Video Producer, Juan Carlos Romera Comments on the Printmaking Master Classes Project

September 28, 2011 Leave a comment

Juan Carlos and Mario Romera at workWhen I conceived this video tutorials project I was determined that my first subject should be printmaking with Maureen Booth. I’ve known Maureen and her husband, Mike, for years. In fact, we live just a couple of kilometers apart on the outskirts of Granada. I’ve worked with both of them on other projects and have always admired Maureen’s prints, as well as their uniquely creative lifestyle.

Maureen was actually the female lead in Bive, a 38-minute short film I made in 2006. She  played an English printmaker who falls in love with a Spanish fisherman, causing an uproar in Mediterranean fishing village. That film had a brief printmaking sequence which opened my eyes to the magic of creating art with inked plates.

Now, seven years later, I have the privilege of working again with Maureen and delving further into her printmaking world. I hope you find the experience as rewarding as I did.

What’s a Gallinero? And why would you want to stay there?
