Brutally Honest Mini-Documentary Will Make You Want To Become A 'Stuffmaker'

Mac Premo primarily makes collages -- layered works made of resin and paper and glue and sound and images and film and, in his words, "whatever." Most would call a person devoted to this sort of life's work an artist. Premo prefers the term "stuffmaker."

It's this unpretentious attitude and extreme candor that runs thick throughout the above gem of a mini-documentary, a brief and raw glimpse into the studio and mind of a creative soul who just wants to make things (and sometimes make money from them). If you've ever felt detached from lofty artist statements, pretentious press releases or the art world's endless ability to spout "isms," Premo is a much appreciated breath of fresh air.

In under four minutes he touches on issues from death to making a living, from family to why he continues to make against all odds. It's definitely worth a watch.
