Participant: Robert Sagerman

One participant I have been very anxious to meet and am really looking forward to our first meetup is painter Robert Sagerman. Sagerman has truly found a new method of painting and I can't wait to see how he develops it over the next decade or so. It's one of the few types of painting where I can't decode just how he does it. And that makes me enjoy it even more. Learning about Robert, his history and how he sees the future is definitely worth the visit.

And with your help I can get there a bit faster. Please donate for the film. Over >>>>>

You can learn more about Robert's painting and his theories behind his work on his personal website @http://robertsagerman.com/   http://www.artnet.com/artists/robert-sagerman/

Clip from upcoming film "Untitled"

I went up to New Hampshire a few weeks ago and spent some wonderful time getting to know curator Carl Belz. Belz is the director emeritus of the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University. He is also a contributor for the Left Bank Art Blog. Here is a small clip of Carl speaking about how he came to love art. I do hope you enjoy it. As there is MUCH more to come.

In the following weeks I'll be travelling around the country to interview many more painters, curators, writers, critics, and gallerists about the world of the modern painter and how they all relate to it.

Please feel free to learn more on our Facebook page.

My 1st Documentary (Marc Ross)

This is my first documentary I made. I did it with my new Canon 5D MKII camera with a Sigma 50mm prime lens and a Zoom H4n audio recorder. Edited with Final Cut Express 4.0 on my MBP. I had a fabulous time learning from Marc about his life coming into painting up to now. I also had a wonderful experience (sometimes quite hair pulling) learning how to edit the film.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
