Screening in Nicosia


I have been fortunate enough to be invited to present Making Faces at the 4th International Conference on Typography and Visual Communication (ICTVC) in Nicosia, Cyprus. This will be the most complete version of the film seen so far, but not the final edit. Progress and feedback is encouraging. Assistance in sound and editing from the fine folks at Splice Here in Minneapolis are making this project come together quite nicely.
Thank you...everyone...for your support!

Jim Rimmer: On Making Things

video

As editing progresses, there are more and more re-discoveries of great moments of Jim reminiscing and talking about his life and motivation for creativity. This one is a classic that all parents would cringe at and felt it was a good representation of Jim and his way of telling a story with a twinkle in his eye. This is one clip that may not make the main film but probably be included with DVD bonus features. I hope you enjoy it.

Kickstarter backer preview

The 30 minute preview shown in Berlin can be seen via the Kickstarter page if you are a Kickstarter backer of the project (even $1). Support has been great but since there are still 13 days to go and you can essentially pre-order the DVD, get a font or other various levels of backing and rewards, we will happily accept additional backers. A separate funding source fell through so this Kickstarter thing has been a great help to get the film done. Did I mention I like Kickstarter?
