About the Artist

Trenton Payne (Bothell) received a 2005 GAP to defray the costs of his documentary The David La Terre Interviews: the Man in Brown. The funds will specifically go towards purchasing a set of lavalieres (recording microphones) and a light kit, to aid in shooting at some of the venues where his subject performs. The purchase of this equipment will allow Payne to be more flexible in the time limitations and allow for firm quality control in finishing his film on David LaTerre, a literary genius who lives alone in government subsidized housing. “I am capturing how he turns what is a life-immobilizing mood disorder for many into an avenue to be free to write, to perform, and try to be a functioning part of a local literary society,” says Payne.
