This is the 1st episode in, ‘The New Angle on Recipe$ 4 $urvival’ series and I just love it.
The rain started last night and the weather word was that there was no end in sight until sometime the next day. I woke late in the morning but with great energy despite the bleak & gloomy day; I was very inspired after visiting The Armory (Haj) on Pier 94, PULSE & Volta shows. I dragged the tripod out, kept the height just to my waist, twisted the camera onto the tripod shoe and snapped it into place but now the Protaganist is the cutting board on the corner of my new, French farm table, my hands at work and my vocal banter keep the viewer guessing and laughing.
Not that you would know it, but my foray into video came about ass backwards. Mosaic composition and creating interval for the viewer are the aesthetic concepts and the foundation for all my projects. I was trying to make a ‘sound documentary’ circa 1987. You can imagine, pitching this to record execs got me nothing more than squinty eyes and a reminder, “not to use the D word, you may have to call your project a non fiction feature” and “what kind of director did I think I was, I was shooting in video, not film?” Dlightful, right…now I just don’t care and I think this new angle on Recipes 4 $urvival is brilliant. It’s almost as good as if I were doing a cooking show on the raDio. Another concept I’m looking to pitch.
I’m curious what you think. It will take 8-9 minutes of your time. I hope you’ll share it to your friends. Let’s make Recipe$ 4 $urvival – viral.
I can’t seem to upload the piece directly to this site (seems its too big) so I hope you’ll visit my youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/recipes4survival#p/a/u/1/MmxyGRZYouk…
