Still from Miranda July’s “Nest of Tens”
We traveled to Houston last weekend for Southwest Alternate Media Project’s Emerging Filmmakers Fellowship Program. There we got to meet the five other Texas fellows and the filmmaker’s who are mirroring our program from Mexico City. Angela gave a short presentation about our film upcoming short film Journey of the Opportunist. We had lunch in the The Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden with our new friends and mentor Ya’Ke Smith. On Saturday evening we attended the Aurora Picture Show screening of The Best of the Dallas Video Festival hosted by festival director Bart Weiss. We finally got to see Miranda July’s Nest of Tens which we had been unable to find. On Sunday we attended a very enjoyable seminar called What is Video Art hosted again by Bart Weiss. Afterwards we saw Dinosaurs 3D at the IMAX which was beyond cool. Our trip was great, thank you to SWAMP for being wonderful hosts, we’re looking forward to getting started on our new film!
