Four months has passed since we where given the task of creating a short video that contextualised our practice. My first attempt resembled a strange and noisy pop video. My second attempt was better but the audio frustrated me. Finally after a substantial investment in audio equipment I was happy.
But as in everything I do for this course, when one question is answered another one precipitously takes its place. The last video explained what I was doing but I now feel the need to make a follow up video that explains why I am making/creating. A exploration that will be more for myself than any audience that may view it.
The element that made the last video successful was the narrative: I wrote the story and then I shot my film accordingly. Last night I began writing the first of a number of works, insights into myself and what moves me. I'm not sure how many of them I will write but when I am happy I will thread them together with video and stills.
