Resume of the piece:
PORTRAIT IN HALF-LIGHT
My approach to making films is an attempt to bring to light subconscious preoccupations that reveal themselves while filming in an improvised, stream of consciousness manner. Aspects of memory, dreams and recordings of the everyday are juxtaposed within densely layered, in-camera edited studies of figurative and abstract environments vast and small, all within a flowing formal and thematic experimental aesthetic that encourages unplanned-for results.
