Hello, I am Paolo A. Santos pa3sfoto.com
I am here to learn from the many outstanding video artists here on Vimeo and hopefully help bring inspiration to others through my work.
I started my creative path as a classically trained painter then quickly moved on to digital art and art directing for music videos. After a few years, I switched careers and focused on composing music for ballet & contemporary dance companies/projects in North & South America and Europe. My work with dance companies and choreographers lead to video installations and then to photography. Now I am back focusing on video and photography as my primary vocation. I worked with companies such as Celine Dion Angelil Productions for their artist Veronic Dicare and Les Capitole du Quebec for their touring production of "The Man in Black" a homage to the legendary music of Johnny Cash, and currently for the Elvis Experience show in co-production with the Elvis Enterprise.
From 2006-2008 I worked with the United Nations' official coral reef monitoring and protection program called Reef Check Foundation. With many other artistic collaborators, my wife and I conceptualized and produced several events utilizing dance, music and video installations to further help create ocean and coral reef awareness to the mainstream populace.
My wife and I continue to produce video work and we are once again conceptualizing new independent projects that will spread additional consciousness for nature and wildlife, and the impact of human and industrial activities through artistic videos and films.
