My camera takes me on adventures on the way to work by seeing things that i just wouldn’t give a second thought. The spoken word in this video is taken from the readout on the console of a MUNI subway train’s console. The view of the train is a loop of the subway driver’s announcement of a 1-minute delay that lasted 10 minutes. Shot on a Fiip Ultra.
The difference between a cameraman and a woman with a camera in her purse is B-Roll. I am an actor who never goes out the door without a camera. I have been a performance artist for 22 years.
“… and her girlish voice lacks the color and texture for character.” (Judith Greene, San Jose Mercury News)
