Spot on portrayal of Brent and his impact on the Des Moines (& abroad) art & music scene!
14 November 2010 | by deadclownartSee all my reviews

Brent is a friend of mine, & I do make a couple of profanity-laced appearances in this fine documentary, so I'll be as brief & unbiased as possible. Kristian (& everybody else involved) created an accurate, funny, energetic & raw portrait of the multifaceted, kind, funny & generous person slash local character that is Brent Houzenga. Those who know Brent know exactly what I'm talking about. And if you don't know Brent, this documentary makes for a fine crash course in not only the WHAT he does, but the WHO he is. It's a film about Brent, of course, but it's also about the Des Moines art scene, & what an important role Brent played in both its infancy & its evolution. Setting aside his impressive mountain of visual & musical output, after watching Hybrid Pioneer I was left with the burning after image of the impact Des Moines has made on Brent, and the impact that Brent has made on Des Moines! Two paint-covered thumbs WAY up!
