For now, check out his teaser trailer and read our interview with the talented videographer below!
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
Currently based in Boston, MA.
WHAT’S YOUR INVOLVEMENT WITH THE BIG ANDREW?
Paul & Ian brought me on to visually capture The Big Andrew 2017 & put together a short doc on the foundation as a whole.
WHAT’S SOMETHING YOU CREATED RECENTLY THAT YOU’RE PROUD OF?
Though I haven't quite finished a cut I'm happy to share, I recently had the opportunity to travel to Lanzhou, China and work on a documentary discussing the importance of electricity in a remote village of northwest China. I'm pretty stoked to finished that up.
BIGGEST ARTISTIC INSPIRATION?
To find a project or focus that truly excites me in every way & forces me to move beyond what is comfortable.
HAVE ANY PETS?
No pets unfortunately :(
FAVORITE TRAVEL DESTINATION?
Fjords in Norway
HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR EGGS?
I'm easy, anything tasty. I guess if I had to choose, though, I'd probably go with fried.
Too hard. Let's chat & I'll give you my list.
WHERE CAN WE FIND YOUR WORK (WEBSITE/INSTAGRAM/ETC)?
I try to update my site (colinjosephbell.com) as much as possible, but my social media is the best spot to see what I'm up to. Instagram is the best spot for sure. All my handles are @colinjosephbell.
