story, story ideas, what flashes on the screen during a channels surfing session, how to make a demo reel
next project – channel surfing. a couple of hundred super short vignettes, bits of future projects all strung together. an experiment. can there be narrative there? I once told mike that his late night channel surfing was like a performance piece, that he was improvising montage. editing on the fly by memory using a concentration-esque approach, sort of knowing what’s going on on all the channels and composing something out of them. that could be one of the programs.
how about the future history of humans. The entire canon of Dan Kelly films. What’s the point of images? Could it be a feature?
