THE ART HUNTER – “Community Driven Support for the Arts”
The Art Hunter is a new TV show ( released through a YouTube platform), where a different artist is interviewed weekly. The camera crew, the producers, editors, presenter ( David Hunt), the logo design, the intro music, web design all volunteers, with a crowdfunding platform to market the program…giving valuable exposure to the artists.
The Art Hunter is dedicated to interviews with artists of various disciplines – from visual arts to theatre; from writers to actors; from gallery curators to dancers. The show’s aim is to showcase all aspects of the arts, with up close and personal, indepth conversations.
The weekly show will initially be launched on YouTube on The Art Hunter page, making it accessible to a worldwide audience.
Presenter David Hunt has pre-recorded over a dozen episodes to date, and aims to launch the first one in late June.
Artists interviewed so far include Maree Coote, Joanna Murray-Smith, John Pastoriza-Pinol, Julietta Jameson, Patricia Piccinini, Marco Luccio and more, with pre-records ongoing at St Kilda’s Alex Theatre.
With limited opportunities for exposure, The Art Hunter is a rare outlet, offering long-form interviews, allowing the audience an intimate insight into the artist’s world. The Art Hunter team are dedicated volunteers with professional backgrounds in film, television and radio, ensuring a high quality production.
This is a unique opportunity to support the arts community and ensure ongoing exposure for individuals in a shrinking landscape.
