I made my public debut as a video artist on Saturday, April 4th, 2009, at the CreateHere gallery on Main Street, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’ve titled the piece “The Wide Canvas of Faces.” I built an 8-foot by 2-foot canvas … Continue reading
Yes, you’ve heard correctly: I’ve taken the “leap of faith” and entered the Realm of the Self-Employed. I resigned from Atomic Films in August, 2008, after eight years of employment as their video editor. Nowadays, I’m supporting myself with professional … Continue reading
Class starts soon at Chattanooga State… and I’m teaching it! Nonlinear Video Editing, Co-241, with me as Adjunct Instructor. Exciting and humbling. I’ll be explaining to the students how to edit video using a computer. Fortunately, it’s something I’ve been … Continue reading
Kofi Mawuko has a fun band of musicians with the name Ogya. They performed live at Nightfall a couple weeks ago, and I videotaped their show. Here’s an excerpt of Ogya!
I’ve launched a new part of the Community Communication Project, concentrating on that slice of the communication pie called “Television and Video,” finding a way to bridge that gap between actual people and how they can share with each other. … Continue reading
Out working in the back yard today, mowing and whatnot. Here’s a little glimpse of me in all my Philip Luckey glory.
This week’s video clip features another concert in Kim’s living room, shot last Sunday (March 9, 2008). Steve Poltz returns with the Cynics (otherwise known as the Truckee Brothers), and is joined by a belly dancer (from Dandasha Dance Company). … Continue reading
This week’s video clip is a blast from the past. Way back in September, 2006, my friend Kim held a living room concert in her, well, living room, featuring Steve Poltz. Here’s one of the songs from that 3-hour concert, … Continue reading
This week’s video clip features Lumbar Five, a local band that played at the Mudpie last Thursday night. Note the wonderful African drumming solo by Kofi Mawuko. Thanks to Lumbar Five & the Mudpie for letting me capture this event.
A couple weeks ago, my friend Kim hosted a living room concert for Billy Harvey. Here’s a sample from that night:
I recently visited the IKEA store in Atlanta; wow, what an experience that was. A little mind-boggling at the selection, a little overwhelming due to the odd mazes you travel through… All in all, an intriguing place, and the prices … Continue reading
I had a great time today talking with the students in Elizabeth Gailey’s class on “Making a Documentary” at UT-Chattanooga. The main focus was “Lighting on a Shoe-String Budget.” I’ll share some of the tips later.
I have compressed the entire SPIRAL FUGUE documentary to QuickTime and uploaded it here on my website for your enjoyment and education. I enjoyed the process of making this piece as well as the product that is the result, and I … Continue reading
A quick metapost: I’ve begun refurbishing the links on the left (Audio/Movies/Biography) with some success, and more to come. Also, in my renovation frenzy I “broke” the Archives of blog entries, but it seems to be fixed now. And yes, … Continue reading
Today, while playing around with my guitar and djembe drum (along with GarageBand, Final Cut Pro, and my little camcorder), I put this together. Sure, I’m no professional musician like Dan Landrum, but I do enjoys the musics.
The webserver at Chattanooga Online crashed over the weekend, losing all files on their disk (including my websites, of course). So, some of my links aren’t available until I restore from my personal backups.
I joined a discussion on a mailing list today about the usefulness/likelihood/profitability of making documentaries (on the International Media Users Group IMUG list). Here’s what I had to say: Would you hit the jackpot on sending your first program out … Continue reading
