Margaret bought me a new (RED) stand mixer. Our old one has been repaired a few times and is making some struggling noises. The new one is just slightly bigger but has a more powerful motor. We made some cookies to break it in. Mom arrived back from BC with grapes for us.
Met with Berny this afternoon and talked about his projections and a bunch of big and small ideas around it. I like that he is investigating narrative in it, although by their nature, loops resist complex story.
After work we headed over to Gabriela Garcia-Luna's opening at Slate. Her photographic work has tremendous texture to it and I told her how I found myself looking at some of them from an angle to see if they really did have depth. Cool stuff.
Completed a short film I'm calling "The Lost Art of Inertia" based upon the first roll of 35mm film I shot with my WWII camera a few months ago. It is primarily a study of rhythm and and experiment with some sound editing I've been thinking about. The finishing touches this weekend allowed me to enter it into the SIFAs. I like to get something to them that has not been shown before, when possible, although this strategy has always failed to get a fall screening and nomination. My only nomination with them was with Eyes of Sorrow Moon which had already shown for two months at the Dunlop and at the CCE print show after that and a handful of festivals. Fingers crossed I suppose.
