Looking into Light was created for my Handmade Films Class with Luther Price. By far my favorite class of the semester. It was an on again, off again process of experimentation with new media. Very liberating to work with my hands for a change from all the computer generated stuff. 16mm and super 8 film became a kind of addiction more so than a hobby. It possesses a magic that doesn't quite exist with digital. Also, attending that class was akin to visiting an uncle on the weekends. It was such a privilege to have Luther as a teacher. Not only was he one of the most passionate individuals I have ever met, he would also bring in baked goods to class every week. I took a lot out of that class and will expect to keep working with film as a way to escape getting lost in the LED void of ones and zeros.

Purpose Driven Animation

This is my PSA for Animation IV with Steve Gentile. This thirty second clip was made with the intention of having commercial potential. However, Instead of trying create a mock advertisement or bringing public awareness to a topical issue, I decided to adapt an ancient buddhist proverb. Bending the assignment a bit, gave me the perfect opportunity to illustrate this short story that I had in mind for a couple years prior. It stands as a philosophical antidote for instant zen (as the title indicates, there is a collection of these, one of the most popular being "the sound of one hand clapping.") This took months to produce which became exhausting. The point being to make as clear as possible a message for a general audience to understand. It was a challenge but from the start I had a sense of where I was going. It also helped that during production I was reading David Mamet's On Directing Film, which was largely influential in his approach to making a film "readable" by telling a story through shots.

My final for Intro to Film and Video with Soon Mi Yoo. I got really interested in cinematography during the time I made this. The work of Raoul Coutard, Christopher Doyle, Vittorio Storaro and photographer William Eggleston were heavily influential and a great discovery. Much appreciation to Soon Mi for exposing me to such great artists.
