Deaners - the Movie

Deaners - the Movie

In just days is the annual James Dean festival in Fairmount, Indiana (his hometown). An event to honor the legendary actor... and where I shot my short doc in 2015, Deaners - the Movie (below)! A crew of many helped to make it happen, and 12 film festivals later, I look back at pride on the film. And I now look forward visiting Indiana this year, seeing friends I've made through this connection, visiting the town, the James Dean Gallery, the Fairmount Historical Museum, and more... :)
