Infinite Garage

July 14th, 2010 by Jeff | 0

Raina Lee’s parents were pack rats. And when they died she inherited 35 years worth of her parents’ stuff crammed into a 3-car garage in Southern California. The garage was a mythic place where as I child I could find anything– gadgets, kitchen wares, stamp collections, bags of money, and clothes. Now that my parents are gone, I’m clearing out their mess but discovering more than ever about their lives. She’s posting her finds on her Infinite Garage project daily and selling some of it on Etsy.

The Kid Stays in the Picture

June 15th, 2009 by Jeff | 0

I wanted to see if it would be fun to make a horror movie. My uncle sent me a book called $30 Film School. It taught me how to do lighting and how you set up the camera. I typed the script in red to make it scary. That’s how nine year-old filmmaker Emma Kenney describes how she started to make her movie, The New Girl in Town, which debuted last week at the New Jersey International Film Festival. Read more.
