Hello, I’m Jeremy Blanton. I first became interested in media at a young age. My father worked for a university as a media producer. As a child, I enjoyed watching him work as he created videos for the university to use in their curriculum. As I grew older, I started to develop an interest in photography and film-making. I would borrow his camcorder to record was around me: pets, flowers, things, our house, pretty much anything that caught my eye. I sketched out scenes from movies I had seen, such as Time Bandits and Star Wars. As a teenager, I developed an interest in cinema with directors Stanley Kubrick, Robert Rodriguez and Richard Linklater being some of my favorites. An interest in music developed and I spent many hours rehearsing with several bands. Music is still a big part of my life but I now spend much more time dedicating myself to the cinematic arts. Through the power of sounds and images we can influence people towards so many emotions. I feel more like a magician than a filmmaker sometimes. I hope you will allow me to introduce you to my world.
