Bonus Episode 2 – Craig Baldwin and Other Cinema
It was my pleasure to interview, Craig Baldwin. Craig operates Other Cinema and Artists’ Television Access. He is a found footage collage filmmaker, activist, and film curator. Craig’s influence on contemporary filmmakers is immeasurable. I was excited to speak with him and glad that he was able to take time away from his many projects and businesses to be a guest on the podcast. Below is an excerpt from his Wikipedia page.
Craig Baldwin is an American experimental filmmaker. He uses found footage from the fringes of popular consciousness as well as images from the mass media to undermine and transform the traditional documentary, infusing it with the energy of high-speed montage and provocative commentary that targets subjects from intellectual property rights to rampant consumerism.
