Melanie Gonzalez ART
Art photography, video production and post production company.
Creative director: Melanie Gonzalez.
Projects span from fine art photography and video production for art exhibitions and installations to production design for film, documentary interviews, digital media concepts for live music events and post production photo and video editing.
I have been working as an artist in the mediums of photography and filmmaking for a decade.
I produce and direct my own short narrative video and photo works.
With photography and filmmaking, I focus my lens on various cultures through architectural landscape and portraiture.
I scout for locations in natural landscapes and architectural landscapes so that my short films and
photographic compositions participate directly with the performers who express a narrative
of contemporized stories of lineage.
