The Lichen Collector (new clip)

Last year, I collaborated with Fngibtm to make another mud movie. Fngibtm seemed to have a commercial interest in lichens which motivated him to wander around in the treacherous swamp to collect them. That provided a great segue for him to get stuck in some bottomless quickmud … and he did. The spot we selected … Continue reading »

The Crossing

On April 10, I ventured out for a deep mud adventure. I shot a lot of video, although it didn’t all come out as well as I wanted. A lot of it was overexposed, and my ground camera wasn’t aimed very well. However, the tide was super low and I was able to play in … Continue reading »
