Piecing together the footage that Miya and I have captured for our collaborative film has been really fun so far. I look forward to continuing the video editing process, and exchanging ideas with Miya along the way as we play with various methods of digital experimentation on video.
I made new half-masks for Shion and I to work with for our video collaboration, which is fitting for us both since we are similarly half japanese/ half white. And the coolest thing happened- instead of mailing her the masks across Canada, I gave them to her in-person! Shion travelled to Halifax for a dance performance, a one night show of ‘YingYun’ (Wen Wei Dance), and we met for the 1st time! We only had a couple of hours together before her performance but we were able to film ourselves with some masks during our brief visit for our project. It was amazing!
