When creating a website, I’d like to consider myself a co-collaborator in an online art project. Yet, a fine line exists, as websites are often commissioned to gain exposure and/or sell. Recently, I viewed two powerful films that lend their own inspiration on passion, creativity and industry.

The first is DIG!, chronicling The Brian Jonestown Massacre and the The Dandy Warhols. At its heart, DIG! is about musicians? choices between art and industry, which unfold over seven years of filming.

Second is In the Realms of the Unreal about outsider artist Henry Darger, a reclusive janitor, who’s 15,000-page novel is a “wonderland of imagination” and was only discovered after his death.
