Americans for the Arts Supports Old School New School

April 20, 2010

Americans for the Arts, a leading national organization advancing art and culture in the US, has become a supporter of Old School New School! All of us on the OSNS team are very excited and deeply touched by their interest in our efforts to encourage self-development in creativity. A big thank you to the folks at AFtA!

This year marks their 50th anniversary which will be celebrated in style at their annual conference. It’s great to see AFtA thriving for so long; America needs all the arts advocates it can get. But don’t take my word for it, listen to Robert Redford.


Allen Moore in Old School New School

April 1, 2010

Shot Allen Moore March 31st for Old School New School. Allen is a world class cinematographer and one of Ken Burns’ go-to guys. In addition to Allen’s numerous independent work, he’s shot Florentine Films’ The Civil War, Baseball, National Parks and much more.

Allen is a very intellectual kind of guy. His thoughts on success, identity, and finding one’s place in the world will add a lot to the series. I hope to have some clips up soon.

Thanks to Allen and his family for letting us invade their beautiful home! And three cheers to DPs Jack Reybold and Phil Rosensteel for capturing the best light and a great conversation.
