This project was completed in late 2010. Inspired by Andy Warhol's "13 Most Beautiful" I sought out my most willing friends to participate in what would be my first video project. I ended up with a fabulous collection of still photos along with a full hour and a half long film. The first and only (as of August 2012) screening of this film was December 31, 2010. Thanks again to everyone who has participated and here are some of the still shots I took while setting up each persons video portrait.
This is a LOW quality version for the web - if you are interested in owning a HIGH res version please contact me. They are $20 and include a FULL DVD of the high res video, and a case and jacket designed by me.
I am also open to showing this in a gallery exhibit along with the portraits that accompany this piece.
Things to note:
• Each participant sat in a QUIET room, alone, for 5 minutes while the camera rolled.
• Each participant was instructed to sit in a chair and remain within the view of the camera, try to sit still, but not to worry if they were moving about.
• The video was recorded on my Nikon D90 in HD mode. (YES - this is LOW quality so I could fit it on the web)
• The music and order of the video was edited later.
