About this project
"The Deal" was a compilation of small videos made by Chris Wells and myself Mike Rusczyk with assistance from Ed Van Slambrouck. We were asked to show some recent videos at a small art show on a Santa Rosa farm, the videos were to be projected on the side of a large barn after sundown.
Chris likes to use everyday life as his subject matter particularly situations involving his family. Where as I mostly get hung up on the process of editing and the fitting of images to sound, in ways I find interesting. We thought that this little show was a good opportunity to take stock of what we had and a good reason to compile the above videos.
We approached compiling our videos in the manor of a conversation. I would edit something then pass the project to Chris and would have at it. We edited the project in this way the day prior to the show and were very happy with the results.
