Endearing, Enterprising, Enticing, 'Ent Houzenga!
28 November 2010 | by jimseng-1See all my reviews

The well-attended premier screening of "Brent Houzenga: Hybrid Pioneer" at the Des Moines Social Club earlier this month was an outstanding culmination of local artistic talent, marketing directive, and sheer ambition from the heart of Iowa. A success and a beginning.

As I have come to know Brent in a personal and professional capacity, this film certainly paints (and etches, scratches, frames, stencils) a poignant portrayal of an artist in process and "in progress"; someone living as an artist of many talents as well as a man about town with gumption toward greater self-expression. Each character interviewed as part of the documentary contributed to the multi-nodal Art-Music-Creative collective burgeoning in the heart of Central Iowa.

This film is highly-accessible and I look forward to further work from Des Moines-local producer/director Kristian Day :)
