Jon Salvia is a Masters student in Film and Video at American University in Washington, D.C.

My friend Gayla Lee is a glass artist based out of Annapolis, MD. She creates beautiful platters, jewelry, and assorted glass based art. The idea was to film her creation process and tell her story. She was kind enough to let me do this short documentary bio on her for a film school project. Check out her work at gaylalee.com and support an aspiring artist!

Putty Hill is a new feature-length film project by Baltimore filmmaker Matt Porterfield (director of Hamilton). A fundraiser and preview screening for the film is happening on Monday, February 1 at The Charles Theater at 9PM. Don’t miss it! RSVP

Putty Hill: A young man dies of a heroin overdose in an abandoned house in Baltimore. On the eve of his funeral, family and friends gather to commemorate his life. Their shared memories paint a portrait of a community hanging in the balance, skewed by poverty, city living, and a generational divide, united in their pursuit of a new American Dream.
