The Artist behind our Art Direction
I can say that I was truly blessed with coming into contact with so many talent individuals for this project. Some right out of school, others with 20-30 years behind them in the business. The level of experience in the long run did not matter. What mattered most was each persons passion and dedication to their craft. That is truly the special sauce when it comes to creating visual stories....experience can help the process go fast, per se, but not necessarily better. Only true dedication and love for craft is what counts and I believe "Waiting for You" ( i am bias) shows this.
I fell in love with my Art Director, Lindsey Eastburg, first through her art. When I was in search for a set designer I really wanted someone who had an understanding of creating a thoughtful and subliminal compositions. I knew that I wanted the short to feel as though moments could be frozen in time as portraits of the characters living in these moments that where not necessarily linear. When I saw Lindsey's paintings and their soulfulness I knew she was the one for this project. My icing on the cake was that she was as giving as a person as she is as a designer.
