“Easily the most out-there film… densely constructed, fascinatingly mysterious”
Scott Macaulay, Filmmaker Magazine
“something wholly original and true to its own design”

A still from Kuichisan
I am so excited to announce my new project, This Working Man.
Starting July 1st, I will be taking a cross-country road trip to make a series of short films about men at work. The project is about practiced motion, kinetic movement, bodies, forms, masculinity, and physicality. Each portrait focuses on one man at work, idealizing the grace of practice and the exuberance of a job well done.
Here’s where you come in. I’m looking to you to help me find some working men that are camera ready.
There are some criteria that must be followed, but basically I’m open to recommendations! Please help by submitting suggestions via this form I created specifically for you.
I can hardly wait to get on the road!
We’ve got another one for you!!
