Part 1 of my interview/documentary "Gone Fishin' - An interview w/ Russell Chatham'.
In this installment, Russell talks about his family and most notably his grandfather, a successful, Carmel based, landscape painter and largest influence, Gottardo Piazzoni. More on him at this site: bolinasmuseum.org/exhibition10048.html
In the midst of working for Russell building frames and other handy-man tasks, I'd realized no one had ever sat him down and asked him about his life, his art, his passion for fly-fishing and his up-bringing. I made it my job to do so. This was my first effort at making a documentary and w/ a budget of $0- I was most of the production team. The rest of the team were Rob Ralston (Primary camera), Kyle Bring ('B' camera) and on a momentary 'C' camera, Lenny 'America' Woodward.
You can watch the whole version here in it's parts, or purchase copies of the DVD by contacting me here. The DVD contains additional interview footage and Russell Chatham video I'd made for his 12 month lithograph suite on the Missouri river.
