Reflection on pattern and abstraction of the subconscious

Good Intentions Film


The Independent Filmmakers Coalition of Kansas City created a very fun challenge, Every Picture Tells a Story, in which local artists submitted info and local filmmakers selected and created a film related to the artist’s work. I was so glad that filmmaker, Julia O’Donnell, resonated with my Good Intentions series and selected me.

The collaborative process was unique to each match up. For the film that Julia produced, I provided my process videos and photos plus process notes about the intent of the Good Intentions series. Julia edited and created a narrative for the film. Dang, if she didn’t communicate the intent so very well. The audience agreed. At the public screening of the films, Good Intentions won the 2nd Place Audience Vote award.
