A Tribute to Sam Shepard

Influential playwright and actor Sam Shepard passed away this past July. In celebration of his life and his work, Padua Playwrights (an organization Sam started with fellow playwrights Murray Mednick and Maria Irene Fornes) hosted a star-studded night of performance and remembrances, including Ed Harris, Bill Pullman, and John Densmore, among many others.

Padua approached Butcher Bird Studios to LIVE-STREAM the event on Facebook after seeing our work on Butcher Bird Presents, our very own Facebook Live stream show where we interview creators in the digital space. This was an effort we were privileged to take part in. We switched between three live cameras, streaming a three hour extravaganza that truly was a night to remember.

Creative People… Live!

Here at Butcher Bird Studios, we are fascinated by the digital realm. During our professional and personal time spent in the digital space, we’ve come across countless innovative creators and technical wizards who fill our brains with electric ideas and share amazing stories. We decided to broadcast this experience out to the rest of the world–by creating an online platform that would give our audience a chance to get as close as possible without having to leave their homes.

“Butcher Bird Presents” is our very own weekly multi-cam real-time talk show hosted on Facebook Live. We feature special guest filmmakers, writers, musicians and other artists who innovate and create in the digital space.

Over our first 19 episodes we’ve hosted the likes of Reggie Watts, Margaret Dunlap, Charles Babb, Michaella Vu, and Felipe Smith. Each guest has shared their own unique perspective about what the digital space means to them, what challenges they’ve faced inside of it, and ultimately, how they’ve used the latest tools to launch and grow their creative works.
