At the end of March and beginning of April, three big things happened to Henry.
Master of all art
First, he successfully defended his thesis and earned an MFA (Master of Fine Art) in Natural History and Science Filmmaking. He started this degree before we started dating (the second time) and somehow finished it while getting married, starting a business and having two kids. As someone who stressed out trying to finish a Master’s while living alone with almost no other responsibility, I’m impressed.
Here’s his thesis film. Unfortunately, I can’t embed videos from Vimeo, so you have to head over there to check it out.
And here’s what someone wrote about it. Oh yes, it’s highly acclaimed.
And if you are in Livingston on April 27, you can watch it on the big screen at the BOOMA Film Forum.
Second, he had a birthday. This is important because for three months of every year he brags about being younger than me. Until the end of December, we are the same age and he can stop referring to me as “an older woman.”
Award winning filmmaker
Third, the series of web films he made for Polar Bears International won “Best Web Series” at the International Wildlife Film Festival. We’ll be going to Missoula in a couple weeks so he can attend the conference and accept the award.
If you want to check out some of those short films, go here. To get started, watch “Habits and Behavior” and “Conservation.”
What’s it like to be married to such a successful(and same-aged) man? Super wonderful.
