Working with Caroline Wright

I recently had the chance to work with Adair Freeman Rutledge on a short video piece about Caroline Wright. We spent the day with Caroline and her family creating images around her home and at Golden Gardens for a video about Carolines life and battle with cancer. It was a great day filled with wonderful stories and Carolines amazing cooking. Check out some frames and the video below.

Caroline Wright is an avid writer and cook, devoted mother, and inspirational cancer patient. This is a small taste of her story. Learn more at

New music video out now!

From the album New Cinema by 1939 Ensemble, mixed by John McEntire (Tortoise, Stereolab).

“On their new song “Wolves,” Portland’s 1939 Ensemble blur lines between rock and jazz with a flurry of interesting, contrasting textures.

Drummer Jose Medeles starts the song with a snare roll and a driving beat; David Coniglio layers on cool vibraphone in descending melodies; guitarist Knate Carter and Josh Thomas (keys) join in and push the song to a crackling, staccato ending. “Wolves” is a standout new track from the band’s latest album, “New Cinema,” released last month on Portland label Jealous Butcher Records.

In the new video directed by Gregg Hale and shot by Dylan Priest, the song draws out a group of masked figures from the shadows like an incantation. Primitive meets edgy, the masked ones turn out to be children, and they eventually overtake the band members and mask them too.” By David Christensen
