Documentary completed

HD Vision Studios has completed the first of a 13-part documentary series titled, Artist in the Round. The series focuses on accomplished artists and the major obstacles they’ve overcome to reach the levels of achievement they’ve attained in their careers.

Artist in the Round is shot and posted in high-definition by director, Randall P. Dark, producer, Kristen Cox and editor Jayme Wing . The footage was captured using a Sony HDC-700A camcorder and posted at HD Vision Studios facility in Studio City, Calif., using a Snell & Wilcox Switcher, Sony BVE-9100 editing system and a Graham Patton 8000 Audio Mixer.

The first documentary, Artist in the Round: Shayne Dark introduces viewers to the Canadian sculptor, who daily triumphs over dyslexia. Raised in a time where public schools didn’t even know the word dyslexic, Shayne was never diagnosed and therefore, was simply regarded as a "slow learner." Consequently, as an adult, Shayne reads and writes at a 2nd grade level. The documentary explores Shayne’s battle to overcome this life long learning disability, becoming a contemporary artist with international recognition.
