UCLA professor William McDonald, Pamela Beere Briggs and artist Sue Mitchell at Riverside's Fairmount Park, the site of the trees that are the subject of her art.
UCLA professor and filmmaker William McDonald of the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television (TFT) and Pamela Beere Briggs, his collaborator and wife, recently premiered their latest documentary, "Something Like a Sabbatical," at the Riverside Art Museum.
"What she didn't know was how difficult the process would be ... and that once she started, she wouldn't want to stop," said McDonald, chair of the Department of Film, Television and Digital Media and a TFT alumnus with an M.F.A. in cinematography.
McDonald and Briggs - a writer as well as a filmmaker - first collaborated as TFT graduate students on Briggs' M.F.A. thesis film, "Out of the Rain," a short drama.
The challenges that Mitchell went through, McDonald said, reminded him of the complexities of making a portrait documentary.
Working as a cinematographer, McDonald said, poses its own artistic challenges. "You have to become invisible and yet still exert a certain amount of control over the process so that you are getting the footage you need to tell the story as you are experiencing it," he said. But since McDonald and Briggs have teamed up for 30 years, he said, "we've developed a rhythm to the way we work that is seamless and unspoken."
A lesson in facing your fears In addition to their March premiere - which drew a packed house and raised $52,000 for the museum - the filmmakers screened their film in early April at Belmont Village Westwood senior living community and in a symposium for film and television majors that McDonald teaches. "We wanted to see if Sue's story would speak to a wider audience with diverse interests and experiences," he said.
