Making Movies Contemporary Film & Video Series

This series showcases filmmakers and media artists from all over New York State. The screenings are held at Auburn Public Theater Cinema, 108 Exchange Street; suggested admission is $5.

Video artist, teacher and project coordinator Terry Cuddy shared, “This will be ‘Making Movies’ ninth year! I started the series in 2004 with Stephanie Schuster from the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center (SMAC), with the goal of bringing world class media artists to Auburn. These artists show their work, and then discuss their creative process. Our intent was to inspire people to make their own videos. Sometimes the artists also present to my class at BOCES and share their work with my students.”

Schweinfurth Program Director Allison Mitura shared more about the collaboration with Cuddy and the program’s funders. “Terry is an amazing partner. His knowledge of the field is broad and current and he chooses a range of interesting artists to introduce to the Auburn community. ‘Making Movies’ is funded by the New York State Council on the Arts Electronic Media and Film grants as well as The Arts Council of the Southern Finger Lakes Presentation Funds. Finally, Making Movies is also funded by the Everett Charitable Trust. I am excited about the expansion of the series this year with the addition of the residency at BOCES. Students will be Making Movies right here in Auburn.”

Cayuga Museum Theodore Case Film Festival 2012 Program

This festival honors the role of Auburnian Theodore Case and his Case Research Laboratory. Case forever changed the movie industry through his work on the sound-on-film process in the 1920s. Our mission is to honor Case’s experimental legacy by promoting media research and the screening of original visual media projects in Central New York.

This year’s program is called A Case Retrospective, Sound-on-Film: An Industry

Remade, with reviews of the work of this great American inventor, it touches on the birth of narrative film as well. It takes place in conjunction with the restoration of the Carriage House Annex behind the Cayuga Museum of History & Art. This was the original site of Case’s test film production studio and will now be a multipurpose theater known as ‘Theater Mack.’ It will be one of the venues of the inaugural Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival this summer.

Brister Mills Lofts Readies for Tenants

Three years ago, Positively Auburn featured a story on C.W. Brister Mills, then in its infancy renovation phase. Now the first phase of property improvements on this historic 17,000 sq. ft. building are close to being completed, and the Kyle family is actively seeking seven loft tenants for this unique residential complex. The second phase of the project will add 4 – 5 more spaces, making a total of 11-12 lofts.

Snapshot History

C.W. Brister & Sons was founded in 1900 as a flour mill and remained active through 1982 when it was purchased by Birkett Mills in Penn Yann. The mill is located at 201 North Street along the railroad tracks on the north end of Auburn, near the intersection of Standart Avenue. Abandoned and left to decay, KyleCroft Development bought the building in 2007 with the vision of converting it back to its former glory, yet as a loft apartment complex.

Style & Amenities

The property consists of seven custom-built apartments ranging in size from 900 – 1600 sq. ft. KyleCroft restored the building while maintaining the industrial character of the structure and adding a modern architectural design. Details such as exposed electrical conduit and caged lighting were original to the site, and were maintained as an industrial-style design element. Silver metal flashing was used to frame the expansive windows. The open floor plan ensures no space is lost to hallways and connecting corridors.

There are three two-bedroom apartments, and four authentic New York City style lofts. Each apartment is equipped with stainless steel appliances, butcher-block counter/bar and A/C. Each space has their own personal 9 ‘x 12’ deck off the back for entertaining, and walk-in closets for spacious storage. Exposed brick walls, high ceilings, poured concrete radiant heated floors, thick wood beams and outdoor decks make the perfect backdrop for chic city living. The developer has maintained the maximum amount of green space surrounding the property, to allow for a park-like setting for the residents. The property’s back view showcases Auburn’s industrial past, with the renowned International Harvester complex and Finger Lakes Railway as the backdrop.

Keepin’ it Green

A major portion of the complex’s redevelopment supplies were utilized from reclaimed materials from deconstructed factories in Brooklyn, vintage doors from Cornell University, and local lumber from Mennonite and Amish saw mills. KyleCroft Development is a family business dedicated to the revitalization of local brownfield properties and derelict buildings. The family and a few close friends did nearly all of the renovation work on this project, with no financial assistance from grants.

Green elements include:

  • Heated floors using high-efficiency boilers
  • On demand hot water
  • Locally sourced and harvested woods from Mennonite and Amish saw mills
  • High-efficiency mini split air conditioning units
  • Spray foam insulation

Serving Young Professionals

The target demographic for Brister Mills tenants is young professionals. Grant Kyle, Project Manager, is in his mid-20s, and sees a gap in adequate housing options for this age bracket. The Kyles hosted an exclusive open house event for IGNITE, Cayuga County’s young professionals group in mid-April that was attended by 75+ people. To view the project renderings and floor plans visit http://www.bristermills.com/.

If anyone is interested in learning more, please contact Grant Kyle at KyleCroft Development. He can be reached by phone at 315.604-1608 or by e-mail grantkyle.kylecroft@gmail.com.
