Needless to say, this was very gratifying – to have somebody take an interest in my work to the point of wanting to actually study it. I answered some questions for him, and I also referred him to this post, from the early days of this blog – which discusses some of the initial choices I made about format and presentation.
Also, I’ve been talking to my good friend Joe lately about storytelling. His favorite posts here, he says, are the ones with a mini-narrative – beginning, middle and end – reflecting our classical, hollywood cinema school training, no doubt. I have to agree; one of my goals with videohaiku, as with written haiku, is to distill an experience or a story into its essential elements – whether it takes the form of a journey, a progression, or an interaction.
Just felt the urge to link around a bit, today. Now, back to the movies.
