Big congratulations to Maria Abraham and Chris Nelson for winning Best Cinematography at Columbia College Chicago’s Big Screen Film Festival this year! Their film, Girl with Child, screened at the MFA thesis screening this past winter. Maria’s still in Los Angeles but I caught up with Chris because he’s editing Vannin’ for Little Cabin Films… Note to those who backed the film, your contribution made a job for this man.
We had a nice little chat and he let me take two pictures of him, one digital (above) and one on film (below) It’s great to have him in Chicago. He’s the jelly in the doughnut of an emerging doc community here.
I also want to mention that Chris was the cinematographer for Glassmaker, winner of Best Documentary at EgoFest a few years ago. Winning that award inspired us to begin The CG Project to elevate and preserve the accomplishments of our friends and family. I’m proud to use our creative platform for Chris and Maria on their accomplishment.
Enjoy his handy work in Glassmaker, a short doc on art by Katie Creyts.
