Joe Mangrum


A non-narrative and up-close look at NYC sand artist Joe Mangrum and his creative process on the streets of NYC.

Additional Information

I realized early on that Joe's work and his process would mean something different to everyone. So, as director, I felt my job was simply to turn on the camera and "get out of the way." As editor, my goal was to recreate, in an immersive visual way, what it's like to watch Joe work.
