Muster and Architecture
I was asked to speak to the Chicago A&M Club for their annual Muster celebration on April 21, 2018. It was an absolute honor. Their membership went above and beyond ensuring Sarah and I enjoyed ourselves and felt comfortable in their city. While we were in town we checked off some tourist boxes. Pizza at Lou Malnati’s. Italian beef and hot dogs at Portillo’s. Millennium Park and “The Bean.” Wind in our faces. It was an action-packed weekend that involved a lot of walking, but we sat down for an hour and a half on a tour boat for the Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise. What an incredible way to learn about the city of Chicago. Of course I brought one of my StoryKeeping cameras along.
Feel Like You’re Right There
A friend was asking about StoryKeeping and how I went about my interview process. I want future generations of viewers to feel like they’re right there in the living room having a conversation with the storyteller themselves. Lots of interview footage shot by other videographers is recorded off-axis, or with the storyteller speaking off to the side of the camera. Who wants to watch someone else’s conversation when they could be in the middle of the action themselves? In the StoryKeeping spirit, I’ve posted these pictures in the same order you’d experience them if you were sitting right there on the cruise. Enjoy!
