Bravo to filmmaking project

Dear Editor:I want to thank and acknowledge everyone who helped make Aspen Film’s 5th annual Latino Youth Filmmaking Project a resounding success. Kris Sorensen from In Progress, returned for the fifth year as instructor, bringing along with her intern, Houa Lor. We had three wonderful teaching assistants, Brianna Rhodes, Serafin Marciani, and Daniel Saporita – each of whom are past workshop participants. Devoted volunteers and local filmmakers Sylvia Johnson of Carbondale and John Catto of Basalt (Aspen Film Board member) assisted students in every aspect of the production process. We are thrilled that we were able to work with CRMS in Carbondale who was kind enough to host our workshop for the second year.This Aspen Film presentation was made possible through the generosity of Sheila Fortune Foundation, Juliet Shield-Taylor and the Robins Foundation, The Thrift Shop, Kinder Morgan and In Progress.Terry RigneyAspen FilmEducation coordinator
