Home is wherever I’m with you

Tim Johnson brings families together at ‘Home’

By Michael J. Casey
I’ve just always been fascinated by what happens when you take a doodle and breathe life into it,” animation director Tim Johnson says, describing his career and passion.

Film-to-table

Mitch Dickman on localizing Colorado’s film scene

By Michael J. Casey
This might be a little naÔve,” director Mitch Dickman tells Boulder Weekly. “But I’ve been... talking about this film-to-table idea. I think the food community has done a tremendous job of capitalizing on the farm-to-table movement. I don’t think film is all that dissimilar.”

Diving into a sticky situation
