December Screening

Just a reminder to everyone that the screening in December won’t be in person! There will be a playlist sent out with all of the wonderful submissions inspired by past themes. I hope you all are working on fabulous minute movies and I can’t wait to see what you create. I encourage you to comment on what you see. These will be screened at the January screening so you will still have the opportunity to see them on the big screen.

Past themes to choose from:
Blue
Remember
Time
Brilliant
Boundary
Move
Sticky
Strength

Move Screening

Another great screening last night! August was a slow month for submissions, so we improvised at the screening. Brilliant and Blue had both had some late additions to the playlist so we weren’t able to watch them on the big screen the day of, but we had a chance to see them last night. And while we were at it we watched them all again! It was great to see both familiar and new faces. And I hope to see you all again in September!

MOVE:

Peter Ray :: Detroit Move
Mark Davidek :: Did you…
Hari Har Khalsa :: Move to Seattle aka Mild NY
Stuart Ferrier :: The Move

Now let’s make some more Minute Movies! Next theme: STICKY

Screening of Brilliant

Last night’s screening was awesome! An intimate group of people and only 5 minute movies this time, but it was still amazing. Mark and Don both submitted films (tied for most number of submissions!) and Scott sent one in for the first time. The intro was done in the nick of time along with my own submission.

Minute movies is great for getting the creative juices flowing and getting it done. Nothing like a deadline to really make the magic happen!

As always, can’t wait for next time! July’s theme: BOUNDARY

Screening of Time

The screening of Time went swimmingly on Sunday! It was great to see all the amazing minute movies people put so much work into. Shout out to all the filmmakers who submitted this month! It was great seeing new faces out there! Keep doing good things!

The next screening is BRILLIANT on June 15th. Hope to see you all there!

Switchboard

Minute Movies is more than individuals making movies. It is a community of filmmakers and creative people coming together to have fun, exercise creative muscles, learn new things, explore new ideas, and meet new people.

There’s a new social media platform for this called Switchboard. It’s still in beta for now, but we have early access to it! It’s a place where you can post asks and offers for various projects to communicate with other members of Minute Movies. It’s awesome! So head on over, ask the minute movie community for your hearts desire or offer someone something they didn’t even know they needed!

See you over there!

Remember Screening

Last night around 20 filmmakers and creative enthusiasts got together at Seattle Film Institute to watch the screening of Remember. We were all blown away by how amazing each minute movies was. Humor and emotion, art and contemplation, memories shared and connections made. All of the minute movies offered little glimpses of the idea Remember. It was a pleasure to watch.

The films:

Memory of Cherry Blossoms :: Don Baker

Remember… :: Peter Ray

Remember :: Peter Feysa

Sister Dreams :: Sarah and Stuart Ferrier

Remember… :: Mark Davidek

Memories of Fishing :: Frank Burk

Ep. 2 – Blue Wave vs. Red Moon – A Happy Time to Celebrate :: MK Barr

Remember :: HariHar Khalsa

AudioStagg “Remember” :: Greg Gould

I can’t wait for what next month holds. I hope to see you there!

Blue

We’re making movies! Minute movies, to be exact. Every month there is a theme and movies are made on that theme. Then we will screen them at Seattle Film Institute on the third Sunday of the month.

This month the theme is BLUE and I already have a couple finished links! I’m super excited to see what everyone comes up with. I can’t wait to see the rest of them! I like this theme because there are so many ways to interpret the word blue and seeing what everyone comes up with is awesome.

I have the shoot for my movie scheduled for tomorrow and I’m looking forward to it! Happy filming!
