Dreaming of Spirit Animals features the work of Pacific Northwest artist, Cappy Thompson and her process of creating a large scale public art piece (the largest painted glass window in existence)for the Sea-Tac airport addition. The documentary explores Thompson’s unique relationship to the function of narrative and autobiography in glass art as well as her interest in dreams and mythology and her methods of incorporating diverse inspirations for her glass work (including Sufistories, Persian folktales and Native American myths). The painting and fabrication of the 90 ‘ x 33′ piece was completed at a family-run glass studio in Germany. The film was shot in Seattle and Taunusstein-Wehen, Germany and incorporates digital video, digital stills, and time lapse videography. Crew included: Sally Cloninger (Co-Producer, Editor and Cinematographer), Peter Randlette (Co-Producer and Sound Design), Gretchen Langheld (Original Music), and Allegra Hinkle (additional camera, post-production). 2004 (33:00)
