On-camera interview this morning with Maryland Public Television for their program, Artworks. I’m excited to see what they cut together. The interview will air in Maryland first on Wednesday, January 11, 7:30 PM and will repeat Saturday, January 14, 9:00 AM, Monday, January 16, 5:30 AM.
Katrina Threat conducted the interview and focused, thankfully, on the heart of the movie, which hopefully will allow audiences to discover the soul of the project.
I heard the camera operator thinking outloud about shot composition (Craig and I were placed next to each other in one of the edit suites at BlueRock Productions)
“When we get going,” I announced (warned?), “it sometimes turns into a Marx Brothers skit.”
She laughed. “I’ll be prepared for anything, then.”
(It’s true. We get silly. At one point in the interview, Craig started rocking back and forth in his chair. The Director asked him politely to stop. I leaned over and grabbed his shoulders looking back to the crew and saying, “Here, I’ll hold him steady! Go ahead, ask your questions.” Silly stuff.)
Afterwards, Craig arranged for Edy Bondroff to join us for lunch and then the three of us—along with Claudine and a couple of her volunteers at the JCC, a sweet Parisian named Arlette and a fun-loving fellow named Howard—started laying out the framed Freedom Dance artwork and began hanging the show. (We completed about three-quarters of the exhibit in 5 long hours.)
Howard showed an interest in the animation Craig was creating for the movie and as it turns out, hemay be helping us in the art department.
Too tired to continue. But it was a wonderfully busy day with good accomplishments.
