taking an Avant-Garde & Experimental Filmmaking class at Austin School of Film, which focuses on using super 8 cameras for filming content. We shot on black & white film and hand developed it ourselves! We also studied many awesome filmmaker artists who I admire.

I’ll also be in a screening for the first time since 2020, in an exhibition of our class’s super 8 films on December 9. Deets here – it’s free to view in-person at ASoF or via zoom: https://austinfilmschool.org/experimental-film-showcase

Here are some early stills of the film. The final film will be available online after the screening.
