Get Schooled

Scott wrote Tales From the Hood, Caught Up, Sprung and Waist Deep (among others). He produced Stepfather II, To Sleep with Anger, Love and a .45, Menace II Society and the criminally underrated Fear of a Black Hat (among others). He’s currently directing episodes of a new crime series for HBO. Bottom line: The man knows his stuff. If you wanna know what he knows, head over to Scott’s web site and check out the details. Scott’s two-day intensive will take place Saturday and Sunday, March 19 and 20, and will cover everything from preproduction to production to post-production. Guest lecturer Dave Parker will be there to discuss how he wrote and directed his new feature Coldwater for $10,000. Additionally, producer and Red Shotgun Productions CEO Mark Sonoda will take questions on independent financing. If you’re serious about the biz of independent films, this is the crash course for you. The event will take place at Fans of Film (504 Yale SE) from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Register online and you can get in for $199.

The Wild West

On Wednesday, March 16, The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance will sponsor a special screening of the Kirk Douglas film Lonely Are The Brave at Guild Cinema in Nob Hill. The film is based on the Edward Abbey novel about the struggle between the “last cowboy” and the encroaching modern civilization. The film was shot in Albuquerque and the surrounding Sandia Mountains in 1962 and is considered a classic of the Western genre. The film screening will include a presentation by Santa Fe-based aural historian Jack Loeffler on “The Life and Times of Ed Abbey.” Loeffler wrote a 2001 book based on his experiences with the iconic environmental activist. Joining him will be Dave Foreman, founder of the Rewilding Institute, who will give some perspective on Albuquerque in the early ’60s. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. Events get underway at 7 p.m. Log on to NM Wild’s web site for more info.
