Cinematographer and co-writer for Crestone, a hybrid-documentary feature film directed by Marnie Ellen Hertzler. Produced by MEMORY. Distributed by UTOPIA. Original Score by ANIMAL COLLECTIVE.
Synopsis: In a world that undulates between fact and fiction, digital and physical, a group of SoundCloud rappers lives a solitary, post-societal existence in the desert town of Crestone, Colorado. Once a religious and spiritual mecca for many, Crestone’s endless sand dunes, waterfalls, and dark caves act as a backdrop for images of tattooed bodies, cosplay wardrobes, and clouds of weed smoke. "Crestone" explores the often hidden aspects of collaboration and friendship as well as the human desire to persist against all odds. What does music sound like if there is no one left to repost and share it?
