Silverdocs 2007.3: Stop Making Sense

Silverdocs 2007.3: Stop Making Sense

Silverdocs carries on… It’s been non-stop films for me. Jarren has arrived after a serious weather delay. Our dogs got out of the yard mysteriously this morning, but all’s well again. More and more filmmakers have arrived as the weekend begins. Jury deliberations are coming up tonight… and then, we will have our winner. Here’s some photos of the crazy fun chaos in Silver Spring, Maryland:
