what if Vincent van Gogh was born today? painT tells the story of Vinny, a struggling artist and quintessential "art underdog" who sees the world as a living, breathing painting. Set against the backdrop of the New York & L.A. art scene, painT is an American update on the tragic life of van Gogh, seen through the eyes of his modern day counterpart and spiritual heir, examining the fine line between love, madness, and paint.

photographer Ingrid Mellor paints painT.

ingrid is a mystery. her photos are dreamlike shafts of light, crunching leaves, pure dark, and lush rich beauty. her models and locations are just attractive to the eye and i am lucky to say that she said yes to shooting me and helping bringing some of the dreams i have written down on paper in the screenplay, painT, to life. She shot over 9 setups over the course of a 12 hour day and night in Bushwick, Brooklyn before i came out to LA. the rest is history as she has painted the story's fine moments with her camera, the night ending in a full-on photo realistic version of the famous painting by Vincent van Gogh, skull with burning cigarette. here is a link to her work, some of the painT series, that will premiere at the Standard, Hollywood at 8300 Sunset Blvd. for the painT exhibition. check out some of the behind the scenes polaroids as well. she is on point, and i can live in my dreams longer because of her. thank you alana for styling a modern day vinny, thank you ingrid for magic.
