"Hurry please. The world is coming to an end and I have a lot to do."
Today I started work with legendary painter/artist Gottfried Helnwein. Thanks to Cyril, his son, we met some time ago and are now collaborating. Today:
Lighting, camera tests, juggling.
I am too exhausted to reveal the details of our work but it is multi-media-prop chaos that I know will please many and enrage more. I am honored to work with him...and he is having a gallery exhibit this Thursday in LA that I will be attending.
As I promised, here are a couple of behind-the-scenes shots taken by Matt N., my art assistant. These are not representative of Helnwein’s work as he is primarily a painter. (AMAZING PAINTER).
