The Story

I actually am a filmmaker, but this is for my movie theater - Eveningstar Cinema. The money raised through this campaign will not only pay for the digital projector system, but also allow me to acquire a local church and convert it into a two-screen theater with restaurant/brew-pub, thus allowing me to create an international film festival, and to continue delivering many more of the independent films that this site is helping to fund. A win-win if there ever was one.

Jen Smith - video producer/shooter/editor - Jen is a producer, director, videographer and editor. She loves inspiring and thought-provoking cinematic stories and the transformative effect they can have on an individual. In 2001 she decided to follow that passion and began working in various positions on feature films, documentaries, regional, national and international TV commercials, corporate videos and non-profit videos, predominantly in Maine and California. In the early 2000s, she was also involved with the Maine theater community as director, actor and stage manager and credits her experience in theater as enhancing her filmmaking career.  She worked nearly ten years for Catama Productions learning the ins and outs of Maine-based video production before creating MCP. Besides running her own production company, Jen enjoys collaborating with other film professionals on their own independent films, documentaries and videos.

Work is balanced by the practice of yoga, tapping into her background in a nature-based martial art, exploring Maine’s rocky coast and hiking the trails in Baxter State Park. A Maine native, Jen resides in the mid-coast area where she and her husband built a timber frame home.
