SEAN  PETTIS

 

Sean has been active as an experimental filmmaker in California's Bay Area for over 15 years. He prides himself on imbuing his films with elements of philosophy and psychology that pertain to the characters and their predicaments.

Folklore and witchcraft have always been a leading inspiration in Sean's work and he has gone as far as to participate in secret rituals in search of new story ideas. In summarizing his methods, he has said "Simply put, I make films using witchcraft. By communing with plants and divining the fates of my characters, the tales I aim to tell should serve as a means for the viewer to depart their present surroundings."
