Director Biography - Dominique Montesano

As a director I’m pretty versatile. It’s only natural as I am a multi medium artist in my everyday life. I perceive myself to be someone with an aching need and desire to create. I think about future projects constantly and can’t sleep without scheming up another. When I am without a project, I am without purpose. I have been like this ever since I was a child. I challenge myself everyday, through news mediums, concepts, and mostly i’m inspired by my own limitations. I’ve been working with digital cameras since I was kid. Although, I go backwards with technology advancement in my career. Working predominately in analog film, I capture motions frame by frame. A lot has to go down in order for me to accomplish this, the sun and light being my biggest obstacles. Yet I love how uneasy it is to shoot on film in this industry. I don’t shoot film to make money, I do it to keep it alive. That’s something about me, I love a challenge.

Director Statement

Bells came to me with this idea of capturing love stories from all sorts of people in the city I love, Montreal. I understood the vision immediately. We talked to people about love. Some we knew & some were spontaneously approached, after we built the courage to talk to em’ of course. Shooting complete strangers on super 8 isn't as easy as it seems
