(Technically: 446)

Working on the new edit for NYZ with some temp music. 300 days and still working on it.

Met with Yemane briefly and we're going to sit down and go through it once more in December.

Hope you had a Happy Turkey Day and Shopping Day After.

George and Ballard High School Filmmakers on KPLU

Last August, I came home to Seattle for a few weeks to unwind and relax. During that time, I was invited back to Ballard High School by Matt Lawrence to talk to his video students and show them my latest work, Kiss Me, I'm English and NYZ.

Gary Davis, who runs the local Artscape program on KPLU came by to interview former and current Ballard video students in a piece that just came out last night called "Following Aristotle: Ballard High's Storytellers."

Also featured in the piece were fellow BHS alum Madison Murphy and current students Blair Scott and Emily Deering, plus a look at Reflection, produced by Blair Scott and Sheridan Koehler.

Listen to the audio and read the full article on the KPLU website!
Day 285

(Technically: 431)

88 Days ago I was in Seattle, where I screened Kiss Me, I'm English and a rough cut of NYZ to a bunch of video students at Ballard High School, where we discussed them and talked about how I can change my latest cut to make it better. It's come a long way since then.

But also while I was there, so was Gary Davis, who runs the local Artscacpe feature on KPLU and he was doing a piece about Ballard filmmakers, capturing our post-screening discussion and critique of my film and even interviews with current BHS students in an article called "Following Aristotle: Ballard High's Filmmakers."

Listen to the audio highlights and read the full article on the KPLU Artscape website!
