ORGANIX (2015)
Running Time: 5 minutes, 48 seconds
Genre: Nature

Produced, Edited and Directed by ROD PATRICK RISBROOK.

ORGANIX is a short film I created about nature. I was inspired by another filmmaker who did a nature film using a DSLR camera, and so I decided it was something I wanted to do with my own DSLR cameras besides my love of shooting still photographic|Imagery. I started this nature film project on the side in July 2012 during which time I was on an annual summer retreat for same gender loving men of African descent. This time frame was in conjunction with having already started my first feature documentary film (back in July of 2011) to which I am still currently working on called "ADODI, 30 Years And Beyond: Claiming The Legacy, Continuing The Legend..." which is about an organization and lives of a brotherhood called ADODI and our retreats.

So anyway, Earth’s nature ecosystem has soooooooo much beauty to offer if we just slow down, open our eyes and surrender to the eXperience. In fact, that’s actually how I got into photography; I realized that by looking through the lens of a camera I was missing so much good stuff the Earth itself has to offer. So, I wanted to use photography to captures moments in life, and the great part is that I can look back and re-visit those images at any time and remember the eXperiences.

 “TWO”, which was my very first short film that I made in July of 2008 -- do you see the RECURRING THEME  of my creative project energies seemingly always starting in July of different years for some reason, LOL!  -- was an eXperimental photographic still imagery (non-motion) presentation film about a slice of life story that I had heard about involving the Vietnam War. “TWO” was my final exam project for my Visual Storytelling class that I took while I was studying cinematography at New York University (NYU) in the mid-2000s. So ORGANIX is my second  short film. ORGANIX was actually laying on the shelf for 3 years!!! I just never got around to color correcting and color grading the footage until now in September 2015. It was a labor of love, so I hope you like the visual outcome of those moments I spoke of.
