there’s a little over a week to get my australia symposium plan in the post. so what do i do – write – write lots, lots and lots.
all the writing leaves me stuck.
yesterday i did a good thing to help with my planning, i decided to take today off. for months i’ve staired at our cabin – it’s roof failing. today i’ve fixed it.
as i went to bed last night i started throwing around the notion of what would i do if i had the opportunity to address a festival audience about a non linear production ….. ?
what would i do ?
how would i interact with the audience ?
am i an academic or a practitioner ?
so here’s the rub. something has shifted of late that is resulting in me being a little bit more confident in me and myself. it’s the subject of other posts and ideas so for now i’ll leave it in as a little distraction from the main event of the preparing to submit a session plan for a symposium at a film festival for productions made on phones, tablets and pocket cameras.
i have to say it to myself as its still sinking in. its sinking in that i have a chance to play and be experimental in my approach to the question of how might we engage a festival audience with a non linear production ?
this question is born out of the reason for me being invited to take part in the symposium – the organisers struggle to screen non linear productions on screening day.
in my pre-planning for melbourne i’m giving more space to me and my needs. i need to embrace my dsylexia and how it both limits and extends me. to leave aside the frustrations. to stand in a space that i can say this is me, this is what i do, this is how i think, and actually it all begins with how i feel.
i’ve stayed loose about what my pre-planning is as i have something in mind and i’m waiting to see how my inner critic reacts to it…
