Ten years ago I wanted to be a filmmaker than I found myself getting frustrated with the system so I took up painting and slowly one painting at a time I came to realize that I could make the movies I wanted to make in one frame, for a fraction of the cost and without a cast or crew. Even though I really focused on painting I did teach myself various other visual elements such a photography, architectural rendering, creative digital work, digital video and music. Now with ten years art experience and working on film sets and access to user friendly technology, I hope to be return to make a serious effort of making digital film inspired projects….and for ‘nearly’ free without cast or crew, pretty crazy how it all works out.
Although this is technically a digital collage, it illustrates my point in showing the painting, photography, and cinematic storytelling components to my work in general.
