Artbound Episode: Without Borders/Sin Fronteras

Judge's comments, "Zorthian Ranch":

"Zorthian Ranch is a well told documentary describing the ranch, work and life of the artist Jirayr Zorthian. The story opens with a good title sequence which captures the attention of the viewer. The storyline is attention-grabbing as it tells the history of the artist and why the ranch exists. The cinematography is stimulating, using moving camera shots and there is a good mixture of legacy footage with new footage. A good blend of natural sound and music is used to set the tempo of the story. The interviews are creatively captured using nonstandard framing. The piece has a good closing which wraps up the tale and nicely compliments the opening sequence. This is a well done short documentary which incorporates a wide variety of cinematic and storytelling techniques."
