Jane Keller, senior editor at Hooligan, led the team that edited the trailer for director Maura Axelrod‘s forthcoming documentary, Maurizio Cattelan: The Movie. The film, slated for a premiere later this year, will profile the Italian artist who retired early following his unusual retrospective at The Guggenheim, in which almost his entire body of work was suspended from the museum rotunda.
The trailer features footage of the enigmatic artist and his irreverent works, as well as interviews with international gallerists, collectors and art critics. The New York Times premiered trailer before it screened at the opening of a Cattelan exhibition at Sotheby’s S/2 Gallery.
Keller led a team of several talents from top New York post houses, including Soloud Music, Groove Guild, Sound Lounge and Nice Shoes. Other notable contributors include DP Lucian Read and title designer and flame artist Susan Armstrong. Keller, who is currently editing the full-length movie, is eager about reuniting the same team to finish it.
“It was exciting for all of us to step out of our daily commercial-making niche and collaborate. Each vendor brought something that demonstrates just how crucial their expertise is to the greater whole of great filmmaking, both visually and sonically.”
Keller is a formally trained artist who first gained creative recognition for her installations in Boston before collaborating with Mierle Ukeles. The film marks her return to the nonfiction arena, which includes her Emmy-nominated work for National Geographic and Vital Voices: A Global Movement, directed by Barbara Kopple, among other TV and film projects.
