One of the first interviews I ever done I made about one of my best friends, Ben Satt. I met him at Art Lab's Summer Studio Scholarship Program at Snug Harbor and if we both didn't go to this program we probably would have never met. Even though we both have lived on Staten Island our whole lives we live in very different communities. I went to Catholic School and Ben went to Yeshiva.
When I decided I wanted to try my hand at documentary filmmaking, I felt like Ben was a very interesting subject to ask. I wanted to learn about how his life on Staten Island compared to mine and also how his religion influenced his artwork.
Ben is the nicest person you'll ever meet and I hope you enjoy listening to him and getting to see his little exotic friends in his interview!
