I enjoyed the video. Thanks
Well, I loved the "trailer", though it is longer than most. Will I want to see the entire piece when released? Here's why I ask. I'm presently engaged in making a semi feature length video (not about photography) and have been toying with the idea of making a trailer for it, certainly no longer than 2 minutes. Yet, I found this to be entirely engaging, possibly subjectively due to familiarity with the subject matter. Was it done slickly enough, like a Peter Lik video, so that I wasn't aware of the length? Anybody think it too long? Just wonderin'.
I'm impressed..the artist is always more interesting than the art...and Mr. Kenna is truly a great artist!!
I found the trailer overly long and the music choices to be bombastic and inappropriate - at times it felt like I was watching a promo for some realty TV show like The Amazing Race. The Hokkaido doco viewable at his website (under 'Interviews') is excellent.
Always good to see him work. Thanks!
1. I could never be a documentary photographer who traveled the world, because I couldn't eat the food. Did you see what she pulled out the mud?!? BLEH!
2. What was that 2 foot long lens he had on his hassy?
I did enjoy the video, but I think it's No Reservations meets Michael Kenna photo shoot. But it does show Mr. Kenna soaking up the local culture which is a part of his art. He's not just a documentarian.
does anybody know the viewfinder and lenses seen at minute 0:28 and 0:50?
