  4. Created Animatics of their concepts using storyboards/photoboards/ or 3D Animation software.
  5. Worked with actors to create an audio track for their animatics
  6. Created websites for their work
  7. Pitched their scripts and films to a jury of peers.

Here are some links to a few of their sites:

FRAME Highlight: Student Support Services

One amazing evolution of  UAF FRAME-Film Production Services is being able to connect with other programs of the University of Alaska Fairbanks system, and learn more what they do. Here’s an example of a FRAME project I mentored this spring with a film major at the helm.

The Emerging Scholars Academy prepares incoming, first-time-freshman for college, and provides 8 academic credits saving the average student over $1000 in classes.

Music Video for OCnotes

Sometimes, you just need to do something different. Had a blast making this impromptu video with the talented Silver Jackson and OCnotes in Juneau, Alaska. My boy even got his first cameo!

Leona – transformations

Leona is three different characters within Bodies of Water.

Leona is a child – confrontational, rebellious, but still a child.

After the death of Willow – Leon cuts her ties with her family -she is tired of being judged. She chooses to enter the world (reborn) on her own terms, but quickly gets drawn into another family – the troupe.

Finally- Leona births herself. The Water Cell as Womb into this persona – still stuck. Still reliving the tragedy, but finding freedom and even grace within it. As close to the edge of life as she can be.  The edges of life – before birth-into death. In the water.
