"Block Party Tuesday" is a short, experimental documentary that follows a group of liberal, mostly unemployed 20- and 30-somethings to a summer block party hosted by their historic neighborhood church in Portland, Oregon. Also featuring a mysterious, colorful orb that appears at 02:18!

The Film Financing

I shot and edited "Block Party Tuesday" in a period of approximately 36 hours, using the best equipment I could afford--which isn't much. I regularly work with little to no budget, so I'm used to putting a lot of effort into creating good content. I have not received or applied for any filmmaking grants before because I have not tried to tackle any costly projects yet. In general, I just produce lo-fi videos in the studio that is my bedroom.
