Working with the Chico Community Arts for over 26 years is all four seasons of art! Working in California Cities such as; Los Angeles, San Francisco, Marin County, Ventura/Ojai/Santa Barbara Coastlines is magical. This has given me a perspective of hope and praise in filming our lovely landscape and people, for generations to come. Films are Archives, and that is wonderful.
Reviving the film experience in Chico and Butte County is what we are currently focused on for the coming years. Since 1905 we have had stunning movies made and numerous styles of films developed from our gorgeous home, Chico, Ca..With over 35 personal years of shooting manual photography, video/film creation and editing, multimedia design and performance, my goal is to merge this current media, with our foundation of over 100 years of documentation of the arts.
Planting the seeds for a clear vision of Chico’s future, our community for years to come! We invite you to the 2018 Season.
