THE ARTIST LIFE

role in EVANCHUCK's 'GOODIEmeetsHAPPY' - an absurd comedy
One of the many great things digital technology offers the creative filmaker is 'cheap'. It brings out the creative artist since one does NOT have to run around looking for money to start or complete a project. Shooting film always forced money concerns on the creative artist - so many became CFO's instead of filmmakers.
CFO's were forced to make long lists of financial needs and ways. So, whatever creative artist they had in their blood was eradicated slowly over time and they became show business producers instead. They would revel in the money instead of the art.
Helene Lacelle and Peter Evanchuck prefer the creative artist approach to filmaking so digital is their miracle. They make creative flipbooks, shorts and most recently Lacelle used iMOVIE on her iMAC 21.5 to create personal docs she entitled, "Petit Voyage avec Pierre".
"Peter and I make numerous road trips so, using my simple mini digital camera enables me to use footage not in a traditional movie way but more in a creative artist way." - Helene
As a result, Helene's jaunts with Peter become these odd, remarkable and very personal mini documentaries.
