About B.

BIO:
B. currently lives in San Francisco, CA. His focus is on the horror, science-fiction, and action genres, and he artistically dabbles in all things taboo.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:
Studying all aspects of film production under experienced professionals has prepared me as an artist to break new ground in the field of visual storytelling. Learning the rules first in order to break them has influenced me to turn a chapter in cinema, gameplay, and present work that reflects the wants of an intelligent audience. Limitations and censorship inspire me to rebel against an industry of prequels, sequels, spin-offs, remakes, and adaptations. I want to help push forth a movement of original work in virtual-reality cinematic gameplay as we merge into a home-entertainment takeover, and wish to evolve the cinematic experience while joining a necessary modern nouvelle vague towards original work, artistic profit, and freedom of expression.
