Charlie Borowicz (C BRUV) // Filmmaker/Photographer/VideoArtist//

I have been producing serious work since 2002 beginning with Short Narrative and Documentary pieces when I co founded AnC Movies a three person Movie making ensemble . Along with them I shot and finished my first feature, Science Sex and the Ladies in 2014 a Visual Essay exploring the Science, History, and social constructs surrounding the Female Orgasm. AnC Movies is currently working towards their next feature

My Personal work has revolved around experimental form concerned with a fascination for the everyday and the monumental moments within. I find deep satisfaction exploring chance, the awkwardness of our shared reality, and the power of the simple. I enjoy the magic of the normal.

Close collaborations with the Dance community in Indianapolis have led me from Documentation to Video design and sparked an interest in exploring Dance on screen as an experience itself distinct from the stage or site specific  work. I find exploring both quality of movement, and the activation of space deeply satisfying.

I am a constant collaborator. I find working with others pushes me artistically, thematically and technically in the pursuit of rich original work.  Over the years I have had the pleasure of collaborating with many Artmakers and Arts organizations : AnC Movies, Lani Weissbach, Motus Dance, Indianapolis Movement Arts Collective, No Exit Performance, The Indy Convergence, Indy Pride, Arts Council of Indianapolis, Rebecca Pappas, Heidi Keller Phillips, Lauren Curry, Sphie,  Burd Phillips, Eisenhower Field Day, Itool, Cat Head Press, Gwendolyn Dot, Nathaniel Blume. For many of these individuals, community artmakers and organizers I was able to bring not only a creative partnership but a level of craft which would have certainly been out of their reach financially otherwise.

Works on Water   9.7.18 - 9.9.18 Governors Island, Manhattan, New York

I explored photographic and conceptual ideas tuned to the creation

of relics, mappings, and experiential placeholders in lieu of strict documentation. Working

alongside choreographic partner Rebecca Pappas we played with ways of accessing her interest in the relationship of her work to early modern dance.

Indy Convergence   July 2017 Indianapolis, Indiana

Indy Convergence brings together artists of many disciplines to create together. It’s focus is sharing process and craft without any pressure to ‘finish’. I presented my feature film script in 5 2 hour workshops gaining valuable insight. I also participated in a multitude of workshops and taught a 2 hour course on Film editing with Premiere Pro and Danvici Resolve.

TarpTarpTarp    Oct 2017 `Los Angeles, California

Over the course of a week. I took documentation from The performance of Parade 2017 and transformed it into a 3 channel installation which I projection mapped onto an out of use swimming pool. This culminated in a live show involving dance performance alongside and in participation with the video.
