I am constantly urging myself to take risks and try something new. I usually defy my level headed, even-minded Libran self for the daring Sagittarius. What winds up happening is that I’ll choose to take a nap instead. But I’m feeling itchy again. Not the kind of itchy that involves high tailing it outta the Penh and into radically different climes (last year it was Turkey and Russia in the middle of a political hoopla). This time it’s artistic risk. And to me, that feels like even more is on the line.
What I’m getting to is that I really want to get into video. Like super badly want to figure it out and produce something. But the issue is what?
Which means I’m looking for inspo and of course the first place I’m heading to is Alice Gao. I’m a huge fangirl and even though she’s known as a photog, she’s dabbled in the moving image as well. These sumptuous little videos of the city are swoon worthy. I wonder if I could paint this little corner of Southeast Asia in the same light.
And of course, these little guys involve coffee and wine. Happy Monday, folks.
