It might be a cliche, but only because it is true. A picture is worth more than words, and can conjour up richness from nothingness in only the seconds it takes to absorb it.
So when you know good people in the visual arts world, it makes sense to collaborate! Being in the fortunate position of knowing some fantastic film makers and visual artists, I had the opportunity this year to work with the very talented Shaun Garea. This is a man who single handedly runs a production company (Estrata), works with musicians on Mike Patton & Billy Goulds “Koolarrow Records” and produces films, documentaries, and, as it happens, comics!
And because words really ARE inadequite for describing the amazing job Shaun and his crew did on the video for “The Arsonist”, I shall stop typing and let you check out his work for yourself!!
“The Arsonist” was filmed by Shaun Garea – http://www.shaungarea.com – on location in Christchurch, New Zealand. Music by Jordan Reyne, actors, Keri Wheeler (the scientist) and Charles Grubb (as the adventurer). Dedicated to the people of Christchurch.
