Just Hibernating

February 4th, 2010

White of Eye has been hibernating but is just taking a rest.. when White of Eye wakes up, White of Eye will be very hungry and will probably go eat a fish or something. And then make an awesome movie. Perhaps about eating a fish. One small bit of news: portlandfilm.org is featuring some of […]

Rejection Letter

October 18th, 2009

I got an email from Thomas Phillipson at the NW Film Center a few days ago that begins: “It is with heavy heart and a wince that I inform you that your entry was not selected for the 36th Northwest Film & Video Festival…” *sigh* oh well, maybe next year. This year’s NW Film Fest […]

August 27th, 2009

As I mentioned last post, there will be showing of the best of the 48 Hour Film Project at the Hollywood Theater this Monday at 7:30pm. If I remember correctly from last year, it sold out, so you should get there early to make sure you get a seat. I look forward to seeing what […]

The Haps

July 23rd, 2009

It seems that my WOE blog is pretty influential.. or so some seem to think. I was recently contacted by a couple of people I have never met about helping them promote upcoming showings of their projects through this site. One of them was for an indie film called “Ink” that’ll be showing at the […]

A Wild Week of Movie Watching

May 13th, 2009

I added together all the movies I watched last week and the total came to 46. Sure, they were mostly short movies, but still.. 46 movies. And most of those locally made. I am experiencing an exquisite mixture of movie-making inspiration and movie-watching fatigue. Hopefully just the inspiration lasts. PDX Film Festival I was blown […]

Long time, no news! I’ve been away in Vietnam since early March, but now I’m back and ready to make some more movies. I have a few things in the works: another short comedy, Storytime Adventures episodes two and three, a quirky piece about a guy with a memory problem and also a few music […]

Portland International Film Festival

February 8th, 2009

You may have noticed that we are in the midst of the Portland International Film Festival. Unfortunately I had to miss the showing that I most wanted to see, the collection of local shorts.. apparently the schedulers did not contact my soccer team to ensure I wasn’t going to be on the turf during the […]

News from the World of WOE

November 26th, 2008

I had my first White of Eye screening! I went to the amateur filmmakers night at Kelly’s Olympian and showed two movies: Storytime Adventures #1 and my recently completed short comedy Documented Roommate (I’ll have that one online soon.) They both went over well.. the singing crabs got a lot of laughs. It was definitely […]
