Featured Artist: D.M. Phoenix

D.M. Phoenix (DMP) is an accomplished artist in many regards (See his impressively designed portfolio site at phoenixium.com – drawings, CG, flash, etc…). Sometimes, when he finds the time, he makes a video mashup on youtube. But you can expect a lot more from your mashup when it’s being cut together by someone like DMP, who has dedicated so much of his life to making art, and who has an unmistakable passion for science fiction and for pleasing an audience.

As you might expect there are a number of “Star Trek vs Star Wars” mashes on the Internet, but what distinguishes the “DMP edition” is its persistent showmanship. DMP’s combinations of different video sources are indeed technically accomplished, but they go further than that: he chooses cutaways that give a precise emotional tone to the interactions between characters; he discreetly repeats certain clips to fine-tune the narrative pace and comic timing of his scenes; he always keeps an eye open for opportunities to twist the footage into a good joke.

“Star Wars Vs. Star Trek” is DMP’s most elaborate and popular remix so far, but I hope he can find the time to make some more. We stand to gain a lot whenever artists with solid multidisciplinary backgrounds decide to come play in our sandbox.
