Inga Moren: Luz Marina, I'm So Excited!

Inga Moren is a joy to have in the edit studio. She’s a vibrant character who knows how to articulate her thoughts and feelings on any subject. She works as an editor, writes, and directs experimental film. She’s also worked on camera crews, post-production processing, and so much more. Originally from Colombia, she currently makes money from Universal Studios.

Inga brought her new film Luz Marina an experimental short that explores the cults of modern day and the popularity of reality television that we have lived with since the turn of the century. The film moves through spaces and ideas rapidly presenting scenes that bridge the audience from idea to idea, almost like a dream in fast-forward.

Afterwards we were pleasured with the viewing experience of a Pedro Aldomovar film, I’m So Excited! A silly, colorful, and melodramatic film. It recounts several characters on a plane voyage. The story jumps in-between from pilots in the cabin, to the stewards, and the passengers. The film is filled with drinking and bold characters.

Inga’s knowledge of film history and unique vision on what the medium can be helped make this episode especially introspective, not only on the films she presented, but also of the possibilities of using film as a storytelling device itself.

Gary Jaquez: Abuela's Luck, Children of Men

Gary Jaquez is a freelance Cinematographer based in Los Angeles.  He shoots with Fourwind often.  He was the Cinematographer on our last 2 short films.  Gary chose to present Fourwind's latest release, Abuela's Luck.  He takes us through wearing multiple hats and creative decision making on set.  He also flips the table during the event discussion and asked other people present about their roles in Abuela's Luck.  He then takes us through his hero Emmanuel Lubezki's famous Children of Men and gives us further explanation on why he's an important role model for a Latino in Hollywood.

To follow Gary's future set escapades, check out his instagram for Behind The Scenes shots on his major projects.  The next short film he worked on, Prologue, will be released by Fourwind Films later this year.
