Jim Helton’S “Love Kills Demons”

As you know from my support of the Sparrow Songs project, I’m interested in time-based online filmmaking. Filmmaker (and Blue Valentine editor) Jim Helton has just completed his own one-a-month project, Love Kills Demons.

From the website:

Over the span of one year filmmaker Jim Helton documented New York-based artist Chris Rubino while he searched for a new direction in his work. In the process we see screenprinting, drawing, painting, wandering as well as a peak inside the workings of a studio and an artist’s process. The final 12 part film that is Love Kills Demons takes a look behind the proverbial curtain exposing some of the mystery of creation supported by the otherworldly sounds of Big Blood.

Part one is below. See the complete series at the link.

Blue Valentine Editor Jim Helton Checks Into The Ace Hotel

While going back through old emails I came across one from filmmaker Jim Helton, who made this cool video detailing artist Chris Rubio's process making four paintings for New York's Ace hotel. As Helton edited Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine, one of Sundance's most hotly anticipated films, it seems like a good idea to post this for all of you to check out.
