Uncle Norm's Interview!!

I worked on this interview all week long.  The editing format from this interview is motivated by Screen Tests videos of the New York Times. I first edited the clips in chronological order and showed it to uncle Norm himself. Norman suggested that I try shuffling the clips in more random order, and we both think it's so much more better. Much more rhythm and energy. I made the title page with After Effects. It's not as sophisticated as I'd like it to be, but, hey, that's all I know how to do so far. As far as the shoot, it was a simple three point lighting set up with my new ghetto video lights.

This week especially, I've been focusing on focusing and enhancing creativity. Creativity is a weird thing because the way it manifests seems totally random. I think I've been an artistic minded person all my life, but it's this week that I am becoming somewhat obsessed with creating a environment where creativity can thrive.
To me this means clearing away a lot of life clutter; Internet, stupid tv, clothes on floor...
and instead increasing my ability to focus like when I was in junior high or high school.  Hope to post more on creativity as I work.
