The Artists Forum Festival of the Moving Image awarded Ross Morin ’05 Best Music Video for his short film “In a Landscape, Dreaming.” Morin’s film was also nominated for Best Cinematography.
“Shot in five meticulous panning shots throughout the mountains, the film choreographs the moving landscape in an exploration of Zen Buddhist concepts of peace and terror in the infinite,” said Morin, associate professor of film studies and chair of the department at Conn.
“The film is equal parts experimental, documentary, landscape, dance and music film as it contemplates questions about the relationships between art and artist, human and nature, conservation and destruction. The film features world renowned pianist, Pedja Muzijevic, performing the work of John Cage. The film was shot at the Tippet Rise Art Center in Fishtail, Montana.”
Charlie Losiewicz ’19, Maggie Newell ’19 and Christian Vazquez ’19 served as cinematographers and editors on the film, which has won numerous awards and has been selected by multiple film festivals.
The Artists Forum Festival of the Moving Image was a three day event held in October, featuring the works of independent filmmakers originating from nine countries: Afghanistan, Argentina, Dominican Republic, France, India, Iran, Portugal, Spain and the United States. The festival requires that films present an innovative vision and unique perspectives in 30 minutes or less.
