Aric Hartvig, filmmaker

In its inaugural year, the Academy has been fortunate to have Emmy-winning filmmaker Aric Hartvig as its special guest.  Aric broke bread with us, and filmed performances ranging from Bach to Berio to the ink-still-wet compositions of our composers. He interviewed the members of our Academy community, captured the beauty of the Anderson Valley even if it meant getting up at the crack of dawn for the sunrise shot, and wowed us with his superhero acrobatics in our down time.  It has even been rumored that he regularly rescued composers whose cars became stuck in errant ditches...

Aric's story will premiere in 2018.
