Our Winning Movie On-Demand

Now you can view our award-winning short film, Skating The Pacific To Europe, on-demand starting April 1st 2008 if you are a Comcast cable subscriber in the local (Twin Cities) area! Beginning in April and running all through the year, you can check out the 10-minute film Rita and I made with Arthur Seaman for the MN Greatest Generation Film Project 2007. We are thrilled to get this play and exposure for our little movie and we hope you all get a chance to see it if you haven't already.

Featured on Channel 12

Last week we were interviewed by the Northwest Community Television network, Channel 12, about our award winning short film "Skating the Pacific to Europe." You can watch the segment on their Community Journal program. Channel 12 serves the northwest suburbs of the Minneapolis metro area. We even made some more connections thanks to the program!

Best Collaboration Award!

I seriously don't know how the judges made their decisions with such a high caliber of movies submitted this year but we are honored to have been selected. If you weren't able to attend the screening or awards, you can watch the five winning films online at the Minnesota Historical Society website. You can also read the "Legacy News" special article about the event and films.
Art Seaman was an inspiration to us and we certainly miss his presence out on the rink. This award is dedicated to his memory.

Moving Pictures Festival

Please join us Sunday, October 21st 2007, at the Minnesota History Center for an afternoon of 60 short documentary films, including two created by us from our longer-form work on this project. "Skating The Pacific To Europe" tells the story of Arthur Seaman, 1948 Olympian, and his Hawaiian adventures with ice. "My Name Is McNamara" explores the 1952 Olympics and European events of Matthew McNamara. Both films screen during the 3:00pm timeslot, so make sure not to miss them!
City Pages said that our film "makes beautiful use of still shots" and we hope you agree. KARE-11 Saturday morning also featured our film on October 20, 2007.
