Shadows - A Love Story

My first film in oh so many months, it was made in part so that I didn't forget all my capture and editing skills.  Happily the smooth cams were as smooth as they could be (new computer probably helped some there) and editing came easy.

Filmed at Fantasy Faire before it opened and grayness became queen, it is a fitting tale for the environment.

See it at SLARTIST here.

SL13B Call to Artists


Want to do something big? Or a creation perhaps on a smaller scale?

SL13B is looking for participants for the infrastructure of the celebration. Both giant plots with a purpose and "art areas" are up for grabs so send in those proposals.

It is a director's job to have a vision -- see the big picture -- instruct his actors in making his ideas materialize. It is the cinematographer's job to keep us entranced. The editor needs the shots to merge and meld the visuals into a cohesive story, the camera man needs to spot the angles and catch the light.

As I was watching this film for possibly the third time, this shot caused me to -- well, pause the video. Much of the movie and intent is said in this brief bit of footage. Need, intent, battles, history -- overlayed against the array that could bring the answers.

Sometimes a picture IS worth a thousand words.
