ArtistFilmDocs are short profiles about artists and their work. The artists themselves discuss their background, inspiration, and philosophy in their own words over a visual backdrop of carefully-selected images of the artist's work and footage of their creative process. Each film is a result of close consultation with the artist, resulting in a unique film that fits their personality and individual needs.

With an art background himself, filmmaker Stephen Blauweiss knows how to create intimate, engaging films that capture the passion and style of each artist in a concise five-minute segment. Many of these have appeared regularly on a weekly TV show about the national arts scene, AHA! A House of Arts, on PBS station WMHT in Albany. We also produced over 60 of these short films for ArtScene, a monthly Chronogram column and video web series. The artist film profiles are also screened at galleries, posted on the artist and gallery websites, and shared widely on social media.



TESTIMONIALS
Your films are truly wonderful. I really enjoyed your work and will watch the pieces again and again when I have time to really look closely.
Shirley Botsford

The video is great...really, Stephen. You made a very cohesive story out of all you taped and the close up is a knock-out plus the images that you picked are perfect for the story. Bravo!!!!
Elisa Pritzker

Wow Stephen, you did an amazing job! You were able to get so much in, and I love how the words sink up with the images. I feel it is a VERY accurate representation of me and my work. Thrilled. Thanks!

Hey Stephen, thanks very much for this well put together piece. I really like how you wove together the paintings and drawings with what I was saying. Thank you very much. I feel honored. Well done Stephen. Thanks
