“Marcell” at Film Music Festival at Park City in May

My film “Marcell” was recently selected for the Film Music Festival at Park City Utah! This is indeed a great honor for me. My composer Wenda Zonmefeld deserves special props not only for her compelling score but for completing the ardues application process. With this Marcell qualifies for an IMDB page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1893281/ This film was inspired by Marcell Ivanyi’s insurmountable short film “Wind”. Marcell was originally filmed in an industrial neighborhood near South Lake Union in 2009. I want to give a shout out to the members of my cast. Michael Brill has worked with me on a number of productions since our first meeting that day. His craft continues to guide. Ronee Collins recently completed shooting the Ending to Dhoom music video for me. Expect to see her stunning performance shortly. David Reyes worked with me on “TacoMan”. Filmed in the Summer of 2010 in Tacoma. Craig Stratton and John Elkin my classmates in film school, continue their careers as filmmakers here in Seattle. The film could not have been made without the intelligent guidance of filmmaker Sandy Cioffi.

Wet, Cloudy, Icy: Washington! – Images by Michael Kleven

I am working to unite my Photoshelter website with my online personal website and blog. Towards that end here is a link to gallery of images I’ve taken in my travels around the state. Some are from the blueberry fields of Puyallup and the nearby Foothills Trail. Others are from the White River near Auburn Southern Kind County and the Outdoor Sculpture Park on Elliot Bay. All photos may be ordered as prints or licensed for publication. Let the integration begin!
