Victoria Jorgensen – Filmmaker
Not long after moving to this side of the Bay I received a call from Creative Pinellas requesting I mentor one of their Emerging Artist grant recipients, dancer Kellie Harmon. Kellie wanted to learn more about using video in her projects.
While attending rehearsals for Kellie’s upcoming show at MFA, I met dancer Helen Hansen French and the amazing new renaissance artist Elizabeth A. Baker. I was stunned by their talent and knew immediately I wanted to work with them in the future.
I had that opportunity when Elizabeth allowed me use a piece of her music as part of my installation, Your Turn.
A year later, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Helen Hansen French on Alice Ferrulo Stampfle’s performance piece, Tied. I wrote the narration which premiered at The Dalí Museum and showed again at The Studio@620.
My life is richer and my art is stronger from my experiences with these women.
