FILM & MUSIC
Documentary Fans and Music Fans! TWO great tastes that go great together! TWO films that I worked on are presently streaming on KCTS (Seattle’s PBS affiliate, for non-Northwesterners).
1) Paradigm Studio’s groundbreaking documentary Icons Among Us: Jazz In The Present Tense is in rotation on Reel NW: http://kcts9.org/reel-nw/icons-among-us
2) M.A.D. NW’s The Otherside, a great look at NW hip hop – roots to present day – is up at KCTS 9 Documentaries: http://video.kcts9.org/
Who said KCTS doesn’t have the sizzle?! Shout outs to all the artists and filmmakers involved in both projects! Spread it y’all!
Sounds like a treat to me!
