Kerry Kazokas, a respected local artist, teacher, actor and filmmaker shared her experiences as a screenwriter and film director on Sunday, December 12, at the Pioneer Valley Regional School's Kiva Auditorium.
       Her talk was the third in a series of presentations by local professional filmmakers, as part of the Transition Towns film project, "Envisioning Our Communities in 2030-Looking Back to Our Future."

      A PVRS graduate, Kazokas spent much of her childhood in Northfield. She spoke about the process of writing the screenplay, "Free to Fly", which then led to co-directing and co-producing, with Michael Schena, the film with a local production company, Northern Lights.  Kazokas elaborated on the process of character and story development and discussed, from an artistic perspective, the importance of camera angles and shots to effectively create the tone of the story. Additionally, she talked about engaging local talent and working with a "zero budget project."
