Was it something i didn’t say?

I hope so. Movies, by their nature, are studies in economy, in emotions under-expressed, in showing not explaining. The best writing in film is subtext,...

JUNE-JULY2014 Jay Craven directing PETER AND JOHN at sea “holding on for dear life.” Quite an experience. Our cover story if about Jay as a teacher and independent filmmaker in Vermont where he leads the Movies from Marlboro film intensive program where twenty young professionals mentor and collaborate with thirty students from ten colleges. The film was prepped in Vermont and shot on Nantucket in April and May of this year starring Jacqueline Bisset, Gordon Clapp, Christian Coulson, Shane Patrick Kearns, Diane Guerrero and Gary Farmer. The film is based on a Guy de Maupassant’s groundbreaking novel and it tells the story of two brothers whose relationship strains when the younger one receives a strange inheritance. Then, a mysterious young woman arrives on the island, attracting both brothers. The film is set in 1872 Nantucket, after the decline of whaling, before the rise of tourism, and in the wake of the Civil War. This film is now in edit and makes a wonderful story set in one of New England’s famous summer film festival towns and our cover story will be good reading for thousands of filmmakers on the festival circuit, which this film may very well be on next season. Jay Craven is an IMAGINE “Imaginnaire” and celebrated filmmaker and says of the intensive film projects, “Marlboro College and the participating principal partner colleges (Wellesley, Mount Holyoke, Boston College, Boston University, Sarah Lawrence, University of Vermont, Smith and Lyndon State) deserve special thanks for this—and for also facilitating the most fulfilling teaching experiences I’ve had—inspired by education pioneer John Dewey’s call for “intensive learning that enlarges meaning through the shared experience of joint action.”

When there’s great news in the region I notice it!

The Massachusetts economy grew at an estimated 2.6 percent annual rate in the first quarter according to the UMass Donahue Institute and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. Thrilling because that’s far faster than the national economy’s 0.1 percent annual growth rate that the federal Department of Commerce reported this morning and that’s with our 2.6 factored in. Further, the latest MassBenchmarks report also show significant growth in wages during the first quarter of this year, with statewide salary income increasing at a 15% annual rate and spending on taxable items grew at an estimated 6.1 percent.
