Video Projects

I’ve been experimenting with video technology since the end of my 2nd B.A., in 1991. My first videos were created on an inexpensive VHS VCR and switching scenes was accomplished by pausing the recording VCR and manually putting in the second tape in the playing VCR. Titles were created by shooting hand-printed signs. It was only marginally more polished than the 8mm films I created as a 7th grader in the 1970s. Whether it’s crude VHS technology or non-linear video editing, I got into video creation because sometimes a story is better told with pictures and sound than with words on a page.
