  • Charles Chadwick has been an experimental filmmaker and for over ten years, and currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area, US. He received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees in film from the San Francisco Art Institute. His film work has utilized many different practices, from found footage, to direct to film animation, stop motion, optical printing, and hand processing. He also has worked in video: in high end HD, and in low end SD formats: on spy cameras, toy cameras, using experimental video degradation techniques, etc. His work often are explorations of historically forgotten sites: decommissioned military bases, ghost towns, prisons, warehouses, etc. He also works in other media, such as installation, photography, collage, printmaking, and sound. He participates in composing many of his own film soundtracks. With each passing year, he continues to find new subjects and directions for his work. His films have played at such venues as The Hummadruz Global Sounds Film Festival (which toured Japan), The International Experimental Cinema Exposition, Craig Baldwin's Other Cinema, the 11th Festival des Cinema Differents in Paris, France, as well as at others both national and international.
