killintrolls asked: Hey! I loved that video. I sadly don't live close, but I would love to see the whole video! I'm not expecting it to be free on YouTube, but so you think you might sell it? I would love to buy a CD or pay to see it online. Do you think you might make it possible?

I’ll be able to post more about how we plan on releasing it out into the webiverse/universe closer to the release date. But i’ll absolutely keep you guys informed, i’m so excited about it! 

Anonymous asked: Hey!! i really really like that trailer and want to see that film so badly now... but I live nowhere near you.. how can I see it? Dx will it be posted online anywhere?

Good question! I believe we will be selling DVD’s of the short film and behind the scenes directly after the release. It will eventually be available online, we just have to run it through the festival circuit first. SO basically it’ll be online after say a year or so? Nothing is set in stone yet but thats basically what our class has been discussing. 

My film class has been working super hard all year on this short film and its finally almost done!! Here is the trailer for “Come Darkly Near” which will be premiering May 3rd at the Byrd Theatre in Richmond, VA.  

I”M SO EXCITED ABOUT IT!! And I worked super hard on this trailer (with the help of some wonderful classmates) so feel free to tell me what you think.

parlefeu asked: Have you considered doing album artwork before? Your photography is stunning, pleasantly surreal, and delightfully conceptual. I like the little risks you take.

I’ve done album artwork! Its been a while but I really love it. (Hint: people please give me moneys and I’ll make you cool stuff for your music)

and thanks! I like what you see in my pictures. 

Oh yay! Perhaps we’ll be in touch in the future for just that, then. I’m in the midst of recording right now and might be interested depending on your rates, my budget, and whether or not our visions might intersect at this time. Keep at it; your work is great :)

Do you have any work I can listen to? If for anything else I love hearing and seeing what others are making! Regardless, message me whenever if you’re still feeling it, we can talk. I’m pretty loose with rates when it comes to fellow art makers, sometimes it is just fun to be part of something grand

Anonymous asked: Hi Marissa, I'm a massive fan of your work! I am a textiles student and currently doing a project on 'Overgrown' and was wondering if you could tell me how you did some of your pieces like 'Quiet', 'Two', 'One', 'Drifter' and 'Drifter II', any help you could give me would be absolutely amazing because I need as much as I can get, I'm quite new to editing and manipulation so your work is really inspirational!

Absolutely, hop off anon and shoot me a message! I’m all about sharing techniques but all of that would be a bit lengthy to explain on a post
