Five thousand salmon colored index cards, the seven deadly sins, bizarre anagrams and a host of serendipitous occurrences have mingled in the artist's imagination and emerged on paper as Salmon Deadly Sins. With music by Leftover Salmon, this seven minute flip book style film is a moving drawing; each frame was created and numbered individually, by hand, on a 3X5 inch index card. The movement is fluid and continuous - there are no jump cuts, no breaks in the action, there are no holds, cycles or layers. Scenes are inspired by the names of the seven deadly sins, and by anagrams of the film's title. The theme is self-reflective and contemplative, but does take on an environmental aspect as well. There are many self portraits; also present are images that symbolize the artist's self. These things coexist in the film with images of salmon, and the human ravages to the fish's environment.
