Artist DAVID MILKEN is struggling to find beauty in the most unexpected of places; capturing portraits of average Americans at their most exhausted, their most frustrated, their most honest: David takes the I.D. photos at the Department of Motor Vehicles, and he takes his job very, very seriously. Against the odds of the vast government bureaucracy and the long lines of impatient drivers-to-be, David tries to make each snapshot a masterpiece. Today he has to take perhaps the most important picture of his career, that of his boss, BRIANCA VINCENT, and it isn't going to be pretty. Or is it? Written by Anonymous

When filming the scene where Brianca Vincent (Jennifer Echols) discoverers that the governor was not calling, she stormed down the hall and pushes aside DVM Employee (Cruz Peralez). The DMV Employee threw up lots of papers and dramatically slammed his hands down on a file cabinet - in an attempt to create a loud bang. Right after, Echols returned fearing she hurt him and kept asking if he was okay. He was fine. See more »

Why isn't this on TV yet!!!???!!!
4 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Artistic License at the New York Television Festival and I must say.. of all submitted, this was by far.. Top Notch!

I love the character development! I love the banter between David Milken (played by David Lago) and his boss Brianica Vincent!

I can't wait to get to know these characters even more! This short could easily develop into a series. I was left wanting to know more about several of the characters.

Hats off to the Director and production team. The quality shows! David Lagos' performance was great!

It conquered NY TV Festival.. Next stop France maybe??? Artistic License is a 10 in my book!!!!!
