A couple goals that I have for this year are to write more, and shoot more often with my Canon camera when taking photos.
Although these goals are more of an ongoing effort rather than something achieved, they help me to become a better filmmaker in the process. The past year I have worked to rebrand my work, and redesign my website with the intention of keeping it updated more frequently with blog entries, and projects that I'm working on and am involved with.
Lately, most of the blog entries have been sunrise photos- which is part of another on-going project, but the blog will also feature production journals with behind-the-scenes, and making-of featurettes from new projects that give a better view into the creative process.
My hope is it makes the work more interesting, and becomes a platform to grow and improve upon. With that said, here is a look at some of my projects from the past year that I will recap in upcoming entries on the blog.
“Being a cat owner myself I just wanted to explore that pet-owner relationship a little more and the vibe at the cat show, too,” Meiners said to the audience gathered for the screening at TheatreNOW.
“Fortunately enough, you leave the camera on people and there are cats in the background, so there is bound to be some interesting stuff that happens.”
"Cucalorus Draws Largest Crowd Yet" by Cole Dittmer (Lumina News)
Couldn't ask for better press with a headline like that. Thank you, Lumina News!
“I don’t want people to feel like this is just cat people, it’s all people,” Meiners said. “At the heart of it is the relationship of pets and their owners and the love that they have for each other.”
"Cat Show Vibe Illustrated In Short Film" by Kelly Corbett (Lumina News)
Check out my interview in the Lumina News this week about the premiere of "Cat Show" at Cucalorus. It will be screening today at 1:30pm (Nov. 17th) at TheatreNOW and is part of the Bog Beans Shorts film block. Cat attire not required, but highly recommended. Hope to see you there.
