BSA Special Feature: “Circle of Abstract Ritual” by Jeff Frost
A little over a year ago on BSA Film Friday we asked you to contribute to the Kickstarter for this film and today we can report that it was worth it.
“This film took 300,000 photos, riots, wildfires, paintings in abandoned houses, two years and zero graphics to make. It changed my entire life,” says Jeff of this environmental cinematic stadium full of eye candy and awe.
“This film is art for the sake of art. It was made with much generosity, from the people who let me crash on their couches to the people who backed the Kickstarter to people who just wanted to pitch in: thank you. This would not have been possible without your help.
Every spare cent I make goes back into creating art.”
Play it full screen, and it may change your life as well.
