I was invited to be a guest on a Radio show

KSKQ

Those are radio call letters.  I start with them because I just put a half hour on their air and on their web.   I was a guest on Theresa & Ted’s “Culture Corner” conversations.
You can go to www.culturecorner2020.com/audio-archives to hear it any time now.
It was billed as: EPISODE 29: 03/16/2019 … Greeley Wells (local ART/FILM/POETRY)
 
This was a first for me and a lot of fun.  All seemed to flow very nicely and with humor and creativity.  Probably the most public I’ve been with my poems ever and I was glad for the opportunity.  Poetry is a part of my life I don’t talk much about.  It’s been sort of private and occasional.   In the last few years I’ve come out with them a bit more with a monthly poetry reading with six like minded souls as we read together at each others houses.  It’s been very informative and entertaining and helped me grow and become more public about this creative side of me almost no one knows about.  
 
If you’ll listen you’ll find out about the many films I’ve produced and some new ones about to see the light of day, or a dark theatre.    I am proud to announce that I have a film in the 18th annual Ashland Independent Film Festival.  The wonderful film is called Saving Wellington.  It’s about our beloved Applegate and a central wild area that needs to be protected.  There are two showings Thursday, April 11th at 3:40p, and Saturday, April 13, 9:20p at the Ashland Street Cinema.
 
So slip into www.culturecorner2020.com for a little half hour dose of Greeley.

THANK YOU, to all those that helped me celebrate my 75th birthday.

Last September I had my 75th birthday and to celebrate we had a 3 day party.  Along with my friend and editor Ed Keller, we looked thru some of the footage and threw together this little video of the event for the people that were there.  If you did NOT attend, i still think you’ll have fun watching this little 7 minute “thank you”.

I’m sure I’ve missed some… Thank you too.

Families of Shifted Light

I am really proud of this movie. Its my favorite so far.   This film is a true collaboration between a number of creative people.

Last year I worked with my editor, Ed Keller to create an hour long Silent film called “Moisture”. When we showed that film in an art gallery, there were two jazz musicians that played music LIVE.  In the room that night was a young Poet, Miles Frode and he was moved to create a poem that he later recorded and we wove that into a re-edit of the film that brought it down to about 17 minutes.  THEN I got together with Martin Behnke who did an amazing job at writting an original score for this film. Then sound engineer Bradley Sauders worked his magic as he wove together the performances of multiple musicians to create the master audio track that you will hear in this final version of “Families of Shifted Light” which premiered at the Rogue Gallery of Art on January 25th 2019.
