Frenetic Productions
If the thought of living into your eighties is frightening, let Mel Anthony convince you otherwise. The 86-year-old subject of the film Smoke, Sand and Rubber is addicted to one thing: racing fast cars. Local filmmaker Greg Brotherton (Render Me Dead) documents Anthony as he joins a vintage racing club and gets behind the wheel of a midget race car for the first time in 54 years, with his son Dennis turning the wrenches. The film also features great archival footage of car racing in the 1940’s and 1950’s, plus commentary from both Mel and Dennis Anthony. The free world premiere screening will take place tonight at 7 PM at the Shoreline Community College Theater. Mel, Dennis, and Brotherton will be on hand for a Q&A afterward. Smoke, Sand and Rubber will screen with two other documentaries about racing in the Pacific Northwest. Click the link above to read more about the film and to watch a trailer.

Shoreline Community College
Shoreline Community College (SCC) has just been approved to retool their Digital Filmmaking Technology certificate program into an Applied Associate of Arts degree. Compatible with other baccalaureate programs in the state, SCC’s new degree in Digital Filmmaking features a unique hybrid curriculum, giving film students the option to earn general education and transfer credits while completing a professional-technical degree. “We wanted students to leave not only loving film and video but also having a good, strong academic background,” program designer and instructor Ruth Gregory said of the new digital filmmaking degree. “We know that there are students who have been cheering [this] process on from the sidelines and we are excited to officially be able to share the degree with them.” Information about the AA in Digital Filmmaking is already available on the SCC website, but the school is also hosting a kickoff information event Tuesday, November 16.
