Director Biography - Bill Page

Based in Brooklyn, NY, Bill Page has been making documentaries about painters for five decades.Bill Page has been producing films on accomplished artists for over three decades, many with noted international acclaim.

As a painter myself, I saw firsthand how important it was having films on artists and how filmic language brings an elevation to artists speaking about their art.

My interest are primarily 'abstract painters' whose work has aesthetic essentials of Abstraction Abstraction, a major American art period of the 1940's.

Filmmkaers that have influenced my films are Sergi Eisenstein, Vsevolos Pudovkin, Dziga Vertov, Czech-American Alexander Hammid and the theorist Lev Kuleshov.

Director Statement

My also being a studio artist (painter) provides me with an 'edge' going into artists's studios, having candid interviews with artists and interpreting their art work into a filmic experience. More than a painting on the wall, films give viewers a wider access to the artist and artwork. My films are dialogue driven, artists speaking in their own words giving viewers a front-row seat to this experience.
These films have the artists working of the art, some following a work from the initial markings to the finished piece on a Museum wall. From these films, viewers now have a greater understanding - beyond the exhibition walls.
