Hi everyone. Jonathan here. I’m very proud to announce the premier of a short documentary film I worked on with Steven Yazzie entitled: Paddle and Anvil: a Piipaash Pottery Tradition, about Master Potter Ron Carlos of the Piipaash Tribe on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community nestled in the center of Metro Phoenix, Arizona. The film will debut at The Heard Museum this Thursday, Feb 11th at 1:30 pm. I’m very honored Steve showed me the ropes of making a short film, and to collaborate with his film production company Digital Preserve. (You can see a short bio of me on the site if you scroll down here)

For: Paddle and Anvil: a Piipaash Pottery Tradition, I functioned as Story Consultant, Assistant Editor, Writer, occasional Second Camera, follow up Interviewer, Production Assistant and much more. It was a challenging and rewarding experience, and I was very privileged to again collaborate with Steve and also pleased to be currently working on more projects for Digital Preserve.

See the info on The Heard Museum website here (the link to the trailer there is broken) and check out the trailer for the film here.

I hope to have a link to the full length shortly after the premier.
