Student Freelance Opportunity: Video Editor

(this is from an email I recieved from GeorgeAnne Landreth about a film editing oppurtunity) ….”The name of our production company is “Carzy Flamingo”. The producer’s name is Carla Landreth you can find her on fb along with me (GeorgeAnne Landreth). We are creating a Christmas movie called “It’s on the List”. It’s a comedy about 2 cousins that have to gather whatever is left of the family for a Christmas Dinner in order to inherit there Aunt’s estate whom just passed away. Total comedy ensues with colorful characters and a wacky murderer on the lose. This all takes place in a small Texas town with one location (being a house). So there are not very many special effects that are needed except some phone rings here and there and no CGI what so ever. The only reason why I can’t do the editing myself is because I don’t have the proper equipment/technology (we still have dial-up at our house). Never mind I have never had any training or talent in editing. We will begin filming in late November the script is 85 pages long with lots of description. We have budgeted some money to pay the editor. We would hope to have the movie ready to go by New Year’s? I would also be available at all times for help with edit since I am the director. We have a few actors we are bringing in from out of state and Dallas to help make the production as professional, fun and attractive as possible.”

I have spoken to GeorgeAnne and all the need is someone with Adobe Premiere experience.  This sounds like a good opportunity for a paid gig and a major resume builder.  Please contact me (Chris Ireland) if you are interested and I can pass along the contact info

Gallery Exhibition: Drawing Details by Hollis Hammonds opening Monday 8/24


The Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center Gallery of Art proudly presents the first art exhibit of the 2015- 2016 season, Drawing Details, an exhibition by Austin based artist Hollis Hammonds.  The exhibit will be on view from August 24th – September 26th.  A visiting artist lecture will take place on September 9th at noon in the Workshop Theater in the Clyde H. Wells Art Center, followed by a reception at 3:30 pm in the Gallery.

Hollis’s creative practice ranges from detailed drawings to sculptural installations that shift back and forth between reality and fantasy, illustrating disaster-like images of piles of debris, altered landscapes, and broken homes. Her work questions consumerist culture through evidence of accumulation, hoarding and collecting, piles of trash and personal artifacts. Inspired by personal memories, Hollis’s work is also informed by material consumption, waste, catastrophe and superficial loss.

Hollis Hammonds is a Kentucky born artist who has been living and working in Austin, Texas since 2007. Hammonds received her MFA from the University of Cincinnati in 2001, and her BFA in drawing from Northern Kentucky University in 1998. Her work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. including solo exhibitions at Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston, SC; the Reed Gallery at the University of Cincinnati in OH; the Museum of Art at Southern Mississippi University in Hattiesburg, MS; the Hiestand Galleries at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio; and at Women and Their Work gallery in Austin, TX. She is the author of Drawing Structure: Conceptual and Observational Techniques, and has had her creative work published in New American Paintings #114, INDA 4, INDA 7, INDA 8, and Uppercase Magazine. Currently she is the Chair of the Department of Visual Studies at St. Edward’s University in Austin,
