For most of April I was ensconced in a cut little cabin studio in a big private park in Connecticut. This park is the I-Park Artist Residency, which hosts 6 or 7 artists at a time, of all disciplines: composers, painters, environmental artists, installation artists, even animators!

I was happy to have the time and concentration to work on a short film project. This is a collaboration with a very talented composer out of Seattle – if you’ve seen my past short films you’ve probably heard his music! Jason Staczek brought me this idea a number of months ago, and it’s slowly been brewing and developing. It’s about the relationship between humanity and the sun. Below are some making of photos and shots from around the park:
