I am done, almost. A new piece for our writing project and this version is a revision and it has taken days, weeks, lots of thinking time, lots of sitting with my dueling computers writing, rewriting on the 13″, working the Final Cut software on the 17″. Selecting photos and deleting, wondering what I can’t leave in/out.
The original version debuted to an audience of 4, the second at a conference presentation of approximately a dozen but here on the internet, let the viewing begin. It’s up on Vimeo now HVWP at 10 and I have sent it on its way to a number of “friends” in my address book and the responses are coming in and then what? What happens to it and what feedback do I really want and how do you give feedback to digital pieces? Answers to consider…
As for the process: Different than personal pieces. This one demanded the voices of our site to sit with me and consider: what was left out? Who’s the audience???
It was great to put this together alone and then with my buddy Jackie who has been working with me for years. I’m wondering too, when do more of us get messy in the digital world. We maintain as a writing project that you have to write to teach writing. Now does everyone need to create a digital story to truly understand what goes into its creation and how then do you respond to a piece?
Interesting thoughts to consider…
