As a fine artist, Clint is best known for his graphic and disturbing oil paintings. His artwork has shown in galleries and private collections worldwide, and has been featured on magazine covers, clothing lines, and musical albums. His work can also be seen in many major motion pictures, television shows, commercials, and music videos. Clint has created iconic imagery through artwork and props for films by such directors as JJ Abrams (Star Trek Into Darkness), David Fincher (Gone Girl), Oliver Stone (Savages), Wes Craven (Scream 4), Cameron Crowe (We Bought a Zoo), and many more.
Most recently, Clint has turned his focus toward filmmaking, working on many different projects as a director, producer, screenwriter, editor, and actor. Clint’s first feature, the surrealistic horror film “Dry Blood,” (that he produced, wrote, and starred in) had an incredibly successful festival run, winning thirty different awards with an additional twenty-three nominations. It was soon after released by Epic Pictures’s horror division, Dread.
