I have written a bunch of screenplays. Full length and shorts. Most of the them sucked. A couple won awards. None have been produced.
Creating my art is a lot like good story telling. There are three acts. The setup, the conflict, and the resolution.
Act 1. During the setup, I am working to establish a relationship with my art, and what world it will live in. I am trying to establish the character and the meaning of the piece. During this time I will sketch, paint, create stencils, and prepare the media. The catalyst is my lighter.
Act 2. During the conflict, I am building action and overcoming obstacles. Here is where I lay the fuse and paint with gunpowder. There are physical limitations of how the blast is designed and can be controlled. I blow my work up outdoors and there are environmental conflicts of wind, humidity, temperature, and rain (or snow).
Act 3. The final act. I light the fuse and the piece explodes.
We have a brilliant climax!
Then I resolve all the final issues by brushing, scraping, vacuuming. Perhaps additional paint is needed. Sometimes, I explode the art again. In the final scene, we see how the character (the art) I developed in the opening scene has changed.
How it has transformed. How the art has resolved itself and how beautiful it is.
I hope you like my stories. Sometimes the characters are cool. The climax is always a blast! The resolutions last a lifetime.
