I started being interested in video when Jon got me an ipod for xmas and I realized it took photos and video. We were on our way into NYC when I began experimenting. I’ve never been interested in photography or video (except for going to the movies). But with my first attempt, I was hooked. I felt like a cavewoman with a piece of charcoal and a cave wall. I’m sure my first considered video of the Carousel in Central Park was similar to the first moving picture ever filmed. (I’ll have to google that)
I saw my videos as having 3 important elements: sound, movement, and being short. But I temporarily quit on the videos when I found it difficult to post them on my blog. But 2 weeks ago we hired Sara Friedman from Social Momentum to help us improve our Social Media and the first thing she showed us how to do was post a video.
Since then I’ve created 4 0r 5 “Visual Poems”. Sticking to my 3 elements I’m figuring out how to tell a story, evoke a feeling or convey an idea.
Once again I’m beginning to see things differently. I don’t know where I’m going or where it will take me, but it has me in it’s clutches.
