“Spike Jonze will always be a favourite filmmaker of mine for his inventiveness, as well as more recently Denis Villeneuve for his ability to create tense, gripping, captivating films”
Adrian Vieni, visual storyteller
“Kate Tempest, The Book Of Traps And Lessons. For when you're feeling really disengaged, frustrated and alone. She manages to articulate every emotion you've ever felt about being a human in the current political climate, then make you angry and then hopeful. It's a journey and one I've cried to a couple of times.”
“Rothko, Malevich, Basquiat, Matisse... Wait! they are all dead already! I admire all artists working today.”
“One of my favorite books is probably South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami, intensely romantic and will always stay close to my heart. My husband gave me a copy of this book when we just started dating.”
“My son bought me Possibilities, the Herbie Hancock autobiography for Father's Day. It's such an incredible book about his life and journey. It's been resonating with me since I read it.”
"I always try to travel with a film camera ( usually a Hasselblad Xpan) and my Fuji X Pro 2 that use to shoot digital stills and sometimes shoot visuals. I also like to travel with a Zoom H6 to record birds or water soundscapes."
"It's difficult to name favorite books at all time but I love the late-Stephen Hawking book A Brief History of Time, Michio Kaku's Parallel Worlds and Vision, Richard Dawkins's The Blind Watchmaker, which I find really fascinating learning about the vast and small universe at the same time."
“I enjoy any crafty books, at the moment I’ve got my eye on Rachel Burke’s Be Dazzling.”
"Besides my favourite illustrators that I mentioned earlier I really suggest you check out the Fangasm podcast. This started out as the Potterotica Podcast where the hosts read out loud erotic Harry Potter fan fiction, super funny."
“Music-wise, I feel like I really, really, really like Kamasi Washington and I absolutely enjoy what he does.”
