VCS alumnus Jonathas Nazareth recently sent out an announcement of his new website, which features portfolios of his work in both video and fine art. In a brief bio, Jon provides the following information about himself:
From Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but have spent most of my life in NY.
I am a painter and video artist. If I am not working on a commercial shoot or edit, I am in my studio painting and drawing.
I am profoundly inspired by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Mary Frank, Henri Matisse, William Kentridge, among many others.
Here are a few selections from the site, along with excerpts from Jon’s comments.
This is my reel with some of my favorite projects from the previous years. These were projects I worked on in different capacities: producer, editor, assistant editor, and After Effects. The song is an oldie but a goodie by Holy Ghost.
This is a sample animation I’ve been working on with artist Mary Frank. More to come. These are 3 different still images that I animated in after effects.
There’s a lot more to see at Jon’s site, so be sure to check it out.
