My current project is:
Im not exactly sure what my dream project is yet. I love working with video and I will continue to find challenging creative projects to expand my knowledge and portfolio.
Laurels, awards and other accomplishments:
I started my business 3 years ago and have strived to make each film better than the one before it. In these past years I have won third place in the stockton music video festival. Best Cinematography in the north state by The Knot. Also this year I have been awarded best documentary at the Sundial Film Festival in Redding, CA.
Hi Tyler, Our films are both screening in the Global Issues category on April 24th. I just wanted to say hello. I live in northern Alaska (where my film, ONCE THERE WERE POLAR BEARS, was shot).
Your film about fresh, local food in California sounds important... wish I could be there for the screening (not to mention a bite to eat after the show...). Here on the arctic coast, "local" food translates (in the nutritional & cultural language of my neighbors, the Inupiat Eskimos) to delicious caribou meat, lots of fish, and bowhead whale blubber, which the local polar bears also love to eat. In fact, feeding on the remains of the fall Inupiat whale harvest helps these bears put on plenty of fat for the winter months... I find this balance of life, death, food, and seasons quite spectacular to witness, which is why I live here. It's the ultimate "organic" garden!
Anyway, my film is only a 6-min short (the beginning of a feature doc), so there's no trailer, but if you want to learn more, you can visit http://www.arthurcsmithiii.com. Best, and good luck with your film, Art Smith
