Getting the Artist in Focus
Until you get behind the lens, the mic, the mixing board--get your hands dirty in the creative process--you may find it tough to fully grasp the work that goes into making art. A photo is more than just an image, it is a composition. A photographer slaves in the black hole of a dark room, elbow-deep in chemicals to deliver their message to the world. In the same way, a film is more than just actors and bright lights, it is a collaboration. I want to illuminate more than just what shows up on the surface. I want to acknowledge the people that really make movies happen: cinematographers, designers, technicians. These people form the guts that keep a body of work in motion.
