Mutsu Crispin is the art alias of John DiGeorge, who spent his childhood outside of Atlanta playing in streams, collecting Legos, watching cartoons, drawing monsters and triumphing at video games. He studied visual art and filmmaking at Harvard, and was an assistant instructor for classes in oneiric cinema (films dealing with dreams and other altered states of consciousness). After working on a variety of film and art-related projects in Boston and NYC, he moved to southern Vermont and began producing his first independent feature film, Redbelly, now in the last stages of postproduction. He has exhibited paintings and sculpture, created art installations, worked as a welder, performed as a dancer and clown, and run a small design company.
