Renowned filmmaker George Kuchar joined us yesterday for studio visits, general musings, filmed meals, and a lecture/screening hybrid in Shattuck Annex. We were very lucky to have him, and from what I have heard, those who had studio visits with him were quite pleased.
George is an extremely candid man, and at first comes off as quite soft spoken. Until he gets going. He shared many anecdotes about his process and teaching methods. He talked a lot about macaroni and cheese. He is also, quite frankly, hilarious. Here are some of my favorite quotes that I was able to scribble down...many fell between the cracks because I simply couldn't keep up!
"H.P. Lovecraft hated fish."
"Hollywood is all covered...why bother?"
"Also, when people don't show up, we use dummies."
"I don't have a car...I'm not a storm chaser. I describe myself as a storm squatter."
Audience Member - "Have you seen Avatar?"
George Kuchar - "I haven't seen that yet...I did enjoy Titanic. My friends didn't like that so much."
"I try to make them ALL family films."
Thank you, George!

We know PSU has them, but they may be hard to find: Resources. it would be appreciated by present and future generations if everyone would add their secret resource list to the blog.
the new Campus Rec Center- Though it's missing the most important component- a sauna, it has a beautiful pool, classrooms, new weight lifting & cardio machines, free classes and a lot of natural light. Free for all students, affordable for faculty and partners.
The Grad Lab- in the basement of Smith, the Grad Lab has nice computers, scanners, a plotter(!), hands-on training, and some free classes: www.oit.pdx.edu/idsc
More to come...

Congratulations to all of you on the success of your fall reviews. We especially commend the first-years, who jumped in feet first and did a great job presenting solid exploration across the board.
There is no visiting artist for the first Monday night seminar meeting of winter term (January 4) so we will meet as scheduled at 6 in room 320 for a welcome-back potluck and conversation about the program. Bring something good to share and your constructive ideas.
Please remember that the university will be closed Dec. 19-28.
Wishing you all a great break, good holidays and a very happy new year.

On November 2 we were fortunate enough to host Marc Herbst, co-editor of the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest. The Journal of Aesthetics and Protest is a Los Angeles based magazine. The Journal, aware of the possibilities of the boundless moment, searches for ways to think through the cultural and political ramifications of representation. In word and aspiration, The Journal dreams toward a world that differs from "a celebration of the choice already made in the sphere of production, and the consummate result of that choice."
Thanks for joining us, Marc!
