Jonathon Marrs (Art '03) screened a film, With You, at the Experimental Film
Festival PDX in Portland, OR in May. With You is a collaborative film based on conceptual performances done by Jonathan Marrs and Josh Ferdaszewski. These actions are woven into a conversation, an effort to express and understand.

Jonathon is currently the Lead Photographer and Cinematographer for Atelier Pictures, based in Portland, OR.
