              Frederico Fellini's unmade film ll Viaggio di G. Mastorna Detto Fernet became a graphic novel, just before Fellini's death in 1993. This is the story of how that came to be, as told by long time Fellini collaborator and illustrator for ll Viaggio di G. Mastorna, Milo Manera. Combining still photography and moving images, the piece which was produced in conjunction with Fabrica, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2011. The short is anchored by an interview with Milo Minara shot entirely in stills. The interview discusses his personal take on the main existentialist themes of the book; this interview has been intercut with the actual graphic novel and what appears to be the lost footage (via recreation) of the story's first scene. This short doc is an exploration into dreams and fantasy, moving through different realities. Shot between Milan, Italy and Koln, Germany. Director: Chelsea McMullan Executive Producer: FABRICA Producer: Derek Howard, Omid Fatemi Production Company: FABRICA in conjunction with WHAT MATTERS MOST Principal Cast: Milo Manara Screenplay: Chelsea McMullan Cinematographer: Derek Howard Editor: Pablo Pastor Sound: Grant Edmonds Music: Ted Bois Production Designer: Leanne MacKay Photography Stills: Margo Ovcharemko

                Shot on color 16mm film the music video for "Big" wraps Sneaky Sound System's massive dance anthem in a 'run 'n' gun' cinema verite style moving from the high rise vista of a grand hotel suite to the bright lights of the Las Vegas streets.Powerhouse singer Miss Connie Mitchell is captured against the evening sky of the desert and the blasts of color and light so iconic to Sin City. We see her, and producer-in-arms Black Angus McDonald, move through scenes that are loving homages to the 80's and its decadent pop sensibilities. Light and uncontrived, with no narrative "Big" seeks to capture the spontaneous and uplifting spirit of Sneaky Sound System.

                  • 2014 Christmas Card


                    from Christopher M. Jones / Added

                    In the two years leading up to Mitchell's death, he would come up to me and say, "Dad, can I help you make a Christmas video?" He didn't know how to make graphics or edit video, so he would just sit next to me and talk while I put things together. Mitch would help direct the flow and wanted each video to end with a magic Christmas tree. I miss him being my co-pilot. I wish I had more time to do things like this, not because they're terribly interesting but because they're fun to make and they remind me of the time I spent with Mitch. Though clunky, this less-than-polished piece will have to do. In this video you'll see a short update on our family. The opening narrative in the video reads: Let me tell you a story this cold winter's eve ... About a little family huddled together, long after the fallen leaves. It's a simply story. Not very profound. Just a story of a family And where love can be found. So cuddle up and listen close, and well share some things we love the most. At approximately 1:40 you will see clips and photos of Mitchell's last Christmas and the wonderful things people did to lift his heart and let him know he was loved. Doing the things he loved to do ... Thank you Grandma Jerri. Enjoying time with family ... Thank you Grandpa & Grandma Rees. Having a surprise visit by one of his heroes ... Thank you Russ Dixon. The warm hearts .... thank you Brandon & Sarah Frank. And cold adventures ... thank you Jeff Winegar. The Christmas Program ... Thank you Carol Salmon. The Secret Santas that gave Mitch love ... Thank you, whoever you are. (both of you) For packages that said you cared ... Thank you Steve Hitz. And gifts from Africa you freely shared ... Thank you Evelyn Jepkemei And Mitch ... (you'll have to watch the video...) Those gifts of compassion and love were also gifts to our hearts, already in mourning. So, to all of you who reached out to him, we sincerely thank you. After that short piece on Mitch the video shifts attention to a much larger contemplation (3:30). It begins with the concept of darkness and grief and remembering to look past the darkness and to the heavens. For the heavens are vast and they are deep ... and many secrets do they keep. If we can scarcely comprehend the heavens we CAN see, perhaps we could have faith in the heaven we cannot yet see. The video concludes with a few more thoughts and an invitation to come with us on the journey ahead. Our most sincere prayer this holiday season is that each of you who follow Mitchell's Journey, whether you comment or join conversations ... or simply watch and quietly listen; our prayer is that each of you will find joy in your life and that your own journeys will be blessed. Though we grieve the loss of Mitch, we have found joy despite the pain. We are grateful for all that remains. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- For those who are curious to see the earlier videos you can visit our Christmas Channel here: vimeo.com/channels/852236 2013 Video: vimeo.com/81968479 2012 Video: vimeo.com/55333684 2011 Video: vimeo.com/43011694

                      When watching Pollyn live, I was struck by lead singer, Genevieve's, beauty and corky but cool, sophisticated moves. I was drawn to direct a music video that exhibited her beauty and style in a simple setting void of any distractions. It's nice to see Genevieve dance and get lost in it, much like the song. I hope you enjoy and get lost too.
