Zephyr (1994-2000) is a six-part mini-series, which I wrote and directed for Amherst Community Television, Amherst Massachusetts. This six-year project won five placements in Access Television Contests. Three episodes have been placed in finalist positions; two have won first prize. Besides private donations and in-kind services, Zephyr received several grants from The Amherst Arts Council and the Pelham Arts Council.
