Sarah Lintakoon: 2018 Emerging Vision Filmmaker

By | Film

Sarah Lintakoon 2018 ERB Emerging Visions Filmmaker AwardWe are excited to announce our 2018 Emerging Vision Filmmaker, Sarah Lintakoon.
Sarah is a sophomore at the DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond, Washington. She’s studying digital animation and is quite a talented artist, which you can check out on her Instagram account, @strato_cat

Sarah will be responding to the questions posed in our forthcoming (and first) play, Vicinity/Memoryall, by Christine Deavel and J.W. Marshall. What is an appropriate memorial? How are public memorials to both large scale and personal violence different or similar? How would you want to be memorialized? We’ll be sharing Sarah’s film later this fall and you’ll have a chance to talk to her about the film at the premiere of the play.

Sarah is just our second award winner. Learn more about the award here, and see our first award-winner, Rebecca Starkey‘s, film here.

By | Books

Skoor Sound Editing Vis-a-vis Always interesting to spend time with Eric Eagle at Skoor Sound. It’s our next book in progress…something sweet from The Vis-à-Vis Society!

(Pub. note: feeling off all day, I went home from this session and then almost had a heart attack! Spent the night at Harborview after the classic symptoms of heart attack: numb left arm, shortness of breath, super high blood pressure.. if you have the symptoms, don’t be dumb like me: CALL 911!!!)

Review of “Alchemy for Cells…” in the Tupelo Quarterly

By | Reviews

“What the poetry strives to bring about, whether through the magic of words or the evocative nature of the watercolors, is a kind of transmutation. Jewell Zeller and DeBecker teach us how our thoughts and experiences can transform not just our world, but our very psyche, cultivating a consciousness that holds no divide, a mind that is border and transgression, moving elegantly between states of being. All, of course, this philosophizing is done in language that is casually elegant.” – Daniel Casey
