Flow Go

“Flow Go” is an experimental film made by Colorado artist and filmmaker John Dawson in 2023. This short film is 100% hand made by drawing, painting and scratching directly onto 16mm film stock. I am taking an old school technique and trying to do something modern and current with it.
My films are all about the motion and having fun! I hope people are entertained and energized by all of my films. You can think of it like a ride at the amusement park or view it the same way you might view fireworks or abstract painting. Norman McLaren, Len Ley and Steve Woloshen were all great influences and inspiration for this work.
