We need your ‘like’ for ‘Plein Air in Thin Air’

I’m working on a documentary to be shot in Wyoming during August and we’re trying to win the Wyoming Short Film Contest. The theme is “WY am I Here?”

Please watch the trailer and give us a “like!” You’ll be asked to log in with your facebook account if you’re not already a vimeo user.

The Wyoming Film Office gives away $25,000 to the winner that goes toward a Wyoming production. We’ll be making the movie in Grand Teton National Park this August.

The top-10 are decided by popularity contest with no regard to production value. The winner is picked by a panel of judges based on the dogs selected by the production team friends and family – it’s click bait from the Wyoming Film Office. Everyone is having a problem with this, but it cuts down on those who sit at their computers and hit play, over and over.

The main voting criteria has to do with promotion of Wyoming.

“WY Am I Here”? What if a 62-year-old grandfather of six decides to climb the spectacular Grand Teton and make never-before drawn pastel views of the expansive landscape?

Laramie artist Joe Arnold has been mountaineering for 50 years. He and his son, Jason, are planning an expedition to Grand Teton National Park for an ascent of the Grand Teton (13,776′) North Ridge route (rated 5.8).

It will be a five-day bonding experience for two generations of climbers with an unusual but creative mission at the summit.

Art 321 in Casper was the location for the CLICK! conference. Watch the Plein Air in Thin Air trailer and ‘like ‘

How did I come across this project?
I went to the Wyoming Arts Council CLICK! conference in Casper a couple weeks ago.

I ran into Joe Arnold. We were each presenting about our art works at the conference.

A couple years ago, Joe won a Wyoming Arts Council fellowship. I did a tribute video about his project which was a trek to Patagonia.

We got to talking. I was looking for a movie to make for the film office contest. I thought about my two works-in-progress, but wasn’t inspired.

Joe has a trailer finished, making it the perfect project.

Take a look and click on the heart in the upper right hand corner of the video player. We want to get into the top-10 of the beauty pageant.

WCM seeks content about Occupy movement in Wyoming for documentary

WCM is curious about Occupy Wyoming and wants to document it. WCM seeks digital video, images, music, audio. Click on the flag to go check out the Occupy Wyoming resource nexus.

Imagine when the Occupy Wall Street movement gets untracked? It’s just a matter of time when the tipping point happens. Occupy Wall Street in Wyoming is evidence that the tipping point is near. This site won’t be updated much, but will serve as a resource about Wyoming-based OWS efforts to the outside world. Dynamic info will be a result of locally-maintained facebook pages, groups and local websites.

Why is Wyoming important? The movement in Wyoming is unique and demonstrates the ubiquity of its appeal when considering the Equality State is the least populated – 565,000 people. It has only two cities over 50,000 – Casper and Cheyenne and dominated by the Republican Party – State legislature 76 GOP; 14 DEM.

Wyoming Community Media (WCM) is putting this information together with an eye on documenting the Occupy Wall Street movement in Wyoming. Wyoming should be an Occupy movement bell weather state. If the movement gains traction in a conservative stronghold, it will be clear the message is cross cutting.

This is one of many unofficial online resources for the growing occupation movement happening around Wyoming and the world. Here’s what the official unofficial Occupy Wall Street website has to say:

“Occupy Wall Street is a people-powered movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District, and has spread to over 100 cities in the United States and actions in over 1,500 cities globally. OWS is fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations . . .The occupations around the world are being organized using a non-binding consensus based collective decision making tool known as a “people’s assembly”.
