Hello Frocktalkers – hope you had a good weekend! I am back from Carbondale, Illinois, where I spent a few days serving as a juror for the Big Muddy Film Festival. It was a total blast, and I am so inspired by the work I saw there. In total, I think I saw 52 films in about 48 hours (give or take some hours for sleep). Some of them were shorts, but there were many, many 60+ minute films. It was a lot to see, but boy was it fun. We announced the winners on Saturday night, via Beatles Rock Band, singing the titles of the winners. It was awesome.

One satisfied customer: the CAT MAT
Hello Frocktalkers! Just here to let you know about a few things. I have been asked to be a juror at a film festival this week, so I will MISS the CDG Awards on Thursday. Do not fear. Frocktalk correspondents Anthony and Sarah will be handling coverage of the event, and I can’t wait to hear their stories! As part of the film festival I’m attending, I will screen Running Scared (2006), a film I designed, with Q & A afterward. It should be fun! Along those lines, I was recently interviewed by Chris at Clothesonfilm.com about the film, and you can read those interviews HERE and HERE. Lastly, while I am away, there is a trunk show happening on Sunday in Glendale, and my wares will be peddled there. More after the jump!

Keva (L) and Karen Keyes
Keva and Karen Keyes are some of the most delightful gals you’ll ever meet. I was first introduced to them on the set of Walker Payne, a movie I designed in South Carolina in 2005. They were local costumers then; they are director and producer now. Their short film, Letters From Home, screens at the 18th Pan-African Film Festival in Culver City this weekend. I am excited to share their story with you. These ladies had the guts and the tenacity to transition into the directors’ chairs, and I interviewed them about all of it today.
