Tumblr and New York’s PBS station THIRTEEN have partnered to showcase on TV the work of Tumblr’s filmmakers, both aspiring and established.
THIRTEEN’s ‘Reel 13’ movie night airs a short film, voted online favorite of the week and broadcast to public TV’s largest market. For the month of May, ‘Reel 13’ will source the works of Tumblr’s creative community: All you have to do is enter your short film via the ‘Reel 13’ contest websitebetween now and March 31. Be sure to include your Tumblr URL for consideration for the 12 May finalists for ‘Reel 13 Tumblr Month.’
Three Tumblr user films will be selected each week and put to an online vote, with four winners to air on THIRTEEN.
You can submit a film for consideration any time and still win down the line (‘Reel 13’ is an ongoing initiative of local public TV), but prizes during ‘Reel 13 Tumblr Month’ include $600.00 and a feature on Tumblr Storyboard.
Follow along with ThirteenNY on Tumblr and tag #reel13 to watch and vote on Tumblr Month short film finalists.
Based in Hamburg, Germany, Carina Crenshaw creates delicate paintings that experiment with color to convey different lighting conditions and moods. Crenshaw’s brushstrokes reminiscent are at times reminiscent of 20th-century abstract painting: blocks of color are built up next to one another to create works that appear flat despite their luminous effect. Crenshaw’s works zero in on subjects’ faces; they don powerful expressions that seem to place them in rich narrative contexts that the viewer must piece together based on the limited information. Take a look at some of Carina Crenshaw’s work below, images courtesy of the artist. MORE: http://hifructose.com/2013/01/14/carina-crenshaws-luminous-expressive-close-ups/
