Artman Gallery Photographer Featured in Film
Los Angeles artist Brooke Shaden, exhibited in Laguna Beach’s JoAnne Artman Gallery, was selected as one of eight photographers in film director Ron Howard’s new production “Project Imagin8ion.”
Shaden’s winning photograph, “Running from Wind,” was chosen out of 100,000 submitted photographs and was personally selected by Howard, according to Artman, who is currently showing some of the photographer’s work.
Daughter Bryce Dallas Howard and Dan Charbeneau will be writing and producing a short film based around the selected eight photographs. “Running from Wind,” chosen in the category of time, depicts two girls running through the woods away from the early morning fog.
Howard said he was drawn to the work because of its cinematic effect, suggestion of another era and air of mystery while encapsulating a human element.
