This summer, I spent some time re-visting footage of my dad talking about our family farm in the upper peninsula of Michigan. I was creating a series of digital shorts that focused on some of my favorite/most memorable farm stories for his 71st birthday. For more on the project, see my post or watch the digital shorts on my Vimeo page.
In the process of editing the 10+ hours of footage, I came across some random clips of playful, loving interactions between my mom and dad. I felt inspired/compelled to craft these fragments of love into brief, one-minute digital moments. These fragments are the initial inspiration for the digital moments project that I’m just beginning.
