Beth O’Brien’s short portrait of Olomouc in the Czech Republic in 2017 will be playing at Aurora Picture Show‘s Extremely Shorts Film Festival May 17-18, 2019, in Houston, Texas. It features an excerpt of Craig Shepard playing his piece “Cypress Hills, April 29, 2012” on trumpet.
My new film of Chris Mann performing his piece “speaking is difficult” this past November in Brooklyn is now available to watch online.
I had the privilege of spending some time photographing the middle and elementary school kids of St. Patrick’s School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, as they prepared for the first of two performances of “The Little Mermaid”. These photos are from opening night – April 6th, 2018.
“Skaters” will be playing as part of the NewFilmmakers Shorts program at Anthology Film Archives in New York City. The short film (4 minutes) was created by Beth O’Brien featuring an excerpt of the piece “André” composed and performed by Craig Shepard.
Craig Shepard and I have just completed “Stained Glass Sunset”, a 49 minute contemplative video. The video is one continuous shot through the stained glass doors at Church of the Annunciation in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, from inside looking out to the sky as the sun sets. It is accompanied by an audio recording of Shepard’s “Circle Music 4.1” realized on September 12, 2015, at Church of the Annunciation, as part of the “Music For Contemplation” series. Craig Shepard (Trombone) Erin Rogers (Saxophone) Vita Wallace (Violin) Dan Joseph (Hammer Dulcimer) I shot and edited the video. Watch here.
