JUSTINE LUCAS

ARTIST STATEMENT

A Life in the Arts...

Justine Lucas was raised by poets and painters in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, California. As a young child, she excelled in painting and won several art contests for her drawings and paintings. She attended an arts charter school for part of middle school, where she first found her love for sculpture. For high school, she auditioned for and attended San Francisco School of the Arts, where she focused on figurative studies in painting and in sculpture. After graduation, and a gap year in the circus, she went on to attain her BFA from San Francisco State University in Studio Art with a dual emphasis in Painting and Sculpture, and a minor in World Music & Dance. Her mediums of choice were oil paint, and wood and metal sculpture. Since graduating, Justine has continued creating and showing work in California. Her recent artwork focuses on the secret life of circus performers, inspired by her years traveling with both local and international circus art troupes, including Cavalia, Cirque Du Soleil, as well as Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey.

Cinematography

Justine's filmmaking process, from pre-production to post-production.
  1. Mood boards that express the unified look of each scene including location, costume, color scheme, lighting, and material textures.
  2. Film treatments that describe what the camera sees from beginning to end of a scene.
  3. Storyboards that illustrate the main frames; characters in frame, expression or action, camera movement, shot type (wide angle, medium shot, or close-up) and perspective (side-angle, straight-on, or follow-shot).
  4. Film stills from actual film shoot, portraying final product and the actualization of initial mood boards.
NOTE: The following slides are for a new film currently in production called "City Girl"
