ABOUT THE FILMMAKERS
ADAM MOSER - is an artist based in Portland, OR. His practice is not medium specific but instead relies on collaboration and is heavily experiential. He creates site-specific interdisciplinary projects that cover a wide range of topics from baseball to theology. Moser is a co-founder of LIKEWISE - a member supported social practice project camouflaged as a bar. Moser also produced High and Outside - The Story of Hosford, a documentary which chronicles the story of a 20 year old pickup softball game that happens in SE Portland. He holds an MFA in Art & Social Practice from Portland State University.
EVERETT YOCKEY - is a director and cinematographer based in the rain-soaked Pacific Northwest. Growing up in Steinbeck's California —think Grapes of Wrath, not Cannery Row— where he had plenty of time to establish his voice from a young age. His passion for making movies began in middle school after realizing the skate videos he made with his friends were not going to fulfill his need to tell visual stories. He premiered his first film as a freshman in high school at a pep rally (a Blair Witch Project parody, obviously), to a standing ovation by his fellow high schoolers. At the age of 19, he moved to Los Angeles where he focused on cinematography while working at a post production facility.
Everett’s use of cinematography to approach a story is based on his personal working theory: look through the lens first to understand what the audience will see. Through his work in non-fiction along with commercial and music videos, his voice sometimes can feel like alternative facts. Everett’s work can be found on YouTube, on televisions sets in Germany and Sweden, and online in Outside Magazine and GOOD Magazine publications among others.
