A Conversation With Former Mayor Ellen Moyer (E-82)

Ellen Moyer has been around Annapolis for a long time.  She’s not a lifer (quite) but she knows the City well, and probably where all the bodies are buried. Ellen has been a community activist, and Alderwoman, a Mayor, and now heads up the Art in Public Places Commission.

This week, John sits down with Ellen to talk about whatever comes to mind. Art in Annapolis; how well new Mayor Gavin Buckley is doing; the Market House–past, present and future; City Dock redevelopment; history; the environment; and so much more.

CRABCAKE: Annapolis Film Festival | STUMPED | Robin Berghaus (March 2018)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

STUMPED

When filmmaker Will Lautzenheiser’s limbs are amputated due to a bacterial infection, his life is derailed and he turns to stand-up comedy (or sit-down comedy) as therapy. He learns to adapt through the power of his spirit, sense of humor, and his guardian “Angel.” Will becomes a candidate for an experimental limb transplant and undergoes the surgery for a double-arm transplant in the hope of regaining his independence–and once again being able to hug his family and friends!

In this Crabcake, we speak with director, Robin Berghaus from her office in Austin, TX. This is Berghaus’s first feature film and we discuss the plotline and the story surrounding Will and her empathy to tell the story.  We talk about Robin’s background and what it was like working with Will to bring his story to life. We also chat a bit about the resistance she felt being a female director in a male dominated world. SPOILER: None!

Yet another fascinating film for me and I have marked it on my list of must see movies.

CRABCAKE: Annapolis Film Festival | Butterfly Kisses | Erik Kristopher Myers (March 2018)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

BUTTERFLY KISSES

Found footage and urban legend come together in chilling fashion to spin this unsettling tale shot on location in Ellicott City, Maryland. When film students decide to capture the “Peeping Tom” ghost on camera, it creates devastating consequences in their lives as they try to prove the ghost is real and not just a special effect they made up. Blurring the line of reality and fiction, this supernatural thriller includes cameos by Eduardo Sánchez, director of The Blair Witch Project, and Matt Lake, author of Weird Maryland: Guide to Maryland’s Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets.

In this Crabcake, we speak with writer, director, and producer Erik Kristopher Myers about his second feature film, Butterfly Kisses. Erik is local to Maryland the setting is right here in Ellicott City as he tackles an urban legend from a different angle. We talk about his interest in filmmaking, his preference in spices for crabs, and why we never got a chance to see this film last year!

This is an intriguing movie for me and I have checked it off on my list of must see movies.
