Here’s your chance to take a peek behind the curtains at Wind-up Dreams Central! A couple of weeks back I played host to a film crew that visited my home and studio to tape a segment for an upcoming airing on Evening Edition, the nightly news program that broadcasts on KPBS television here in San Diego. The crew was here for several hours—their lights, their cameras, and me supplying the action as I worked through the construction of a brand new photo in my backyard studio. It was tons of fun, and the segment is scheduled to hit the local airwaves this Friday, October 14th, during the 6:30 broadcast of Evening Edition.
In addition to the studio footage, I had the opportunity to sit down in my library with film, arts and culture guru extraordinaire, Beth Accomando, for a lengthy interview where we talked about art, toys, religion, and the crazy titles I give to my photos. We also discussed my recently published digital coffee table book for the iPad, Plastic Prophets of Vinyl Redemption, as well as the special packaging planned for the Deluxe Edition of the book scheduled to be released later this month.
With all the footage that was captured, and only a few precious minutes for the segment to run when the piece airs this Friday, it is going to be exciting to see how all this material is squeeeeezed into a concise little segment of photographic delight. Assuming the camera was digital and not film, there will be lots of pixels left on the cutting room floor (more likely than not, all my incoherent art-speak rambling)!
