 Valerie Keller = Editor

Val about Slaw 5-11 427-timestamp=1312133383949



VALERIE KELLER has been editing films and videos since 1989, and creating her own delightfully oddball work for the past several years. She has had original work and editing work broadcast nationally, shown on cable tv & satellite networks, and screened in festivals around the world. Her experimental HD video short “Discarded” was in an exhibit called “Out of Frame: Motion Art From Mobius” at the Philadelphia Art Alliance. Writes Roberta Fallon of the Phila Weekly, “Valerie Keller’s Discarded is just beautiful. Like a slowly morphing slideshow of … weed-strewn parking lots and abandoned shopping carts with stories of miscommunication and missteps.” Her editing career is studded with 2 Emmy nominations, and in 2008, her original short “Stepping On Upworld” was screened at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in a showcase of work by instructors at Scribe Video Center.

Learn HOW with SLAW DVD.

SLAW is about how you get to school or work each morning; what you eat for lunch and not eating your dinner out of a bucket from a fried food drive-thru; treating the environment with respect; having a good home life — which basically means learning that mass consumption isn’t going to make you happy; being aware of your own community as well as the world around you; giving back to others and self education.

It’s also about the power of one — you. You can control these things as an individual; you aren’t dependent on others to achieve a happy, green, sustainable lifestyle.

SLAW a sustainable living lifestyle
