CRABCAKE: 7th Annual Annapolis Film Festival 2019 (March 2019)

This is a long crabcake. But well worth it!

It happens every year…well at least for the past seven years! The Annapolis Film Festival is bringing more than 70 films to Annapolis March 21st to 24th and we sat down with the founders once again to see what was in store for their seventh go around of this fantastic event that has brought millions to the area economy!

Patti White and Lee Anderson are two of the busiest women in town. They operate FILMSTERS,  full fledged production company from their West Annapolis office, the wildly successful summer camp, and in their spare time…the Annapolis Film Festival which is expected to draw nearly 20,000 to Annapolis over a 4 day period.

We talk about last year’s resounding success, the improvements and changes for this year. And a little bit about some of the films you can expect to see.  Sit back, and enjoy while we talk movie to Lee Anderson and Patti White!

And then we headed across the Severn River to speak with the artist behind the graphics for the film festival and specifically about this year’s tribute to those we lost in the Capital-Gazette shootings in June 2018.

And when you are done–go buy your passes and mark your calendars for the Annapolis Film Festival 2019!

Hey..wait…that’s MY artwork you have there. A copyright chat with Joe Barsin of JEB Design (E-98)

Imagine seeing a local company sporting a great new logo only to discover that it is composed of your original artwork and was sold to the local company by a foreign firm. #Pissed

With the USNA Vs Nike/Undefeated crest war, we reached out to Joe Barsin to learn his thoughts. And we learned a LOT more! He has had his work stolen a number of times and he knows how to combat it. No lawyers are involved. From electric boats to cornhole sets.  Have a listen and definitely check out Joe Barsin from Citizen Pride and JEB Design!

Real fun episode at Mother’s Peninsula Grille in Arnold drinking beers, eating burgers and talking pirating!
