"Doll with Hole" (a silent film) is edited to intentionally stop for a brief moment (1 or 2 seconds) from time to time to examine the image in the stopped frame, and then the movie resumes. Brice S. Bowman has a reason for this momentary pause in the film. It connected to his previous history as a Painter before becoming a Filmmaker. While a Painter Brice S. Bowman spent a lot of time in museums standing in front of paintings for periods of time closely examining paintings before him. He was extremely connected to viewing a static silent image and all of its related pictorial technical and conceptual elements. With this in mind as a background Brice S. Bowman stopped his film "Doll with Hole" on certain frames to view the image as it would be viewed as a two-dimensional work of art.

Bowman as a serious Painter "Doll with Hole" is an intriguing film displaying the artistic expressive thought process literally leaving a static media into the realm of moving media.

Bowman the "becoming ex-Painter" turning into an artist learning how to, and importantly what to express with images that are not static.
