A cozy evening dining in finds congenial cooks in the act of creation. Kumbaya is the name of the wine. Music from a steel drum band, playing at the park that weekend while runners ran in support of a cause, goes with the ambiance, if not the Italian fare, of the occasion.
Friends, health and fitness are found in one happy group that works out several times a week in a community pool, with a monthly pizza night adding to the good times.
This was another iPhone video project combined with a soundtrack I composed with GarageBand instrument loops. I really enjoy syncing motion with sound, each adding to the impact of the other. My goal here was to reflect the joy and friendship of this group of friends, devoted to each other and their swims. When it comes to comaraderie, it never hurts to amp up the endorphins.
Dance! Tell! Celebrate Me! is a school assembly program designed by dancer, Colleen Clark, and storyteller/musician, Susan Weber for Young Audiences of Northeast Ohio. As we celebrate who we are with dances and stories from around the world, we move our bodies, use our minds and honor the beauty inside us. Key concepts include healthy choices, positive self image and how people express themselves through culture.
Many thanks to Walt Campbell for the videography as we launch this new show!
I shot and edited this on my iPhone. I created the soundtrack with GarageBand instrument loops.
Seems I've always enjoyed making things for people I hold dear (and these particular people are especially videogenic). It's harder to scale that up because I really can't personalize without a personality in mind.
Maybe it's why live music in a small setting reaches my emotions more likely than the recorded song. My presense is stronger, the smaller the venue, the nearer the performer, giving me some small imput into the performance.
Now that I carry a movie camera around in my pocket, chance encounters with somebody like Larry can be shared easily. I stll have to work on my courage to walk up to a stranger doing cool things and hit record. Larry made it easy.
When I first heard him singing and ringing, I walked around the block to another store and back, to find Larry still going strong, doling out the holiday spirit to passers by. He told me I made his day and he planned to tell his sister he was on YouTube.
Larry, you certainly made mine!
