JSF / Wexner Selections Out Now!


Since 1989, the Art & Technology residency program, part of the Media Arts department at the Wexner Center for the Arts, has provided in-kind, post-production support for over 250 artists working in film and video. This volume of The Journal of Short Film represents some of the highlights from the past 10 years. Art & Tech has been a sanctuary for artists who are looking for support (sometimes technical, sometime creative, and often both) and an environment that encourages experimentation and welcomes the technical challenges that so often result.

These works represent only a handful of the many that have been supported during our tenure. It has been a pleasure to work with such an amazing group of artists and we look forward to the next 10 years!

Calling forth that ol' time relijon

Today we celebrated my daughters 7th birthday. A surprise treat amidst all the gift wrapped laughter, gossip, and a dozen cups of casually sipped coffee, was this impromptu session with my father in-law and various extended family. These old boys relished the chance to fall back through the years to when they were younger, and bluegrass/country music was a rage.

This made my day...

CIF+VF 2008 is Faster, Stronger, Better

While the festival season officially began in September with a pair of docs about Ohio's less than adequate election track record, Free For All, and How Ohio Pulled It Off, the final film in the trio may be the most well timed.

Murder, Spies and Voting Lies screening just one week before election day, at the Drexel Theater, should make even the most skeptical of soccer moms sit up and take notice.

Can we trust the back-room relationships between a corporation building our vote-counting machines in secret, and the campaigning politicians lobbying to win bids of support benefiting said corporation? Join us to discuss on Oct 28th! Perhaps you will end up in another article in the Huffington Post as did our last event screening at Studio35.

Until then, feel free to connect to our various online nodes:

Pride 08

While I'm up late trying to tie up lose ends... I'll admit that when the PRIDE Parade evolved into a march during the last leg of its trek downtown to the statehouse lawn - I was happy to join in. This clip is from the corner of High and Nationwide Blvd. in Columbus Ohio June 28th. Some folks just weren't in the celebratory mood.

May 16th opening: Inside the office

May 16th opening: Inside the office
Originally uploaded by Scissor_Stills

My selection of photographs from the GROUNDED series opened in dowtown columbus at the offices of GRIP Technology... across the street from Brioso coffeshop, and one block west of TIP TOP.

The opening reception was smooth sailing, with gorgeous weather, and gorgeous people!

Thanks to everyone who came out, we had a helluva good time! Extra props go to my wife Sarah who surprisingly only gave me the "I want to remind you that I can make your life miserable" look a few times during the run up to the show.

Thanks to Dustin at GRIP also for hosting this thing - and for the cold beverage selections.

The show will be up on the walls at 17 e Gay st until July 1.
