Turtle Soup: Creative Careers
February 21, 2020 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFeed your mind and your belly with Turtle Soup, featuring a presentation on historic Black Hills figures or events and a bowl of soup provided by Angel’s Catering.
This week, Kristin Donnan and Chris VanNess present, "Creative Careers."
Do you have to live in an overpopulated city to have a successful creative life that “feeds your soul” but also provides a living? Two local “creatives” talk about what it takes to breathe life into their film, publishing, and nonprofit initiatives.
Kristin Donnan has co-authored three books, ghostwritten two, and edited more than 15. Her book “Rex Appeal,” written with Peter Larson, became the source material for the Emmy-winning 2014 documentary “Dinosaur 13.” She assisted this film during production, regularly contributes to television, film, and IMAX documentary project development, and has been an active nonprofit volunteer.
Chris VanNess owns Crow Ridge Productions, a company that has won multiple national Telly and local ADDY awards for television commercials. She’s worked on films such as “National Treasure: Book of Secrets” and “Neither Wolf Nor Dog.” In 2009, she co-founded the Black Hills Film Festival and now serves as executive director. She has produced several independent films, conducts research for IMAX documentary projects, and has served on nonprofit boards.
The event is included with museum admission - $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and half-off for members. Your advance reservation is appreciated! Call 394-6923.
