Hello, Thanks for visiting my page. I developed this website to help promote independent film and New York-area film festivals. I am always looking for like-minded people who want to write about film, so if that might be you, please drop me an e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We remain open to any kind of article, whether it be a review or short essay. All reviewers will be paid with a free AMC, Regal or Bowtie Cinemas movie pass.
As for me, I have an M.A. in Film from American University. Since then my jobs have included agent’s assistant at ICM, membership coordinator for the Independent Feature Project, script reader for TriStar Pictures and the Tribeca Film Institute, and program coordinator for the Columbia University Film Program. I have served as a member of the selection committee for the Hamptons International Film Festival and Blow-Up Film Festival (Chicago), and currently serve as a juror for KIDSFirst! Film Festival.
I’ve made a few short films and will be posting them here. The first one is a ten-minute film about Van Morrison fans that’s proved quite popular on YouTube and with the fans. I’ve always been fascinated by obsessive people and docs about them, such as Trekkies and Cinemania. I’ve also been a big fan of the music of Van Morrison. And so, when I realized what a seriously dedicated fan-base Van has, the idea of making a film about them seemed a natural. I hope to make a longer version one day. Here it is:
Another ongoing project is finding a way to share the art and honor the memory of my late brother, Seth, an artist who passed away some years ago at the age of twenty. I put together a blog with some images of his art work, which can be seen here: http://sethalanfishman.blogspot.com/
I decided to start photographing his art works and put them together into a slide show. I made a short version which can be seen below; a longer version will be forthcoming as I get more photographs done. I hope you enjoy this current version.
Here’s a short video I made about my good friend, musician Larry Abram back when I was in film school. The narration is by a fellow student at the time, Jennifer Millette:
