It could be said I am a longtime filmmaker and artist beginning with the underground film scene of NYC in the early 1960s. True, though that awareness is only now becoming somewhat apparent to me. My first medium of preference was film, which continued with my move to Vermont in 1969. The work I produced could be described as feature length experimental narrative. As video and computers began to come into prominence, and as my films became more expensive to produce, I began to lean in that new dgital direction. By 1993 I was spending most of my time in the editing room looking at a non-linear editing system on my computer. The change of medium from film to video and the computer affected my work. It was shorter and reflected many more avenues of experimentation than were available with film. Today, in the 21st Century, I'm living in Maine. I work with a small, light, portable DSLR. and more dense computer editing program than even existed in 1990. What remains the same, as I now realize after all these years, is the impetus to work.
