Profiles are in chronological order
Profiles is Submarine Channel’s ongoing series of short portraits of creative innovators who are breaking new ground in contemporary visual culture. From mini-docs to snappy Skype interviews, with Profiles your Submarine editors pick the brains of established and upcoming creatives across the spectrum.
PROFILES compiles all interviews from these 4 series:
Pretty Cool People Interviews (2007 – 2010)
Submarine Channel has been creating artist profiles since 2003, while the editorial format every few years or so. In 2007, we upped the bar for online video interviews with our acclaimed Pretty Cool People Interview series. More like mini-documentaries, these interviews captured creators in their natural habitats – be it the streets of Barcelona, the confines of a darkened visual effects studio, or the lofty heights of a skate park. PCP interviews offer viewers an insight into the creative processes of established and upcoming creators across the spectrum. The dedicated website is still accessible here.
