MAY Artist: Meet MARK PERSON: “I found my passion as a photographer on Cape Cod Bay in the winter of 2010. With my Blackberry, I snapped a photo while meditating on a glorious sunset over the still water. It was a crisp evening and I felt so blessed to see, to truly see, that kind of beauty. Something “clicked” in me, too. I subtly began to realize the truth about what’s really important in life-something that I’d always known deep inside but had somehow buried. The sense of hope that I thought I’d lost along with everything else slowly began to resurface. With it came a profound sense of peace that a new dawn was about to break.

From then on, my soul has been my guide. As a photojournalist, I deeply feel an imperative to extrapolate and capture slices of life through the prism of the heart. I am a vessel, with Spirit and the wisdom of my ancestors moving through me.

Beauty and metaphor are everywhere. I am most drawn to “scapes” – land, sea and city – although fashion, celebrity and music fascinate me, as well-anything that is spontaneous and un-staged. My photos have been described as simplistic, pure and emotive of spirit. I feel honored that my work has been compared to Ansel Adams. Whether shooting landscapes, movie dockets, fine art portraits, CD covers or impromptu people images, I am a naturalist.

Inspiration finds me in the oddest places: whether lost in the middle of a cotton field near my childhood homes of Georgia and Alabama, or shooting a CD cover in New York City for an up-and-coming world musician.

To learn more about my portfolio of work or to inquire about engaging me to capture your project, event or inspirations on film.”

Mark’s work will be hanging the the Gallery all month!

Shot most entirely in Massachusetts, Rebel is the story of a woman, a myth, and the politics of national memory. Shrouded in mystery and long the subject of debate, the amazing story of Loreta Velazquez is one of the Civil War’s most gripping forgotten narratives. While the U.S. military may have recently lifted the ban on women in combat, Loreta Janeta Velazquez, a Cuban immigrant from New Orleans, was fighting in battle 150 years ago – one of an estimated 1,000 women who secretly served as soldiers during the American Civil War. Who was she? Why did she fight? And what made her so dangerous she has been virtually erased from history?

Movie Night at the Media Center is a new collaboration with the Woods Hole Film Festival to help bring independent filmmaking to the Cape year round and build on the summer Festival. Now in its 23rd year, the Woods Hole Film Festival supports the work of emerging independent filmmakers and collaborates with organizations Cape-wide to offer additional film programming. The Cape Cod Community Media Center collaboration with the Woods Hole Film Festival offers filmmakers and film fans the opportunity to expand the audience and outreach for independent film on Cape Cod. We hope you will join us for this fantastic new collaboration! This is the first in a new monthly series happening the second Wednesday of each month throughout the Winter, Spring, and Fall. Join us after the screening until 9pm for some Q&A discussions.
***This Q&A discussion maybe be recorded for later broadcast on Channel 99 and YouTube.***

Proceeds go towards Woods Hole Film Festival summer and winter programming as well as Cape Cod Community Media Center to help bring programming like this to surrounding communities.

What kind of rolls do you like? Try some b-roll. Next time you are out in the field shooting, while you are just walking around or waiting for some action, record some footage of related items to your story you are telling that aren’t necessarily the main items. B-roll is used to fill space, compliment the story line, cover bad shots, and support voice overs. Footage such as an interviewee walking around an office or working at a computer; cars driving down a road; birds flying or in the water. All of these clips can help fix bad shots or make for smoother transitions between segments. So next time you are out filming, don’t forget to get some b-rolls!
