Xander Berkeley

Berkeley visits Guffogg at his home in Hollywood where his life is discussed, beginning with his childhood and getting involved in his school theater productions, leading to his skill as a makeup artist and mask maker. These talents, along with his highly accomplished acting career, all lead us into his portraits, which are made of multiple layers of paint built up over time that he then carves back into, revealing hidden colors that read like a script for a movie about an archaeological dig. The camera crew goes with Berkeley to his Hollywood Hills home, capturing the excavation process as his knife cuts back into the painted surfaces, revealing colors that for Berkeley, read like a script.
