I was interviewed and videographed (filmed?) by a student at nearby Maine Media Workshops (used to be Maine Photographic Workshops) in Rockport, Maine–also found on Facebook here. This came up almost at the last moment back in October, and I am finally (hanging my head in shame) getting to sharing it with all of you! I quickly tidied the few messes in my studio—I guess having been too busy to work there paid off! I took out a bunch of my quilts to put on the design wall, and learned a lot from the filming process. Thank you so much for picking me! How lucky I am to live near the workshop, eh?
Anyway…here I am…. Hope you enjoy seeing the clip and learning a bit about my “life before quilting” and my journey in quilting. And special thanks to our son Joshua, whose quilt is featured at the end of the video along with his music (you can here more on YouTube here and here and here) and to the videographer who wanted to use his music to accompany his quilt! WOOT!
First, I WANT her photo-flood lights, the kind with the silver rectangular umbrella and a white cover that diffuses the light so well. Then, in filming, there is an “A Roll” and a “B Roll.” The A roll is the main interview (took about 10-14 minutes), which you will hear in the soundtrack, and see parts of the interview (Gosh… I hate the way my mouth moves when I talk! Usually I hate the sound of my own voice, but that was OK this time… but … erk! Anyway, that is totally to do with me and nothing to do with student or how cool this experience was!). The B Roll is the next 5 hours of filming, edited into a coherent 3-minute video.
PS: The student (a woman about my age or a bit younger) is employed by a major US Corporation and is in charge of the film/photography. Since they subsidized her attendance at the workshop, she asked that I not name her or the company so there would be no appearance that this clip was related to the company. So that’s why the anonymity–but THANK YOU sometime-quilter and awesome photographer and videographer for picking me!
