Director Biography - Brian Siskind

My independent projects are immersed often in abandoned, forgotten places, and endangered historic properties. I see endless potential to use drones for artistic and commercial projects that expand perceptions - and for social good. Being a longtime music artist and visual artist, makes for an ideal marriage of the visual with the sonic.

I constantly wonder - what Mark Rothko would do with a flying camera? - or Franz Kline, Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Yves Klein, James Turrell, Georgia O'Keeffe, Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, Alfred Stieglitz, or Weegie? That consumes me as I explore with Those Drones.
