what do you do when you see a pretty lil sunset? you fix your gaze on it. you dream of a long lost love. you wished that the moment would never end?
or if you are a certain person called john marshall – you go looking for sheets of cardboard and cut out shapes in it.
but then john isn’t like any other john marshall.
an emmy award winning tv producer, john likes to spend his time when he isn’t busy with work by looking out into beautiful maine sunsets and imagining which scene can he bring to life, using just cardboard, scissors and the light from a sunset.
in a series aptly titled, sunset selfies – john creates humorous scenes with just a cardboard cut-out character and himself in it. he then adds a line or a dialogue to it that just makes it better.
he then sets his camera on a timer and races to get himself into position. over time he has creates sunset selfies with characters like kermit the frog, the creatures from hit netflix series – stranger things, harry potter and also a few from hit hollywood films.
