Dennis Olsen in his home studio
Our friend artist Gary Sweeney invited us to work on a documentary following the work of printmaker Dennis Olsen. Gary did an on-camera interview with Dennis in his beautiful home studio and also did a walk through of his printmaking process. Dennis’ process is so technical and renders some incredible fictive portraits.

Our favorite scenes came from musical performances by Dennis on various instruments. We absolutely love using music performed by the artist in our films, having done so with recently in both Vincent Valdez and Justin Boyd’s documentaries.
It was such a joy to have Dennis show us his many instruments
