BARDO of the FAMOUS PAINTER - film trailer
Play Video

(currently submitting to film festivals)

LA artist Daniel Kaufman has been creating celebrated fine art for over four decades, yet still lives as the quintessential "starving artist." His most famous works are encaustic paintings made from melting crayons.
Despite creating hundreds of amazing, highly celebrated works of art, Daniel struggles every day to achieve fame and retrieve the true value for his creations. 

The Bardo is the Tibetan term for the intermediate state or gap we experience between death and our next rebirth which Daniel struggles with daily.
I felt compelled to produce a documentary about  this interesting artist's efforts every day to create, market and sell his work made with talent, love and passion.
The question the film tries to answer: What DOES it take for a truly great artist to finally make it BIG?

"Echo Made In The Shade" shown at UK's SummerTyne Americana Festival

When the festival promoters contacted me about running my short film, I was humbled and thrilled. Classic Hot Rodding is indeed a slice of Americana,  and the video fits in nicely with others at the event.   

"Echo Tescier, a hot rod builder in LA is one of a dying breed – a true free spirit dedicated to the art of building and driving fast hot rods."

"BEHIND THE WHEELS" web series
(currently in production)

Classic and custom cars are cool! The people who build, restore, collect, own and drive them are a passionate and sometimes very interesting breed.

The new Behind the Wheels series of videos explores unique cars and the interesting people who love them. I find out how and why their prized cars  are so meaningful to them, how they became obsessed with their vehicles and and what it takes to build and care for some of their amazing rides.
