BIOGRAPHY:   Made first film in 2002 after acting.

Passion for artistry/possibilities of cinema.

Created over 20 films.

Experimenting/playing/risktaking.

Pleasure from the idea/the filming/the editing.

Current work involves stuffed toy animals.

Not sure of next direction or what kind of filmmaker I am!

 


CRITICAL OVERVIEW:   Why make films? Many reasons. Everybody films. Images everywhere.

New platforms.old ideas.can there be a new energy from someone/somewhere.

Many ways/reasons to paint a picture.

Follow/copy/earn a living/push/tear down/originate

 

 
 
Kim Miles at work

"The creative process necessitates giving up normal logic.

Have to be in a trial and error state where unlikely connections can be made.

Creativity occurs when things that don’t seem to go together make something new when joined.

The illogical conclusion……that’s what we want …….surprising /unexpected /stimulating."
