“To be awarded to one or more Rooftop Films alumni filmmakers to help them to complete a short film that communicates the power of hope, collaboration and togetherness to make positive change. ” -Rooftop Films

Wow. Welp.  I just got awarded a grant from the wonderful Rooftop Films, thank you! I will be making a short doc about my mother, Susan Frost and what she does for a living. She’s an ocularist, she makes artificial eyes, meaning she hand sculpts, paints and molds the eye for her patients. It’s intimate. It’s emotional and she literally changes the patients life. I cannot wait to make this film and am thankful my mom is down to make it as well! Thank goodness for artists as parents! YAY!

Well. This happened. It’s been like a surreal dream…

The film I produced with an amazing team in 2012 narrated by the one and only, recently passed, Charles Manson, OLD MAN will be distributed by the infamous Criterion Channel’s FilmStruck. It will play before Dennis Hopper’s feature debut, Easy Rider. It is a rather perfect pairing.

1969 saw the release of Dennis Hopper’s Easy Rider and the media circus ignited by the Manson murders, two seismic cultural events that cast a shadow on the freewheeling good vibes of the hippie era. This program brings together two films that capture the spirit of that chaotic year. In the 2012 experimental documentary Old Man, Brooklyn-based artist Leah Shore combines eye-popping animation with never-before-heard phone calls that Charles Manson made from jail to the infamous cult leader and Canadian author Marlin Marlin M. Marynick. In his directorial debut, Hopper created one of the great American road movies, a counterculture sensation that mixed New Wave-inspired aesthetics, a bold rock soundtrack, and star-making performances by Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson.
