Olivia Janik embraces a mixed media approach to film. Her work fuses traditional drawing, collage, painting, photography, live-action footage, and anything else lying around, to handcraft a texturally rich and unique brand of motion. Psychedelic music videos, tongue-in-cheek strangeness, digital abstraction, and politically charged social crits are only a few ways to encapsulate the versatile nature of her work.
