Our short film (under an updated title “Magician’s Favor”) competed in the post-secondary category as part of the young filmmaker contest, and will be screened twice during the festival from April 8 to 14.
The screenings will take place at the Timothy Dwight College Art Gallery and Whitney Humanities Center at Yale University.
Vanishing Act was previously screened at the American Conservation Film Festival in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, and stars Julius Hart as a curious boy who applies the logic of a magic trick to domestic waste disposal.
The festival will take place from April 16th to 21st in Austin, Texas. Reversal is competing in the Emergencia Youth Film Program, and will be screened on April 20th at 1pm.
This will be the first festival screening of the short and I encourage you to fly to Texas and watch my film rather than see it right here.
This is late. It was uploaded nearly three months ago but I got sick literally a day (or two) afterwards and then I flew home for Christmas. And I came back a month and a half after and got nominated for an award by American Cinema Editors! There are some photos from the Eddie Awards here.
Anyway I worked on this back in October last year with new people but also with Chris Lai. This is also the first video to have Sun Eskimos music since Epic Journey 2.5 years ago.
I’m not sure what I am doing with this blog because I’m probably going to reblog this on my main blog anyway.
Tsimshian native artist Bill Helin arrived to Hong Kong on 1st February 2012, and began work on his two totem poles for the Canadian International School of Hong Kong.
Much effort and thought were put into this project in order to make the cultural-blending work.
By the end of his two months here, Bill gained a very rich understanding of the school’s culture. He helped unify students across grades, and more importantly, urged us to respect both our and our peers’ cultures.
