REACH Project

The adult students at REACH downtown are creating their first ever art exhibit. From painting refrigerator boxes to making mobiles to creating pinch pots, these artists are working towards an incredible installation based on the broad idea of a neighborhood.

REACH would like to document this creative process and seeks volunteers who can help capture and edit the footage for a final film to be used as part of gallery walk for the first Friday of December.

National Film Challenge

The Alaska Robotics filmmaking team will be working on an entry for the National Film Challenge from Friday the 20th through Monday the 23rd. If you have some free time during the weekend and you’re interested in participating please send me an email with contact info, times you’re available and what sort of role you’d like.

We have no idea what kind of film we’re going to be making until Friday night when we get our theme but at the very least I suspect we’ll need some actors, extras, musicians, lighting crew, catering, stunt drivers, explosive experts, helicopter pilots, scientists, illustrators, transportation crew, script supervisors and some big lugs to cart around the camera gear.

Northwest and Anchorage Film Festivals

Congratulations to Juneau Filmmaker Greg Chaney!!! His film “Hero’s Journey” has been accepted to the Anchorage International Film Festival as part of the Snowdance program. Greg has also completed a feature length documentary on the Gold Medal Basketball Tournament and is in the process of submitting it to festivals.

Congratulations to Juneau Filmmaker Joel Bennett!!! His film “Catfish Man” has been selected as one of thirty-two short films for the Northwest Film Festival. Bennett’s film was the only short selected from Alaska and one of only six films coming from outside the art hubs of Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver. This will be the second time one of Joel’s films has played in this Festival.


Happy Alaska Day! Have fun drinking blue beer and pinching your friends!
