A collaborative artistic endeavor combining Earth, Sea and Sky in a series of dramatic photographic artworks
About the Project
“Between Worlds” is a documentary film that follows the four month long collaboration between international award-winning photographer Jason Henthorne, known for his black-and -white, long-exposure landscape photography and Andres Amador, self-proclaimed ‘Earthscape Artist,' who creates works of art on beaches measuring up to 100,000 square feet large during low tides. For the film, documentary filmmaker, Brad Kremer of Cross Media International, went on location to the rugged and scenic beaches of Northern California to capture the process of two creators of very different styles and personalities blending their art forms.
Says Kremer “When I first heard about the Between Worlds project I thought it was an amazing opportunity to create something new with these two incredibly talented individuals. It is rare these days to find something that is truly original and I think that’s what we have here with this first of its kind collaboration”
The original goal of the collaboration was to produce new creative works for display. The project expanded with the inclusion of Kremer to a feature length film as well as a book that shows the behind-the-scenes experience. The film follows the process of scouting sites, preparation, executing the artwork, and photographing the result within the landscape as well as revealing aspects of the lives of both creators, concluding with the final gallery unveiling of the artworks produced.

About the Artists
Balancing between minimalism and abstraction, Henthorne captures the intersection of ocean and earth with his ethereal black and white fotographic images. Water, clouds and shorelines from around the globe are key elements comprising his large format, limited-edition prints. Henthorne strives to create an experience that lures the viewer deeply into his images, over and over, for further contemplation.
Andres Amador is a San Francisco-based "Earthscape Artist" who uses natural materials in wild settings to create enormous works of art. Achievable only during low tides, his artworks can span up to 100,000 square feet. They do not last long however- within minutes of finishing a creation, and often while still in progress, the returning tide begins resetting the canvas. Currently, Amador is developing a project in collaboration with indigenous artists to highlight with his large scale techniques their cultural art forms that express universally unifying messages.
Nike describes Brad Kremer as a "legendary filmmaker." Mike Nusenow, Senior VP of Global Marketing for Burton Snowboards, says of him that - “Brad is, without a doubt, one of the most highly regarded and influential snowboard movie filmers/directors in the industry.” Brad has spent the past twenty years traveling the world searching for the biggest adventures and best locations for his films. Brad has won over 100 industry awards under his direction, including the 2013 National Gold ADDY award for his short film for Nike set in Montafon, Austria and an Emmy in 2014.

Risks and challenges
There is complete confidence that the film will be completed. Principal filming is finished and Kremer has years of experience working on projects such as this. However, post-production is an art and not bound to a schedule, which means that delays are possible. That said, we have festival submission deadlines hovering over our heads which add extra incentive for us to meet our goals.
Regarding the book, the risks are that printing and delivery might take longer than anticipated. Henthorne has previously self-published a collection and is guiding the printing effort. The book will be printed and shipped as soon as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
