From here, I’m going to try to post a little something two or three times a week – just a small poem or prose piece I’ve been working on in my spare time accompanied by a voice recording of it being read.
It’s called AudioCoffee, and yes, I’m going to stick with it this time.
Don’t give me that look, you.
Well, I’m well into the semester and more or less settled into my schedule. Despite our current project’s progress taking a bit of a hit in the face of the good ‘ol academic grind, our to-do list is pretty clear. Pat’s got a handle on collecting clips, I’m in the process of recording some audio, and the video is crawling, but making its way along – little by little.
That aside, the intention never really was to just leave this blog out in the open, waiting for pertinent news from our end to crop up. I talked about Fernway being something beyond just the video content we produce – how it’s made up of our entire body of work. This blog should really be a showcase of that, and since I’ve got a better handle of my time now, I really think I should start putting things out there.
I’ve been thinking about a sort of series that I can put up on a weekly basis – something inspired by Patrick’s most recent work for the Rutgers media team. Right now, he’s in charge of a weekly feature called “At a Glance”, where he takes clips of things around campus that the typical Rutgers student might take for granted, and he strings them together into brilliant, artsy, fifteen second snippets.
I want to try something in a similar vein – taking any particular moment from the events of the past week and turning it into a short narrative piece. Something short, sweet, and evocative in a bite sized sort of way. Maybe I’ll call it “The Narrative Moment”? I’ll have a post up soon as a bit of a trial run. Stay tuned.
