Looking for Mr. Stieglitz:
To get things started, we decided to produce a short, “Looking for Mr. Stieglitz,” where Georgia O'Keeffe meets a stranger at 291 and discovers she is ready for her future. We cast Rachel de la Torre as O’keeffe and veteran actor Tone Forrest as Hodge Kirnon, the stranger. All under the steady hand of producer, Erica Mehaffy we shot with the "Red Epic Camera System," with David Schweitzer at the helm at the Greer Garson Sound Stages and on location in Santa Fe November 2011. Doug Werby in San Francisco is on the edit and composer, Stephen Barber in Austin to do the music in 2012. The Film was completed and was featured in three Festivals: Carmel California, Santa Fe New Mexico both in 2013 and the Langston Hughes African American Film Festival in Seattle Washington this year.
