“I am pleased to hold events that partner wine and culture. Last year, at the first DWNTWN Art Days, our WinePhoto International Photography Exhibit was a great success,” commented Wine by the Bay owner, Stefano Campanini. “It is evident that Miami is just as passionate about wine as they are with art. And considering how Miami responded to SOMM, I think this short will be well received.” (At the inaugural First Friday Artwalk in Downtown Miami, Wine by the Bay hosted the art and wine of Italian artist and vintner, Sandro Chia.)
An Official Selection at the 2013 Sonoma International Film Festival Shot on the hillsides of the Santa Ynez Valley, experience the quiet solitude of life as a farmer, an artist, and a vintner. Featuring vast landscapes and melancholic soundscapes, this glimpse into the life of winemaker Ernst Storm digs beyond the winemaking process to an exploration of universal artistic passion.
“STORM was born out of a desire to learn more about the winemaking process and to tell a visually compelling story that communicated the universal desire that all artists share to create something unique that expresses part of who they are,” commented filmmaker Daniel Addelson from his studio in California. “Winemaking and filmmaking have a lot in common and I hope that the film communicates the universality of artistic expression no matter what the medium.”
Addelson graduated from Boston University’s film program in 2004 and specialized in narrative driven documentary, studying under the protégés of influential cinema verité filmmakers like Ricky Leacock and D.A. Pennebaker. Now living in Los Angeles, Addelson has worked in commercial, TV, and feature film post production while carving out his own style of filmmaking which he defines as, “emotionally driven, character-based documentaries with a unique visual style.”
He has worked with brands such as Geico, Google, American Express, and the American Cancer Society and for TV networks like Bravo, G4, and Lifetime. Currently, in development is Addelson’s first feature length film, GRIT – a documentary about how character, not intelligence is the greatest predictor of success.
