Clearing out the Archive of A/V Artifacts

You’ve likely noticed I’m clearing out the archives of partially finished & fermenting audio and video projects from over the years/decades.

Just a few more left, including:

* Crowdsourcing Community Projects like Tom Sawyer preso at SXSW (crowd-sourced – natch – slideshow video atop edited audio)

* Social Marketing Kung fu workshop (four or five part lightly-edited audio with freeform tactical riffs on all my erstwhile start-up sparking wisdom)

* Healing Journal (as I’ve reached a certain level of acceptance with this debilitating consortium of syndromes, putting a few more video and audio journal pieces, as well as some written narrative, in hopes of educating and inspiring other people, and just for the “permanent record)

* Lost Choogle On episodes (still deciding whether not to release these, as one is maybe a bit too personal and a bit intense, and the other is a super weird montage of all the leftover bits of audio smashed up with songs, snippets and spiels)

I’ll keep cutting and stitching them together, if you keep on watching/listening. Are you on the bus?

Did I mention I love making scrapbooks? Scissors and glue and (miscellaneous & travel-related mostly) ephemera assembled into handmade journals with delicious paper to create a story of sorts. I have stacks of these documented in this archive for my reference and your amusement.

Audrey Hepburn’s Screen Test for Roman Holiday (1953)

Audrey Hepburn’s Screen Test for Roman Holiday (1953) (via Open Culture)

In his biography of Ms. Hepburn, the author Barry Paris writes:

Her Roman Holiday test took place at Pinewood Studio in London, September 18, 1951, under [Thorold] Dickinson’s direction. “We did some scenes out of the script,” he said, but “Paramount also wanted to see what Audrey was actually like not acting a part, so I did an interview with her. We loaded a thousand feet of film into a camera and every foot of it went on this conversation. She talked about her experiences in the war, the Allied raid on Arnhem, and hiding out in a cellar. A deeply moving thing.”

Later, so the story goes, the director William Wyler watched the footage (shown above) in Rome and found it irresistible. He claimed: “She had everything I was looking for: charm, innocence and talent. She also was very funny. She was absolutely enchanting, and we said, ‘That’s the girl!'”
