Jamie McRae is an independent film and video artist, residing in Edmonton Alberta. His work primarily consists of shooting on celluloid 16mm film, in addition to shooting digital video. His work can be described as punk rock on sedatives, the decay of the human soul. Jamie's work attempts to explore the fallacy of the human soul, the underlying depression caused by a capitalist society.
Since beginning working at the Film and Video Arts Society of Alberta in 2014, he found the experimental works, and nature of the society's members a large inspiration for his work. His first completed works relied heavily on bent circuit analog video synthesizers with video feedback looping.
Jamie’s work and interests goes beyond the tech, and art side of filmmaking as well. An avid user of his hands, he creates analog paper collages under the alias known as The Crying Man.
