Off to Miami

Off today to Miami for Filmgate Interactive Media Conference. Seems not that long since last year’s Filmgate, where I attended Philip Bloom’s one-day workshop that culminated in a timelapse outing at South Pointe Park. We were taxied over in small groups from the Miami Beach Cinematheque, and being in the first group, I decided to go ahead and get set up. When Philip and the other groups arrived, they congregated some distance away. My timelapse already commenced, I couldn’t leave it unattended to join them. Thus I was left unattended, somewhat alone, thinking about the days, with Hemingway’s To Have and Have Not, the departing cruise ships, Floridian passersby, and the intervallic clicks that mark the lapsing of time.

The next day, I busted out the GoPro and drove to Key West. The battery only made it to Cudjoe Key. (The GoPro battery, not the car battery.)

This year, I’ll be with Philip Bloom for a three-day filmmaking workshop in the Everglades. I’ll try to stay with the group this time.
