Episode 40. Interview with Dylan McLaughlin

In this episode we hear how Artist Dylan McLaughlin finds a sustainable creative outlet through filmmaking. Dylan looks back over the past couple of years at the friendships he has carved out while creating visual portraits of Artists for various museums and galleries. He talks on collaboration and of his personal creative experience with the medium of film. How being Indigenous allows him to relate to certain projects in a fluid way without it becoming a main focus in his work. Dylan breaks down how he uses impulse as the main thread for connecting into his process, capturing the truth of a moment while allowing his subjects to live in abstraction. We hear how Dylan's work and aesthetics are informed by everything from the gear he uses to his emotional grounding while editing a piece.
