MATTHEW CARR

// events coordinator //

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Matthew is an architecture major who loves all things design adjacent. He started creating and studying films in high school and since then, has kept that passion alive despite spending most of his time hunched over a drafting board. Matt hopes to someday work in the humanitarian sector of the design profession and use his film background to document his work. When he isn’t he drawing up plans, making grilled cheese, or having a small existential crisis, he likes to backpack, take photographs and adventure around Portland while listening to wayyy too many true crime or music podcasts.

Sam Schrader has lived in Portland, Oregon his whole life. He has had a passion for film and filmmaking since a young age, so it seems only natural that he is a film major at PSU. His interests in film are very broad but he has a particular fondness for indie, experimental film. As a projectionist he is delighted to be able to work with 35mm and 16mm film, a rare opportunity these days (and getting rarer every day).

Zeami Eccles-Irwin was born in Hokkaido Japan and moved to Beaverton when he was four. As a film major, he has come to admire the complexity of filmmaking and has a special appreciation for low-budget movies that find unique ways to do more with less. He is most interested in a film’s formal qualities, enjoying everything from the precision editing of golden age Hollywood to the expressive camerawork of 70s Italian horror. When he’s not scooping popcorn at the 5th Ave, you can find him in garages around town making
bad music with good people.

//  projectionist  //

After working as our publicity coordinator and finding their self in the projection booth more often than need be, she found the careful and methodical practice of working with film to be a good fit. She enjoys working with her hands, whether sewing a garment or threading a projector. As an architecture major, film minor, they are interested in the meaning in making, the ways in which a work speaks towards the time in which it is made, and carving out spaces for these sorts of dialogues to occur. Find them in the tiny window in the back of the theatre, aka the booth.

MAKAVELI GRESHAM

// cinema coordinator //

Makaveli is the Cinema Coordinator at 5th Ave! An architecture major / photo minor hailing from Oklahoma, Makaveli hopes to be a name people vaguely remember in the world of Art and Design. They can be found answering emails behind a computer, in art galleries on PSU campus, making something that could vaguely pass as art, or using an unnecessary amount of exclamation points! He holds the opinion that music videos are the best short films (Vince Staples - Prima Donna is Fire, as is Kevin Abstract - Empty).
If you see him say hi, and hope you don’t get into
an argument about hip hop with them.


AMELIA EICHLER

she/her/hers
// projectionist //

Amelia Eichler is a native Portlander. As a film major she hopes to someday be in California, saving films from deterioration in an archival warehouse. She most enjoys watching films, hopping from one antique store to another, collecting vintage postcards, roller skating to disco music, and listening to her plethora of Dean Martin records. She loves a good musical and her favorite era in film is the 1930s (but her passion is strong for all films made during the classic hollywood era). You can find her at The Hollywood Theatre or at the local roller rink.
