CAmm announces 2010 CAmm Fellow, Miguel Sabogal!

Creative Alliance MovieMakers announces filmmaker Miguel Sabogal has been chosen CAmm Fellow of 2010! One CAmm Fellow is chosen each year to receive extended free use of CAmm Cage gear, the CAmm Media Lab, and editing suite. Miguel Sabogal is an indie filmmaker calling Baltimore home. He worked as a scientist for years and recently made the leap to filmmaking , and earning a Post-Baccalaureate at MICA.. His hypnotic, otherworldly experimental narrative films have screened at the Maryland Film Fest, Hampden Film Fest, and MICA. Sabogal is also co-founder of The Hexagon, a vibrant indie film/music venue in the burgeoning Station North Arts District.

"We are really excited to have Miguel as our new Fellow" says CAmm Director Kristen Anchor. "He is a filmmaker with the emphasis on FILM. He works in good old 16mm film, the real thing at a time when fewer and fewer people do." As part of the Fellowship CAmm will premiere Sabogal's film, a feature length period film, set in 1930’s depression-era Baltimore, about a teenage boy and his mysterious uncle, he will create during his fellowship. Sabogal will utilize CAmm’s collection of 16mm cameras and sound gear to shoot the film.

Creative Alliance’s CAmm Fellowship promotes growth and expertise in filmmaking and time-based media arts of all genres by encouraging the development of finished, professional film, video and media arts projects. Each year CAmm awards one Fellowship to a filmmaker or artist working in time-based media living and working in Maryland, for a specific film/video project planned for completion in that year. Fellows receive extended free use of CAmm Cage gear, the CAmm Media Lab, and editing suite. The Fellowship also includes a work-in-progress critique with established members of the film community (determined by the subject and format of the project), a public artist talk midway through the project, and concludes with a screening opportunity at The Patterson.
