The Fountain

My experience working on Darren Aronofsky's 2006 film "The Fountain" stands among the most unforgettable experiences of not only my career, but my life in general. Darren, along with his close friends Ari Handel (co-writer), Eric Watson (producer), and my boss James Chinlund (Production Designer), brought the most remarkable energy and infectious passion to the project, which ended up catapulting the motivation of the entire art department to a whole other level entirely. Together with James I worked on numerous sets including the cancer treatment facility where Rachel Weisz's character is treated, as well as the shrine atop the Mayan pyramid which becomes a powerful focus during the film's climax. "The Fountain" will always hold a special place in my heart.
