Powerful Audio

Third Coast International Audio Festival is gearing up for their conference later this year. Here’s a powerful one from their library:

Someone’s Screaming Outside revisits the rainy Florida night George Zimmerman met Trayvon Martin, using only 911 calls from that evening and musical samples from YouTube videos reacting to the tragedy.

Producer Mad Genius has stripped familiar media hyperbole from the story, inviting you to re-examine your own conclusions about the incident, without the usual excessive news analysis and talking heads getting in the way.”

A Quote from Nora Ephron

“Maybe young women don’t wonder whether they can have it all any longer, but in case any of you are wondering, of course you can have it all. … It will be a little messy, but embrace the mess. It will be complicated, but rejoice in the complications. It will not be anything like what you think it will be like, but surprises are good for you. And don’t be frightened: you can always change your mind. I know: I’ve had four careers and three husbands.” — Nora Ephron

 

I believe. Rest in Peace, Nora!

Celebrations

I’m still reeling from inspiration from a recent trip to Barcelona, Spain with the Center for Digital Storytelling (among other things!). Still working on posts about that trip and workshop for the JMG site (dear god – ignore the existing corny blog titles. I’m working on that), as well as updating the site’s layout and design. I want to keep it even simpler and use Stacey App. I haven’t released it yet, but it’s coming along (and now with new logo! Yah baby!).

I also worked as second camera with colleague/friend Damone Brown on a recent wedding. I think he did a great edit job! I learned a lot and look forward to more projects 🙂

Spring seems to be the season of birthdays in my circle as well. I loved this video of my free-spirited friend Mai as she celebrated her day!
