Homer-based filmmakers finalists in music video contest

Homer-based filmmakers Tehben and Jebarri Dean are one of five finalists in F Magazine’s F-Action music video contest. The Dean brothers produced and filmed a video for “Tiny Birch Basket,” a song by Michael Howard, and featured the puppetry of Buzz Schwall, the Alaska puppet maker who died this summer. Tehben Dean was the 2012 first-place winner for his video of Caressa Starshine’s “I Fall for You.” The Dean brothers also spend part of their time in Portland, Ore. About 50 filmmakers entered the contest judged by Lower 48 film and video industry professionals. 

“It’s not only exciting to see so many entries come in for this competition, but so many really talented, artistic entries too,” said Teeka Ballas, F Magazine publisher.
