The short films of Duane Michals.

by Tim Soter


I’ve been extremely fortunate to work with Duane Michals on a series of short films this year, as of this writing eight strong and growing.  This is the first time Duane has collaborated and it’s wonderful to be able to help bring some really unique ideas to life.  On the last piece, shot almost entirely in my apartment I was the Director of Photography.

Now, if you know me you know what a huge fan I am and it was a funny seeing Duane on my sofa reading my photo books with my cat Rocco circling his legs.  He’s a tremendously generous artist and person and I’m glad that I’ve created my own alternative grad school by learning from him.  Plus I saved $66,000 in student loans.

I’ll let you know as soon as he plans to screen them.
