Mixed Media Memoir

I am in the early stages of developing a new, expansive and rich form of story-telling for the screen which, I am calling  – Mixed Media Memoir.

At the core, the MMM programs I will be creating center on story telling excerpts drawn from recent and current video vignettes and documentaries, my earlier black and white photographic essays, thematic color photographic portfolios found in my 10 year Nature/Culture project archive. Along with my images the narrative content will include my spoken word monologues, field recordings when possible and atmospheric soundscapes I create during post production to compliment the visual documentary content.

The wide “pallet” I plan to work with will also include other supporting material in order to enhance narrative continuity amongst the thematic story excerpts and create a contemporary context for the selected narrative theme each program will embrace. While these elements will be used sparingly I see the various types of supporting content listed below as “connecting tissue” and storytelling devices: vernacular and vintage ephemera, online research resource material, Google Earth “ flyovers”and screen-scapes, along with artifacts I have gathered in the field related to some of my stories. When I feel such elements will enhance my story I plan to include – imagery of paper roads maps, vintage postcards and travel documents, vernacular snapshots, quotes, excerpts of news stories.
