Christian Schuller wanted to be an astronaut or a pro basketball player. Too tall for spaceships and too short for the NBA, he found his place as a creator of images and stories.
The Morristown resident will share his tips about making documentaries, at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, July 25, 2018, at the 70 South Gallery.
Schuller’s free talk will focus upon his film The Gateway Totem Project, about twin sculptures erected in 2016 at the Early Street Community Garden to celebrate Morristown’s immigrant history.
Musician Aedan McEvoy, composer of the documentary’s soundtrack, also will discuss her collaboration with Schuller.
Schuller is co-director of The Creature Show, a web series about endangered species of New Jersey. His first documentary, Growtown Motown, chronicled the creation of Grow It Green Morristown’s Early Street Community Garden.
He also has shot, produced, directed, and edited projects for Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, foundations, and small businesses. Clients include Johnson & Johnson, the Knight Foundation, Verizon, Edible Jersey, GUESS Eyewear, WhiteWave Foods, and Morris Arts.
McEvoy has a degree in music theory & composition from the John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University, and is a member of the New York Songwriters Circle, American Harp Society and the International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen.
Wednesday’s presentation is part of the Mayo Performing Arts Center’s Arts in the Community series.
