Film Clips, Conversation & A Book Signing May 9th at 7 pm

The NW Film Center welcomes Portland filmmaker Kelley Baker for an evening of film clips, conversation, and a book signing celebrating his new book THE ANGRY FILMMAKER SURVIVAL GUIDE PART TWO: SOUND CONVERSATIONS WITH (un)SOUND PEOPLE.

The book debunks many production myths and gives filmmakers and audiences a rare behind-the-scenes look at what goes into making a great audio track. In addition to directing many features (BIRDDOG, THE GAS CAFE, KICKING BIRD) and shorts, Baker has worked as a sound designer on films such as MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO, GOOD WILL HUNTING, FINDING FORRESTER, FAR FROM HEAVEN, and THE ADVENTURES OF MARK TWAIN.

Along with excerpts from his own films, the evening will feature clips from classic works by Hitchcock, Spielberg, and many others that illustrate the importance of the relationship between sound and image. (80 mins.)

Thanks to the NW Film Center promotional partner Powell’s Books.

The event will be at the Whitsell Auditorium (1219 SW Park Ave, Portland 97205) inside the Portland Art Museum.
