About the Artist

Michael Sanchez (Seattle) received a 2005 GAP to aid in the production of his short film Ten. A meditation on fate and human relationships, the film revolves around two strangers who meet in an airport and how their lives evolve as a result of that meeting in intervals of ten—minutes, days, and onward. The first in a three-part series investigating human relationships, funding will enhance the production quality with new lights, microphones, and the purchase of a larger hard drive to edit and store footage. “I have always been interested in storytelling whether through writing, art or music,” says Sanchez, “and I find that narrative filmmaking with its use of dramatic, visual and aural possibilities provides me with the best vehicle for realizing my stories.”
