Who Am I ?
An Introduction to WORM CARNEVALE
1: Who am I?
2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?
I’m the guy that loves pressing buttons on cameras. I’ve been labeled a photographer, director, film editor and cinematographer. If there’s a job involving any type of camera, I’ve done it or have an interest in performing it. I’m currently working on three short video vignettes and an art exhibition on February 12th and April 1st.
3: Where are you from and where are you going?
I’m originally from Delray Beach, Florida and moved to NYC two years ago. I plan on dying here which will be my greatest accomplishment. As for where I’m going …. Heaven?
4: Who is your biggest hero?
Individuals who always look at the positive in their life regardless of how negative their current situation appears.
5: What book is your bible?
The actual Bible; that book that most people usually have negative opinions about and believe to be full of fairytales. What can I say? I get empowerment and inspiration from “negative fairytales”.
6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?
I love fine art, cinema, cameras, fashion, electronic music (specifically dubstep and drum ‘n’ bass), punk rock, beauty, ugliness, eating out and roller coasters. I hate water I cannot see-through, most breakfast dishes and haunted houses.
7: What is your raison d’être?
Finding the ugliness in beauty while showing the world a fine line runs between what’s scary and sexy.
8: What is your favorite color?
I don’t have a favorite color. I’m big on color schemes. Some of my favorites are green/purple, hot pink/neon yellow, black/white/silver/red and red/gold/black
9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?
I have little to no knowledge in regards to comic books. Maybe that guy with the knives coming out of his hands. I just did the all-powerful ‘Google Search’ and it says his name is Wolverine.
10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?
Choosing favorites in any form of a question is extremely difficult for me. In this case I would have to generally say any museum or art gallery. The reason I say that is because I’m more interested in the artist who’s being shown rather than the place itself.
11: What turns you on?
When intellect is mixed with creativity, liquids which drip from holes, thick perfectly shaped eyebrows, high heels, painted nails, dead women born in Brooklyn like Gene Tierney and Rita Hayworth.
12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?
What is your view on pornography? It’s like Walmart, cheap and easy. If you’re going to make something to turn people on do it with implication and mystery, not showing the viewer the direct picture. People always want what they cannot have and when they don’t know exactly what they’re getting, it’s all the more stimulating for them. I think porn is for people who lack the imagination for turning themselves on.
