Currently attending the David Lynch Master's In Film Program, Coffeen's debut short film "Happy Medium" premiered at The Huntington and subsequently traveled to the Portland Art Museum. Happy Medium was commissioned as an introduction to artist John Frame and to capture Frame's transition from sculpture to stop-motion animation. He also edited Frame's first film "Three Fragments of a Lost Tale" as well as assisted with the animation. He was Assistant Editor on critically-acclaimed "Short Term 12", winner of Best Film at the SXSW Film Festival and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Editing.
Johnny's currently in pre-production for his master's thesis film "iDream" about an inventor who programs his ex-wife into his dreams. In order to make the project a reality, he has to raise $5,000 by April 2015. Anything you can donate will surely help (and please spread the word)! Even if all you can do is forward this message to other people who might be interested or post the following link on your Facebook page, that would be greatly appreciated: paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=8L2DNMJF9EW2L
