Studio 158 is a mini-doc series about local artists, produced for a budget of zero dollars (oh hey, I like the sound of that!). But how can this be?
Well, you see, I review cameras, and I need sample footage for those reviews. I could just film myself doing something dumb, but I’d rather tell someone else’s story and use the camera in an actual production setting.
But this project also serves a second, arguably more important purpose: to provide free videos to individuals who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford them (so no late-career Andy Warhols, please).
The featured artists are free to use their films as they see fit for the promotion of their work, and I provide social-media-friendly edits for easy sharing through the likes of Instagram Posts and Stories.
Want to participate? Artists are selected by word of mouth. With each new video, I try to showcase an artistic medium I haven’t yet covered, but there will naturally be some repetition as the series grows. If you or someone you know is interested in being featured, please contact me.
