As a quick reflection of the work done this far in terms of the Artist Series video series that I’ve done, I’ve noticed that the work ethic behind the project has been very important for the project and how it has developed.
So I’ve always wanted to do this video series but never wanted to force it, so it was awesome that I could fit it into a brief in uni.
So the main work ethic behind the project is to not plan for anything in the sense of what shots to get, what concept to use, what to say etc. Instead record the interview and shoot visuals that compliment the words being said.
The best example of this was the one I did for the Southern Anchor boys, that video is probably one of the coolest videos that I’ve been apart of and I’ve noticed that’s always the case when I don’t plan what I shoot down to a tee.
This work ethic compliments the interaction with the people that the videos are about as well as people that I talk to about the project and has has a hand in sculpting both the videos and the ideas that I have for the print media side of the project.
I have one more video to shoot and one more to edit together, this will top of the video side of the project and then I will focus on the print media side of this project which offers another level of story telling.
The book that I want to print will detail how the artists that I’ve interviewed, live to create, how they go about creating (creative process) and what ideas, thoughts and advice they want to share.
