Listen to the Art

The folks at 48 Hour Film Project wanted to see what would happen if they paired up some of their most talented competitors with prominent Bay Area artists.

The result was a collection of clips called ArtShots.

This short perspective on musicians Bev & Greg (Bev Barnett and Greg Newlon) evoked the spririt of their music and brought us a glimpse into their lives together as artists.

ArtShots and the 48 Hour Film Project are designed to inspire talented media artists to show off their skill.

In San Francisco right now, you can see what Bay Area filmmakers have created for the 11th 48 Hour Film Project to be held in the City by the Bay. Premiere screenings for the films in the competition can be seen at the Clay Theater on Fillmore St.

Tickets are available online here.

ArtShots: An Invitation to Listen

The hope held by the creators of ArtShots was that filmmakers would find inspiration in their arts partners, and that audiences would be inspired by the collaboration between filmmaker and performer.

We have a feeling that audiences will discover that hope having been met by this clip created by Teresa Widdowson and singer/songwriter duo Bev Barnett and Greg Newlon.

What do you think?

Bev & Greg play live in venues across the West Coast and around the country. If you are enchanted, check their calendar for the next show near you.

Audience voting for the ArtShots clips is open until Tues, Apr 3. The results of that voting, and the awards selected by the jurists will be announced during the South First Fridays art walk on Apr 6. Be there if you are able.

ArtShots: Zero1

When ArtShots was first conceived, Zero1 was exactly the sort of arts organization it was designed to highlight.

This network for art and technology serves Silicon Valley, and in a way the entire world through its programs.

This 90-second ArtShots clip from area educator and broadcast professional Cynthia Green highlights Zero1 and gives a glimpse of the work that it does.
