The Adults In The Room

I am super happy to be joining forces with Portland Director Andy Blubaugh to help produce his first feature film!

I've been itchin' to work on a feature again for awhile, and this film is really giving me the opportunity to throw a lot of the knowledge and experience I gained from making Tammytown and working on other projects into something extremely worthwhile. Several people kept suggesting that I join the film, but I wasn't sure I could do it. Then, the opportunity for the 4-day work week presented itself, and next thing you know...

I was compelled to start working on it after I read up on it, then fell in love with the script, and have similar warm fuzzies for Andy. It's his very personal story about his secret relationship as a teenager with a man twice his age. The unfolding stories (a present-day documentary mixed with a dramatic retelling of the past) is intriguing, tender, painful, raw, complicated and loving. I was pretty much enthralled from the moment he said "well, it's more Harold & Maude than 'To Catch a Predator'!"

awesome free event!

"Interested in how copyright law affects creative work? Itching to write your own version of copyright law? Curious to know how musicians and artists might talk to an entertainment attorney, and vice versa?

Join the UO Portland Library and Learning Commons at 6:30 pm on Thursday, July 16 for “Free Culture: Creating Copyright and Copyrighting Creation,” a lively discussion of copyright and the arts. UO alum and entertainment lawyer Peter Shaver will talk with Portland-based electropop trio YACHT, and will engage the audience in a real-time redraft of copyright law. We’ll also enjoy great local food and great drinks from local brewery New Old Lompoc.

This event is co-sponsored by the UO Portland Library and Learning Commons and UO Academic Affairs. It’s part of a larger series of summer events around themes of creativity, sustainability, and urban culture. To learn more about the series, please visit "

I became familiar with attorney Peter Shaver through my old coworker, friend & all around awesome PDX rocker Todd Morrissey when I really needed help working out the licensing for Tammytown. He was so delightfully un-lawerly and very helpful. And, after working in a law library with big fancy shmancy expensive lawyers who couldn't give a crap about the intellectual property issues of us small time artists, I was very impressed. I tihnk he's the best thing going in Portland for musicians, filmmakers, and most artists in our area.
