Christopher Holmes and Lost Colony

When the credits run on the film Lost Colony, you're going to see a lot of one name: Christopher Holmes. He's the director, writer, executive producer, and editor of the film. Holmes' work tells the tale of teenage Loren living along the Outer Banks of North Carolina, navigating an over-protective mother, the pregnancy of his girlfriend, and the absence of his father.       

Today, we get to know the man behind the film, RiverRun Program Coordinator and recipient of the North Carolina Arts Council's Individual Artist Fellowship in Film and Video, Christopher Holmes. 
You can see Lost Colony at its first public screening in Winston-Salem on Sunday, November 22nd at a/perture Cinema. The film starts at 7:30pm and will be followed by a Q&A with Christopher himself. 
Piedmont Craftsmen's Fair

The annual Piedmont Craftsmen's Fair takes place November 21st and 22nd at The Benton Convention Center in downtown Winston-Salem. It features more than 120 artisans from across the Southeast, working in clay, wood, glass, leather, metal, printmaking, and much more. Attendees also have the opportunity to view demonstrations of some of these techniques.

Last year David Ford spoke with artists Jim Carpenter & Betti Pettinati-Longinotti and Fair Manager Deb Britton.

Three Lobed Recordings

For the past 15 years, Cory Rayborn has been running Three Lobed Recordings. The Jamestown, North Carolina-based record label is somewhat boutique in nature - underground music, limited editions, a focus on vinyl, and emphasis on detail and quality over quantity. The music the label releases is far flung in terms of genere - from guitar virtuosos like Daniel Bachman, Steve Gunn and William Tyler, to the psych rock of Wooden Wand & Bard Pond, to legendary noisemakers like Sonic Youth and Sun City Girls.

The label is celebrating its 15th anniversary with Parallelogram - it's a 5 LP collection housed in letterpressed matchbook style packaging. The set has already earned an 8.4 out of 10 from noted tastemaking music website Pitchfork. It includes new and unreleased music from Kurt Vile, Thurston Moore, Yo La Tengo, Hiss Golden Messenger, and many more.
