My final capstone film took over 9 months of candid photography of my personal environment, surroundings and adventures, and transformed them into a stop motion short. Enjoy a look through my eyes, into my world and be happy with your lives.
The showing was a success as well, I had at times over 100 people in the audience, keeping it a full house throughout the evening. It was a relaxed evening at Town Run Brewing Company, with a large crowd, good beer and films. The event ran smoothly and all of the response thus far has shown that the public interest is in favor of more independent film showings in town. I keep getting flooded with emails from citizens and filmmakers asking about the past event and asking if there will be another one.

Overall, I had a blast making a film, and hosting the event. I am super grateful that I was able to grab the attention of several local media outlets such as The Herald Mail.
It was important to get my range of attendance in-between ages 18-60, by not only getting the buzz out via social media, and through Shepherd University’s Student Affairs emailing list, but also getting into newspaper, town news letters, events calendars and by posting the two physical fliers in local businesses or in public spaces.
I am very excited that I was able to not only bring more art into Shepherdstown from filmmakers from other states, but to also show how much the creative drive of one or a small group of people could do to bring together a unique experience that won’t easily be forgotten.
I am very excited for the next chapter in my life.
