life lately :: Digital Arts + Video

My apologies for the blog being a bit “quiet” recently. Recently, life has been insane. Crazy in the way-too-busy-to-think-way – yet, I’m doing some seriously creative thinking. I am equal parts exhausted and exhilarated.

On Sunday, I spent the entire day shooting a video (with this talented crew). Making a video is hard work. For me, it was arduous to change outfits multiple times, perfect sound bites and exude enthusiasm for 8 hours straight. It’s amusing that ‘behind-the-scenes’ photos always make everything look so F-U-N, but really there are long periods of nothing: setting-up, sitting, waiting. Don’t get me wrong: I love the creative process of making a video – it’s just in a moment of honesty, I confess that it's not as awesome as we sometimes pretend. I am soooo excited to see the final product (and I promise to share with you!). It’s fair to say: this weekend, I discovered I am happy not to be a movie star.

Here are few snapshots of my weekend:

  1. Student work on display at the Guru Gala Ten.
