So You Wanna Be Orson Welles
For the aspiring filmmaker on your list, the greatest gift package imaginable: a year's pass to the Northwest Film Forum, a membership to WigglyWorld (giving access to their workshops and equipment rental), a $250 credit toward a class at WigglyWorld, eight hours of editing at 911 Media Arts Center (where the Stranger Genius Award-winning filmmaker James Longley edited Iraq in Fragments), a consultation with local filmmaker Lynn Shelton (We Go Way Back), and a year's subscription to TheWarrenReport. And, just to get you in the mood, we're throwing in an Orson Welles mask made by longtime Stranger artist Kathryn Rathke, a gift certificate to booze-and-food emporium Rosebud, and a case of champagne! Double-reverse-backflip priceless! Opening bid: a shamefully low $1.99!

Date for One
