Dominic Duck-Garnham

Statement

After a successful art foundation at Central St. Martins, Dominic decided that the combination of film + Bristol would allow him to develop both creatively and culturally. Not wanting to be constrained by the medium, he explores projects as diverse as art installations, underground music events, food styling, life drawing, all of which have fed back into his film and photography work.

At ease with technical and design challenges, he offers a wide portfolio of skills, which enables him to work at many levels either alone or as part of a team. With an eye for the image and a desire to innovate, his work explores the boundaries of film crafts, with confidence and competence often with surprising results.

Set design, animation, stills photography, direction, cinematography, editing, styling, digital and analog processes, graphic design, prop making and lighting, are all part of Dominic's skill-set.
