Producers of an authorized documentary about Catherine Coulson – I Know Catherine, The Log Lady – have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise production funds. In September 2015, Catherine passed away from cancer four days after filming her final scene on Twin Peaks: The Return. The documentary will explore her life as The Log Lady and more, including her work as one of the first women in the International Cinematographer’s Guild.
Last fall, documentary filmmakers visited Ashland, Oregon to connect with people who knew Catherine; she was a well-known performer with Ashland’s Oregon Shakespeare Festival for 22 seasons. Patrick participated on both sides of the camera, as documentary cinematographer and an interviewee. He filmed the Log Lady sequences for the new season of Twin Peaks: The Return, and worked with Catherine on the feature films Calvin Marshall and Redwood Highway.
