FILM & MUSIC
Documentary film and music have been coupled in my work often, and TWO films that I worked on were recently streaming on KCTS (Seattle’s PBS affiliate).
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 – was up at KCTS 9 Documentaries: http://video.kcts9.org/
