Latitude: 2014 Alaska Arts ConvergenceTuesday, May 6th 2014 by Pat
I recently attended the Alaska Arts and Culture Conference as a filmmaker in residence. It was an exciting and frantic process which involved capturing footage over the first two days of the conference and then immediately leaning into an all-night editing session so that I could present a finished film at the close of the conference.
I had no plan going into the project and I let my interactions with people guide me along the way. The resulting film is a tiny bit experimental and almost evolved into a narrative piece about reindeer sausage. Despite all that, it somehow managed to stay nicely on the rails.
The resulting mini-doc was created completely from audio and visuals captured during the event and what you see here is exactly the film I presented at the conference with the exception of a couple new title cards.
