IndieHouse SF Interview: Danny Plotnick
Fueled by his love of punk and alternative culture and infected with DIY spirit, Danny Plotnick started making films that captured a similarly snarly attitude. With over 20 films straddling the line between high-brow and low-brow art, his work has screened at The Museum of Modern Art in NYC, on The Independent Film Channel and MTV, and at underground film fests around the world.
Articles and chatter about his work have recently appeared in Buzzfeed, Vice, and The Fogelnest Files. His work has also been discussed in the recently published anthologies Radical Light and Destroy All Movies. A DVD of his short works, Warts & All: The Films of Danny Plotnick, is available from the Microcinema DVD label.
