So some of my work is going to be incorporated into this cool new feature length film I’ve helping promote. See the shot there? The one above this caption? It’s mine! Part of a oh so cool time lapse. So I’m excited my work is part of a feature film now.
These guys are doing great work and are raising extra funds to help finance the film. You should check out their website and their Indiegogo crowd funding campaign.
Oh and for all you cool filmmaking types one of the rewards for donating is cheaper rates on cinema quality equipment like the RED cameras, beautiful lenses and all that stuff.
Background artist needed for traditionally animated independent shortfilm, Nail’d. Send portfolios/reels to firstname.lastname@example.org. Position will be a paid gig, lasting March through end of May.
Clearly the hardest thing for the working artist is to create his own conception and follow it, unafraid of the strictures it imposes, however rigid these may be. It is far easier to be eclectic, to follow the routine patterns which abound in our professional arsenal: less trouble for the director and simpler for the audience. But there is a danger here of becoming hopelessly entangled.
I see it as the clearest evidence of genius when an artist follows his conception, his idea, his principle, so unswervingly that he has this truth of his constantly in his control, never letting go of it even for the sake of his own enjoyment of his work.
There are few people of genius in the cinema; look at Bresson, Mizoguchi, Dovzhenko, Paradzhanov, Buñuel: not one of them could be confused with anyone else. An artist of that calibre follows one straight line, albeit at great cost; not without weaknesses or even, indeed, occasionally being far-fetched; but always in the name of the one idea, the one conception.
