My Clannad Moment

And I am referring to the epic and atmospheric Celtic folk musical group. It is a secret thrill to be among the cast of the forthcoming Chaisson: Quest For Oriud, a high fantasy short film which gives me the Clannad chills–I can’t help it! This Biola University Thesis is being directed by Brian Ulrich and is produced by Kevin Ulrich and Karyn Musch, following up their award-winning claymation film, Chaisson: Rise of the Zered. It shoots early summer in Afton Canyon and one of my favorite places, New Mexico. Let the quest begin!

Sustain

Tonight I attended the screening of AFI student Tommy Takemoto-Chock’s second cycle short, entitled “Sustain.” I play the piano teacher in this exquisite piece about childhood, memory, and longing.
