a few years ago I made this piece but I always had an itching…. an itching for a black and white, grainy, 16mm, version…. well here it is. My punk version of my crazy video. Strap yourself in. Thanks Cinegrain for your awesome support for the past 3 years
After months of experimenting with themes, that involved diving into the wilderness of the mind, “Tightrope” came along. KOZM’s flurry emotional soundtrack allowed me to set them free into this piece. Kristelle Monterrosa provided the movement, the emotion, the rawness of a woman losing herself to unwinding madness. In post, we applied the “blood flow” effect to magnify her battle within her own self and her multiple personas.
Had some fun with Batwing on this crazy looking project.
One of my biggest influences has always been Max Ernst. His surreal work always made an impact on me. “Doomsday” was an homage to his nightmarish imagery who has haunted me beautifully since I was a child.
This video, also, marks the first chapter of my magical realist work. M.
This piece was shot on Pico Union’s The Graph Lab, Los Angeles CA.
Artists Jamie Johnson (miceofmillions.com) and Van Saro (vansaro.com) go to town in this anti war piece giving their viewers something to think about.
I really pushed the Canon 5D mark II to give me that edgy, street feel that their piece deserved.
