Stefan Sagmeister ’08

Directed & Edited by Hillman Curtis. Produced by Hillmancurtis

This is the second film I’ve shot with Stefan Sagmeister and one of my favorites. I shot it at his gallery show at the Deitch Gallery in SoHo. I didn’t have much of a plan and left a lot of space for improvisation. The interview shot is one I like very much. I like how it places Stefan in the middle of the frame and a little too far away to really see clearly. I also like how people keep walking in front of the camera. I actually had to instruct them to do so. I guess if anything I wanted to explore the nature of a show where the artist is often anonymous to his public.
