Brief Candle


The sequel to “Painted” puts Andrew Wyeth’s ‘Christina’s World’ into motion, and explores how bio-electricity galvanizes into discovering muscular intelligence. Light field setup with 50 lamps, and extensive visual effects in post. Shot with 3 cameras once right after sunset, and again just before sunrise the next morning.
