Scott Braucht, Spencer Garland, Jordan Shelby
Scott Braucht is an Oregon based filmmaker, all starting when he got his hands on a VHS camera at the age of eight. Since then he has trained, interned and received a Certificate with the NW Film Center while producing several shorts. His films have been seen in festivals around the U.S. including Newfest: N.Y.’s Premier LGBT Film Festival. Scott has also volunteered with numerous film and art venues in the Portland area. When not working on his own projects, Scott usually collaborates with other filmmakers working as either art department or assistant editor on their films. He is currently working on future shorts, music videos and a feature length documentary.
Spencer Garland is a visual artist from Boise, Idaho. Influenced and alienated the blockbusters of his upbringing, he is interested in creating new Black narratives and showcasing Black experiences. Garland evokes a Black sci-fi fantasy with every project, and hopes his rejection of what Black media is “supposed to look like” will inspire the youth of his upcoming after-school film project BRENDA ARTS. He will be sharing selections from his recent music video work with artists Uncommon Nasa, Armand Hammer, milo, MC Paul Barman, and Open Mike Eagle.
Jordan Shelby is an artist from the west coast. Shelby’s unfussy, deliberate documentations center less her voice than her perception, cataloging her experience in torrential assemblages of sound and image. Her highly personal output reveals herself to herself. She lives and works in the Portland area, and her current art practices experiment with textiles, design and video.
