Top Sekret no Longer! [Jan. 6th, 2012|10:12 am]

[music |A whisper in the noise: the birth and death of the day]

I'm really excited to show this to you. So much of what I do is shutting up about stuff that's not soup yet even when you're bursting at the seams to be able to say Look what we did!. I'd love it if you would pass this around and tell your friends and like the video and repost it.f

In April of last year I started talking to novelist Caitlin Kiernan about doing a photo series based on her as-then-unrelased book The Drowning Girl: A Memoir". These talks went on long and eventually morphed into a much larger project that would involve a video trailer for the book as well. We ran a wonderful Kickstarter and I'm happy to say that the first, teaser trailer, is out. Today. You can watch it and get a little glimpse of what is to come.

And (perhaps I should have put this sooner) if you like what you see you can now buy the book.

Brian Siano, who did the video, has assembled a wonderful recap of the miraculous week of shooting we had I really recommend you go here and read it. This is the place to start if you're behind on the story.




Music is by West Thorsdon of A Whisper in the Noise who also did the music for the kickstarter page.

This whole project has been a thing of beauty and I'm so happy to have been able to bring a part of it to life.

drowning girl

the trailer looks like it has echoes of sylvia plath or even virginia wolf.. maybe this teenage suicide is another flavour of emancipation for gender polarity... or the oedipus complex

cheers and blessings
