I absolutely adore filmmaking. As an artist, it really gives me a chance to stretch and explore in new and interesting ways. Not only that, but it is an outlet for flexing my multi-media abilities (writing, set design and decoration, prop-making, costume, etc) so that every inch of the film has some of my art.
This was my very first art film, created in 2012. I had a budget of $500 which covered everything from gear rental, to props, to costume, to catering. Needless to say, it was a tight parameter to work within (my specialty). I had been really taken aback by the way society seemed to value attitudes and items which were "syntheTIC", "plasTIC", and "cosmeTIC"- hence the name. This is a menage of performance art pieces which call attention to the aforementioned "-TIC" words. The music was created by a very talented digital composer known as GRASS MIRROR to heighten the "-TIC" experience. Enjoy
