On Sunday July 24, 2016 I stopped by the Expo and was met with an abundance of good vibes.
By Kimbra Eberly
With its intimate setting, the kick off of Hub Films was loads of fun.
Friends, family and newcomers gathered to enjoy some quality movies featuring Staten Island filmmaker Lance J. Reha.
Chris Marciante hosted the night presenting some new insight about the art of filmmaking.
What transpired was much more than expected. Watching Lance’s films, “Dead Mans Hand” and “Eviction” triggered a conversation in the room about movie techniques, lighting, audio, cameras used and the cost of making a quality movie.
These discussions were very informative. We all realized that film night could be so much more. Audiences can come out and enjoy watching the movies. But afterwards, filmmakers can stay for an open discussion about ongoing issues in making a film. Or they can just share their successes and what works for them. As we all know, Filmmaking is not easy. We could all use some tips.
The night ended with an inspirational talk about the start of new film projects.
The Hub is looking forward to next month as we watch some more great movies and meet the filmmakers who work so hard at their craft.
It is our intention to attract newcomers who are interested in making movies, folks who just love movies but even more, increase community awareness of the art scene that is evolving in Staten Island.
HAPPY FILMMAKING and “lets have some fun”
Director of “The Directors Chair Film Festival 2016”
LUMEN is an authentic contemporary art experience in New York City featuring emerging and established artists. LUMEN’s goal is connecting artists with the community all while exposed in a nomadic alternative space. The annual event brings original visual, performance and installation art to new audiences, under the artistic vision of various curators from across NYC.
When you walk through the ferry side entrance to Lumen this year you will be greeted by 18 yellow and black 12"x36" Danger signs with grow lights and hanging planters to hold flowers in pots. Hub 17 artist Douglas LaTourette's installation is simply titled "Flowering Plants that Support Bees". He will also be there providing literature about what gardeners can do to help bees which are in serious jeopardy. Happy consequences include the yellow reflective part of the signs are small honeycombs. When lit the grow lights add new life to the crystalline salt that has penetrated the timbers that the signs are hung from.
