Synopsis: I am a UTA film major currently enrolled in a staged environments class, so the work is geared towards precisely controlled self contained narratives within each still photograph – essentially everything that goes into film production minus moving images and sound. The theme for this body of work is a modern, sardonic re-appropriation of biblical versus regarding rape, incest, adultery, women as property, usury, murder/sacrifice, slavery, etc., all set in contemporary suburban and rural environments. I am more than willing to exchange work for work, so we can discuss shooting new head-shots for your efforts. Interested actors and crew can send their head-shots or resumes to the address below and we’ll discuss from there. The above format says 35mm but I am shooting large format sheet film (4×5 inch negative)
