Wynter Rhys Head  Shot.jpg

Wynter Rhys is a director, writer, editor from the Seattle area. Her signature aesthetic and storytelling style represents all things controversial and abstract that push the boundaries of society and common thinking. She wants her films to ignite raw truth and get under an audience's skin. As a director, she begins and instills the story, but she believes the story evolves and resolves itself within the mind of her audience - which is precisely the reason why her films are so psychological. Universally human, undeniably chilling, and beautifully visceral - this is the foundation of every piece she creates.

artist statement: I'm a very visual director, so when I write my scripts I have a very clear idea of what I want the finished piece to look like prior to production - down to color, mood, shot placement/order, and even editing style and timing. I believe interpretation to be an extension of my work. The underlying message of my films, to some, is like a faint evoked memory or deja vu - for others, it's clear and in their face from start to finish. I write something I am passionate about, and then I convey it through visual correlation, but it becomes art when it is taken in by other's eyes and processed in their minds, or even thought about later. That is when it goes from a project to a piece. And if my piece lingers, if it is reflected on, if it raises questions - then I have done my job.
