Gavin Zeigler’s studio on North Ferry Road on Shelter Island was originally a gas station, and the mint 1970 GMC pickup in one of the old garage bays suggests it might still be one. But a look inside reveals an expansive space filled with large work tables, storage cabinets, a paint-spattered wooden floor, a few paintings, and, usually, a couple of dogs that pretty much have the run of the place.

The Hamptons International Film Festival announced their annual awards Monday morning at the East Hampton Presbyterian Church.
The festival’s Audience Awards went to Stephen Frears’s “Philomena,” a drama starring Dame Judi Dench, and “Desert Runners,” Jennifer Steinman’s documentary about the 4 Deserts Race Series of 150-mile ultramarathons. Irene Taylor Brodsky’s “One Last Hug (…And a Few Smooches): Three Days at Grief Camp” won the Audience Award for Best Short.
Filmed in Bellport over a period of 18 days for $700,000, "The Maid's Room" has the look of an expensive Hollywood production. “We did everything we could to make a local film, but not a small film,” says Michael Walker, its director.
