Between Night, the film I wrote and directed for my thesis at Boston University was recently selected for the Hartford International Film Festival! So thank you all, once again, to those who helped me to realize this film! It will hopefully provide for some chances to network for the next film, though I don't think I will be able to attend the festival. I am working on updating my site, scottballardfilms.com with a filmography of the films I've shot &/or directed. I've also sent Between Night to several new festivals this week as well - all found on Without A Box. Matt and I are continuing to work out the script for the feature film and it is looking sharp.

I have not updated my blog recently, but will now begin again. Since getting my own website up (scottballardfilms.com), I will devote this blog to upcoming projects. As you might guess, there is an upcoming project! This will be a feature debut and will be the coordinated effort of my colleagues and I. We will be looking to film this next summer in Washington State. Over the next few weeks, I will be transforming this blog into a detailed account about this projects development. It will include our business plan, budget, summary, and the current cast and crew involved in the project already. Please stay tuned!

I have been posting new pictures from my production at my flickr site (www.flickr.com/scottballardfilms). I've also added a slideshow to the right which shows many of the productions stills taken during filming. Adam is at work editing the film - I saw some of it last night and am excited to see the progress. I am still looking for a musician to help out with the soundtrack - jazz trumpet a la Chet Baker.
Other projects abound. I have new cards up on my site at www.twoguitars.etsy.com and several more designs waiting until I have more time! I will be in the Poppytalk Handmade Online Market this month a great place to see some handmade creations.
My photography is now on display at Cafe Nation in Brighton, MA. It will reside there until the end of April - freeing up some much needed space in the apartment for a month.
I will be the cinematographer on my colleague's film this week. Pedro Pontoni is directing his thesis film - we'll be filming at the Super 88 grocery store. It's a colorful place and will look great on film!

I have now started loading pictures on my flickr account. You can see them at www.flickr.com/photos/scottballardfilms. Almost all of these pictures were taken by my sister Angie during the production.

Welcome to my blog featuring updates on my adventures and misadventures in the medium of film. I have just recently completed principle photography on my thesis project for Boston University. Thanks to my dedicated and exhausted crew, the film came off beautifully and is now in the process of being edited. The project is tentatively titled "Between Night" and was shot in color on Super 16mm. We burned through 19 rolls of film for what will be about a 15 minute film, but came away with some beautiful shots. Above is one of the main street corners we used in the film. The film was shot entirely in my hometown of Bellingham, WA.
In upcoming posts, I will detail the process and progress of this project as well as other's which are in the works. I will be adding pictures and video as well. I hope you enjoy-
