Director: John Dawson
Film: “Soup Mix” is an experimental film made by Colorado artist and filmmaker John Dawson in 2023. This short film is 100% hand made and is all done by a one man crew. Drawing, painting and scratching directly onto 16mm and Super 8 film is how this production was done.
My films are all about motion and having fun! I hope people are entertained and energized by all of my films. You can think of it like a ride at the amusement park or view it the same way you might view fireworks or abstract painting. Norman McLaren, Len Ley and Steve Woloshen were all great influences and inspiration for this work.
Bio: John Dawson lives just outside of Boulder, Colorado and is the son of Colorado watercolor artist Milly Dawson. His fine artworks have been shown and sold in galleries in Colorado and online as well. He worked on and off for a small commercial animation studio in Denver in the late 70’s and early 80’s.
