Welcome to The Electric Meditation
All of my work has been very abstract. In film school I was asked by an English teacher who wanted a different way to have his students understand poetry. I was commissioned to film a poem from his curriculum, so I chose Emily Dickinson's 'I Heard A Fly' and proceeded to create an avant-garde 16mm film of the poem. The film was presented at the 1995 Symposium of Academic Excellence at Eastern Michigan University, with my mentor stating that the film could have been a Masters thesis at NYU, which I mention because that is a really cool thing for a Dean to say of a student publicly at a podium before the President of the University.
I left film after school, and returned in 2011, learning digital non-linear editing, and getting a photography degree. Now I'm beginning to speak a new language of film and audio, and I am proud to evolve this weird award winning journey called The Electric Meditation.
