The Nature of Bronze is a documentary on the artist Jackson McLean. The story follows the making of his final Big Red Head, two days before the annual Studio Show. Each year collectors, close family, and friends are invited into the studio for demonstrations and an evening sit down feast. It’s a tradition that is still going on to this day (Oct. 2015). During my stay at the artist’s home (his studio was in back barn), we made three micro-shorts to illustrate what was captured each day. The series of shorts were released on the days leading up to the Oct. 2011 Studio Show.
Jack McLean passed on February 20th, 2017. This short was shared with family and friends in memory of Jack.
