Great News from Redlands Cinema Classic

Louie Schwartzberg – award-winning cinematographer, director and producer of the beautiful  documentary Wings of Life for DisneyNature (whom we met on Earth Day last year at that screening) – has created a 15 minute film short for the Spring 2014 Film Series to be screened prior to our feature films. Using time-lapse, high-speed and macro cinematography techniques to capture and create this breathtaking imagery, Schwartzberg is a visual artist breaking barriers, connecting with audiences, and telling stories that celebrate life and reveal the mysteries and wisdom of nature, people and places.

As a fan of ‘Moving Art,’ I personally encourage all of you to join us for this unique opportunity and invite you to be inspired by nature’s beauty. To experience this one-of-a-kind sample of Mr. Schwartzberg’s film, please arrive at least 25 minutes prior to our first feature film. Audience members will receive a special code from Moving Art for a free digital download of the film short, Naked Beauty, in which the only actors are flowers!

Also, click here and check out the schedule of our Spring film series lineup.

See you at the movies!

Artist Bios

Spring is in the air… its time to spring clean our “artist bio” for those of us that have not up dated the one in the book recently. If you’ve never written one before now’s the time to write one. The format 2 separate pages:

  • Page 1 brief bio about yourself and your work, contact details such as your website and email address, and a small photograph of yourself.
  • Page 2: 3 photo examples of your work, with your name and website/gmail at the bottom of the page.

Customer’s regularly ask about the artist who made the piece of work they are buying, so if you have business cards put a few of them with your bio and I will put them in the bio book as well. You can drop off your bio at the next take in or email it to me bizzilizzi7@gmail.com and I’ll print it and put it in the book for you.

Thanks Liz Coviello, Historian in the cupboard

Another MCAEEF Minute

 The MCAEEF committee met on March 5 and discussed quite a number of items.  President Gail attends all of our meetings and she does a great job of keeping us informed about many RAA issues and activities.  We appreciate Gail attending our meeting because we are not a committee that operates separately but rather in unison with all other RAA functions.
The spring film series begins next week so Annette had much to share with us about the series.  She always sets up a great line up of films and we hope that you attend and enjoy each film.  Remember, this is what generates the funds used for all of the grants we approve, so please come, enjoy and support our cause.
We also approved a grant for Cope Middle School.  Cope has identified about 25 students who are interested in art and the school is forming an after school art club for them.  This will be very exciting to watch.  We were happy to approve their grant for $800.00 which will provide the teacher and some materials for the classes.
We also finalized plans for this year’s scholarships and awards made available to high school seniors attending our local schools.
We are eager to share the activities with you and hope that you find them interesting.
