Howard debuts 'Bass: the Movie' in California
Remember those old television fishing shows–- the ones that aired on weekend mornings with long droning music and scant narration? Charlottesville filmmaker Jamie Howard does, and he's trying to reinvent the genre with a more cinematic perspective. He recently returned from the California premiere of his latest film, Bass: The Movie, which was previewed early this year via snippets on ESPN. Howard last appeared in the Hook in 2004 after bringing his first picture, In Search of a Rising Tide, to the Jackson Hole Film Festival. We photographed him in the lobby of the soon-to-open Jefferson Theater on November 17, a month after his film's debut. The film's not yet on DVD, but he's taking orders on his website.
