Announcing A New WCAF Project
BENEATH the DRAGONWOOD TREES
An Original Musical Fairytale Audio Book - Animated Film Project
As a writer, choreographer, composer and director, I wanted to create a story the whole family could enjoy. A story that melts together, all our favorite fairy tales into one great movie. A comedy filled with unforgettable characters.
Beneath the Dragon Wood Trees is an eBook and live action animated feature.
Please go to the Beyond The Dragonwood Tree link for an intriguing sample of the opening story with our cast of professional actors in song, video, and fun illustrations.
ENCORE for RUBY
Written, Directed, Produced by Margot Jones for PBS
Ruby Asquith Christensen's recollections reach from the early days of vaudeville, traveling across the United States in a 1934 Cadillac with the Christensen Brothers, to associations with Eugene Loring, George Balanchine, The Metropolitan Opera Ballet, and the formation of the San Francisco Ballet. Her memories and encounters with Alicia Alonzo, Anges De Mille and Ezio Pinza are fascinating and enchanting stories. Encore for Ruby is laced with archival ballet footage from the late 20's and 30's.
WCAF's 60 minute documentary, "Encore for Ruby", the story of an American Ballerina and the San Francisco Ballet was directed by Margot Jones and premiered on PBS throughout the nation.

She was Northern California's major casting agent for such films as Star Wars and American Graffiti. She was a friend of West Coast Arts Foundation and is greatly missed.
"As a Director and a writer it is important that an affordable venue exists for the development of new works. WCAF is the only venue of its kind networking with playwrights, choreographers, composers, painters, poets and more, to offer a place in which one can experiment and produce new works."
