Cabin Fever Arts Festival
I’ll be putting on another digital film workshop for the Cabin Fever Arts Festival this year and I’m inviting people to send me one scene special effects challenges I can assemble for the workshop.

If you’ve always dreamed of seeing a giant Frank Murkowski clinging to the top of the capital building while swatting at biplanes, now’s your chance. I’ll take the suggestion I like the best and show you how to make it happen at the workshop.

I’ll also be offering some kind of intro to editing workshop for those who are just trying to get started with digital filmmaking.

If you or anyone you know has a short, one day workshop they would like to host for the arts festival please contact the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council.

Have a great day and we’ll see you at the film festival.
