So I went to a meeting of Creative Out Loud this past Sunday in Holly Springs. It is a group of artist that have gotten together it inspire each other, teach each other, and bring art to the community. It was a great group of artist with many media represented. Painting, Mixed Media, Photography, Film, Performance Art, Fabric arts, Music, well you get the picture.
It is always nice to meet other artist and share ideas. The also have a monthly project to help spur your creativity. Several words or phrases are pulled from a box and you create a work of art with one or all of those words or phrases as a theme. They also have a guest speaker every month.
This month Kris Wheeler of Liquid Coast Films, llc came to speak to us about his journey as a journalist and eventually his move into film making. He has had a very interesting life and after seeing the scissor reels, I can not wait to see his movies. Check out his web site www.liquidcoastfilms.com. One of the projects in the works that is due to be released soon the the documentary about "Dread Clampitt" a roots band. The movie is called "Back from the Dread". Its web site is not up yet, but will be soon, keep checking back at www.classicdread.com. Also check out a site for a movie that they are working on called "Bayou Country". It is about the man the wrote the song. The story is great and I am looking forward to this movie. Here is its site http://www.bayoucountrymovie.com/. They also have some TV shows in the works, but those are being kept on the DL until everything is in place and ready to go. I have an idea of my own for a documentary and maybe one day I will get to work with Kris.
