"Spielberg NEVER had to deal with this."

The Man.
The Myth.
The Legend.

    I met Edgar Blair my very first semester at Grand Valley State University in 1997. We immediately connected, it was like meeting a long lost friend. I respect the man so much, that when he said a sweater looked good on me... I bought it. I had never bought a sweater before that fateful day at Structure.
    Three semesters later and the school film projects only look better and better. Ed wrote the treatment for the Fall of the House of Usher 16mm film, which was chosen out of 4 other films to be played at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts downtown Grand Rapids during the Usher gallery showing. Derek Butler's 16mm film was also chosen from our GVSU 16mm class.

    Ed worked on My Life With the Gopis, GVSU's 1998 Summer Film. There aren't many jobs more involved then loading the film in the camera. Ed is a take charge kinda guy

    It was Ed in all his Spanish speaking glory that coined the phrase;


We were on a bit of a Robert Rodriquez kick after reading Rebel Without a Crew, editing something or other in Media Production 1, when we felt comfortable admitting that yes, maybe one of us has 1...

or maybe we both have 1 1/2....

"Indie film is not a genre,
it's a punch line."

- Edgar Blair


On the set, we referred to the unnamed film as
"Which Blair Project"
"Coaster Killers."

If you were this suave, you'd study filmmaking, too. Film producers just throw money at him.

Here you will find Ed's reflection on the 1998 Summer Film Experience.
