Douglas Urbank

co-artistic director

Douglas Urbank is an experimental filmmaker with a background in  sculpture and drawing who began working with film in 2008. His films  are made primarily with 16 mm film stock using “direct film”  techniques, including combinations of original and found footage,  blank leader, hand coloring, adhesive overlays, and other interventions,   and are edited on a light table without use of a traditional editing  system. His work has been screened nationally at film festivals  and tours and locally at experimental music programs with live  sound accompaniment. Since 2001 he has hosted a radio program devoted to experimental, improvisational, and other unconventional music and sound art, and part  of WZBC’s long-running “No Commercial Potential” weeknight programming  from Boston College. The show aired previously for several years on  Tufts University’s WMFO.
