ART DIRECTOR REEL / 2016
This body of work consists of various films, promos, and a music video which were compiled over a 4 year period of time. I have come to realize that the relationships that we have, in our work space especially, are more important than the actual product we make. It is an honor to work with passionate, gifted people. Josh Garrel's "Morning Light" song inspired this edit. Projects featured in the REEL - Many Beautiful Things, Steps Over Swaziland, Moving On, Dog Days, Ileana's Smile, Torchbearer, Dispatch - "Bound By Love"

"Austin is truly One of the most talented Artists we've ever worked with."
" Working with Austin was one of the most rewarding creative experiences I've had as a filmmaker. He's served as the art director for three of my last films, and has brought incredible ideas, beauty and intentionality to every project we've worked on together. I can't recommend him highly enough."
- Laura Waters Hinson, Director and Owner, Image Bearer Pictures
"We wanted to communicate substance and soul, wisdom and wonder, and care-filled chaos. Not an easy task. Austin got out his paper, his palette and his tools and added heart."
- John Seigel Boettner CEO (Chief Enchantment Officer) Teen Press
"Working with Austin is an absolute joy… He is a divine lightning rod of creativity, patience, and humility!”
- Brad Corrigan (member of the band Dispatch, founder of Love Light + Melody)
