WIP=”JUST BETWEEN US”
Friday, October 15, 7:30-10:30 pm, Public Space One
Will Erin Smith’s stand-up routine be a triumph, or an utter failure? Will A Literal Letter Service find a new business model to focus their correspondence services on “the streamlined almost of the ever coming present”? Tanner Smith has been mapping the fictional town of TanVille for years; will David Dunlap understand his project? Filmmakers Joe Bookman and Craig Webster ask whether the WiP audience will find their movie about fishing and friendship entertaining. Joh Kirk asks us to think about female bodies, medical science, and dance as a technology of the body. Robert Todd and Lori Felker screen their high contrast correspondence film, a science non-fiction fairy tale, and wonder what comes between two filmmakers collaborating at a distance.

After a lifetime torn between music and drawing/painting, film sauntered into the picture in 1989 and offered ROBERT TODD’s maker innards a truce- through- shotgun- wedding that seems to have endured ever since. A lyrical filmmaker as well as a sound and visual artist, he continually produces short works that resist categorization. He has also worked as editor, sound designer, post-supervisor or music producer on various broadcast and theatrically released productions. He currently makes, collaborates and teaches in the Boston area.
LORI FELKER studied English Literature and German as an undergraduate, which then led her to study Film Studies in Berlin on a Fulbright (2000). Increasingly interested in combining her love of writing and film history with creativity and handcraft, she eventually took up filmmaking in 2001 by taking classes at Pittsburgh Filmmakers. Since earning her MFA in Film Video and New Media at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she has been living, making films/videos, teaching, and compulsively collaborating in Chicago.
FLINT JAMISON is a contemporary artist whose work spans multiple genres and modes. As a digital photographer and conceptual artist, he has exhibited internationally. As a curator, he is editor-in-chief of the art journal Veneer, lauded for being a work of art unto itself. He is also founder of multiple non-profit arts organizations, and has been a visiting artist and guest lecturer at CalArts, the School of Visual Arts in Bordeaux, France, and SUNY-Buffalo.
