Jason White Interview Clips Jody Chapman

 I had the opportunity to sit in on a filming with Jason White and his crew from New Ogden Cinema, which centralizes around promoting collaborative efforts of local Utah filmmakers. Together as a group they arrange assistance in creating and developing film in Utah. The group also helps in sharing and promoting film related projects. Jason White is currently working on a promotional trailer in order to acquire funds to complete the feature length film. I personally have very little experience in film work so it was really interesting to watch the chaos that is film-making. 

When I arrived on site, I found a house that had every window and door reinforced to avoid letting in any unwanted lights or sounds. At first glance you might think they were having the house painted inside or perhaps even fumigated. Although once inside I felt the buzz of  artists enjoying the labor of their craft. Whether it was the cast going over lines between scenes with the director, adjusting camera angles or the dedicated sound tech continually adjusting his equipment. There was even a certain jovial determination amongst those involved to find a work around on a last minute camera problem.  

Afterward, Jason and I sat down for a short chat about New Ogden Cinema, his take on the progression of the film budgets, and information for those interested in becoming a part of New Ogden Cinema. I have included snap shots from the film shoot and clips from my conversation with Jason. I am looking forward to seeing the finished trailer and any other projects from New Ogden Cinema.
