About 6 months ago, our friends at Visual Supply Co. asked us if there was anything we'd like to create that we hadn't had the chance to make yet - a difficult question, but one that got our minds spinning. This project would be devoid of outside art direction and without commercial intent. After knocking around a few ideas, we finally landed on a concept.
We are extremely honored to be recipients of Visual Supply Co's Artist Initiative grant and will be using the funds to make a short film. We have the unique opportunity here at IC to work with people from all walks of life and in all areas of art - one of our favorite aspects of the job. As each year goes by, I am reminded that our career is less about art and more about people.
Our as-of-yet untitled film will be in collaboration with a talented group of artists and friends and will thoughtfully document the creative process across all mediums of art: Design, Illustration, Animation, Photography, Sign Making, Product Design, Tattooing and Architecture. We will be asking some big questions and documenting the unique connection we all have as people making a living in the arts.
We begin filming in the early spring and will be debuting the final piece in various cities (and online) in late 2015. Please follow our VSCO Grid, where we'll be documenting the entire process.
A huge thanks to Greg Lutze, Jen Schmitz and the rest of the folks at VSCO for bringing this to life!
