Jesse McLean is a media artist based in Iowa City, IA, whose work utilizes a combination of found footage and originally shot materials to examine contemporary questions about culture, technology and human behaviour. She was the recipient of the Barbara Aronofsky Latham Award for Emerging Experimental Video Artist at the 2010 Ann Arbor Film Festival, and the Overkill Award at the Images Festival in 2011. Since then her work has screened internationally, and she’s become a fixture at experimental and underground film festivals worldwide.

CFA Media Mixer – June 6 at the Hideout in Chicago!

I was asked to participate in the second Media Mixer benefit for the Chicago Film Archives and collaborated with musicians Sich Mang on a new video. See you Thursday at the Hideout! Below is more information about the event.

CFA is throwing its second annual Media Mixer benefit at the most popular watering hole in town – the Hideout!  Hosted by WBEZ’s Alison Cuddy, this party opens with music critic extraordinaire, Peter Margasak spinning the tunes and blasts its way through to the midnight hour with “musician, misfit, culture warrior and bullshitter,”BOBBY CONN & Monica Boubou! But at the heart of this fabulously fun Media Mixer is the PREMIERE of 3 video collaborations made entirely with footage from CFA. Here’s the formula:

  • CFA footage x 3 filmmakers x 3 audio artists
  • Shake them up
  • Throw 3 magical sight and sound creations up on the screen

And here’s who we’ve got:

Cauleen Smith AND The Eternals (Sponsorship partner Music Box Films and Music Box Theatre)
Jesse McLean AND Sich Mang (Sponsorship partner BRMC Group)
Alexander Stewart AND Sam Prekop (Sponsorship partner Pentimenti Films)
