Not every artist can boast of having his own personal documentary crew. Charleston native Tim Hussey is one of the few local painters who can, and the unassuming guy isn’t the kind to boast at all. He was approached by videographer Adam Boozer, who wanted to shoot a six-minute short about Hussey. Through 2009, the project blossomed into a 45-minute epic with interludes shot in Tennessee and interviews with local friends and art experts. The documentary, titled Running by Sight, premiered at the Sottile in February. Boozer and Hussey described the free event as one of best nights of their lives. It will be re-screened at Redux on March 12 at 7 p.m. After that, the video will be distributed to film festivals and galleries across the country, spreading the word about Hussey so the shy guy doesn’t have to.
