Herman, Head of Maintenance at New College Of Florida's Fitness Center, recalls a church event from his childhood and reflects on the changing times around him. This video combines a part of an interview conducted by Nicholas Manting-Brewer, a Fourth Year Visual Anthropology Student at New College, in November of 2011. The footage was taken in May 2012 to juxtapose the working life of this man with an aspect of his childhood.
This project is designed to make New College Students aware of the members of their community that they may not often talk to. It is a continuation of a Soundslide Project that I worked on with Sarasota County last semester. Herman has been a friend for the past three years. This film is a dedication to him, his hard work and our friendship.
Unlike most of my work, which I edit on Final Cut Pro, I wanted to keep things bare minimum this time around and kept it entirely in iMovie. :)
CURRENTLY, Herman is collecting old bikes that students do not want to fix and give to young children in his neighborhood. If you live in Sarasota and are at all interested in donating a bike, please contact Nick Manting-Brewer @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
