Klamath Film has added two new members to its Board of Directors with the addition of Chuck Edson and Stephen Kardell. Both will serve three-year terms on the Klamath Film board.
Stephen Kardell is originally from Los Angeles, California. He has worked in the motion picture industry for over 20 years; as a freelance location scout and manager. His experience includes independent films, episodic television, commercials, and music videos. With his camera in hand, Stephen always looks for something cool to discover and shoot. Now living in southern Oregon, he continues to work as a freelance scout and photographer.
Chuck Edson was raised in Eureka, Calif., and graduated in 1970 with an MA in Psych from a college now known as Cal Poly at Humboldt. He has lived in Oregon since then, working in criminal justice and other human services, and retired here in 2000 as director of Community Corrections (parole and probation) for Klamath and Lake Counties. Since retiring Chuck has taught at KCC, and OIT, counseled sexual offenders and volunteered in services to foster children. National unrest motivates him to explore the human condition and the duty to improve political tolerance and understanding through the nonpartisan political discourse organization Braver Angels. He see the current phenomenon of independent film as an extraordinary tool to this end.
Chuck and Stephen join a board that recently had a resignation from secretary Joyce Dickens. The board will be losing three members at the end of 2022 when their terms expire: Chris Anderson, Ann Cavanaugh, and Mark Shapiro.
