A discussion with Mary Jesse (CEO of Heyou Media) and Diana Dotter, presented by The Film School.

FEATURE PRESENTATION: ROCKETMEN

The Stranger Genius Award winner, Webster Crowell, blends live action with animated interludes for the deranged comedic adventures of The Department of Municipal Rocketry, a forgotten jobs program intended to counter 'threats of tomorrow'. And communists.

Followed by a Q&A with the Creators, Cast and Crew.

"WORKS IN PROGRESS" WORKSHOP

This is an opportunity to see what's coming up in our web series community, but also to listen in as filmmakers from these series solicit expert advice from our panel. Selected works include:

  • A reading of the pilot script of "Off Leash," a comedy set in a dog park.
  • A clip from "Chaldea," the transmedia graphic novel series.
  • A clip from "Wednesdays with Karla," a documentary series following recovery from Lyme Disease.
  • Behind-the-scenes footage and concept images from "Invisible Intelligence," a series about Harriet Tubman's time as a spy from the creators of Phoenix Run.
  • A clip from "Improv 101," a comedy set in an improv class.
  • A clip from "Dynamo," which defies blurbification.


Feedback panelists include:

  • Beth Barrett, Artistic Director of Seattle International Film Festival
  • Matt Longmire, Technical Director of Seattle Web Fest
  • Ben Dobyns, CEO of Zombie Orpheus, producer of JourneyQuest, and creator of Strowlers
  • Kris Boustedt, prolific local director and professor at Shoreline Community College
  • Diana Dotter, Executive Director of The Film School
