"Ink & Water" : finally complete

After over a year and a half, our sort-of-a-music-video is finally complete! Ink & Water was made with no CG, just water, ink, and some creative lighting. Shot by Boa Simon on 35mm and on the RED, the project was edited by Nate Orloff to music by Brian Andrews, who wrote the score after being inspired by the footage we'd shot.

Turn up that bass and enjoy!

Le Zola and "Contentment"

Cinema Le Zola in Villeurbanne

Last weekend I had the privilege to join a number of other international filmmakers at the Villeurbanne Short Film Festival, in Lyon, France.

There were long shorts, short shorts, and Contentment played for the first time in front of an audience on the big screen. It looked great, and though it didn't win any prizes, the audience cheered me when I went up afterword for the interview, and told them how we made the film using equipment borrowed from a commercial we were shooting at the time. I have the feeling the audience was made up of mostly the rebel generation of filmmakers.
