The Maestro Upstairs (DP)

A sprawling documentary about the late American expressionist painter, Frank Mason.  Shot on location in Italy, England, and the US.  We used 5 different Super 16 film stocks to suggest the painterly world of Mason, varying color saturation and color. Then we combined the film with digital video for much of the interview footage to separate his art from his words. Directed by Sonny Quinn.
