 IMPERFECTIONS - an interview

Screen_shot_lowres

 

Early in October 2018, I received a request from a highly regarded, former student of mine, Scott Northrup, now teaching video classes in Detroit at the College for Creative Studies. He asked if a crew of his students could interview me as fulfillment for a short documentary assignment. I agreed and mid-month, met the five young filmmakers, each with a specific responsibility, at my home studio.  [Irish Jurvis; director, Jed Kogler; cinematography & edit, Maria Leenders; lighting, James Pyrce; sound recording, and Matt Pfeffer; interviewer]. Each also had to produce an edited personal version from all the gathered material, but only one would be judged best. This added a competitive real-world edge.

I was given permission to share the winning video, IMPERFECTIONS, by Jed Kogler, (one of his many accomplished works available on Vimeo, under the name, ‘Darxinema’). This brief, 3 1/2 minute portrait/interview compliments my own films through its rhythmic fluidity and compressed relationship - - and that is very much appreciated. It can be viewed by clicking here. Thank you Jed and crew!
