“Finding your Voice” Storymaking Spiel from Northern Voice 2010

On a field trip to his home studio in Lynn Valley, storymaker Dave Olson discusses his creative process and thoughts about how to spark new ideas and craft interesting artifacts.

After welcoming you like Mr. Rogers, he plays records, pours tea, shows static montages from Palau, and pulls out all sorts of projects from grade school country reports to Cannabis Culture articles. Finally he shows books by heroes who provided solace and wisdom and then sends you back to the bus stop.

Filmed, Directed, Edited etc. by Andrew Lavigne
Music by The Numbskulz and Black Tories

Presented at Northern Voice personal expression conference in Vancouver, Canada, May 9, 2010.

Upgrade Your Heroes via LIFT Studios

12/18/09,  i sat for a video interview by Cameron of LIFT Studios and riffed themes from my Fuck Stats, Make Art lecture. Especially discussing ideas about heroes and success.

The finished piece is rather delightful and allows me to spiel forth on many of the topics i enjoy so much including my formulas and tactics for creation including philosophical and personal motivations. Cam remixed my words with fresh source material including hero cards, paper point collages, Grateful Dead music and inter-disciplinary artists – and allows enough time for me to get some legs under my stories and give props to my friends and heroes. Thanks for that.

Skytrain Trip: From Main St. to Waterfront — back seat of Mk 1 car

Sitting in the rear seat in a MkI type Skytrain car in Vancouver, BC, I documented the journey. The change in light via tunnels and so on, created interesting reflections and a curious virtual ALRT trip. The tunnels sometimes remind me of Battlestar Galactica (the old TV show) set.
