Biography: Will Forrester (B.A, M.A.) is an art teacher in Denver, Colorado, and has been rigorously studying art for well over a decade. He has worked with a variety of media including painting, drawing, music, digital arts, and film/video. Forrester has worked in several genres, from traditional documentary to experimental animation where his niche seems to have been found. On most projects, Forrester draws or paints the animations, shoots and edits the footage, and composes the music for each one of his pieces, thus making each project a solo endeavor. When each project is complete, stills from the piece art printed and framed in order to create a photographic display which can be exhibited along side the video.
