Experimental Film Artist: Douglas Urbank

Douglas Urbank is an artist and experimental filmmaker.  He is co-host of a radio program “The Pinwheels of Your Mind,” devoted to experimental, improvisational, and other unconventional music and sound art, on Boston College’s WZBC, and a member of the Fort Point Arts Community and Fort Point Theatre Channel.  He has a BFA from Carnegie-Mellon University with a focus on sculpture and drawing.  And is an identical twin.
Both Migration and Mother are made from hand altered 16 mm and super 8 mm film.  Sound for both is by composer and experimental saxophonist, Jorrit Dijkstra (http://www.jorritdijkstra.com/).  The Migration soundtrack was improvised and recorded live during a presentation of the film as part of a Church of the Advent Library Concert Series program, February 2011. Both Films are Official Selections of the Glovebox Short Film and Animation Festival.
