A Justin Hall Show
Directed, Edited, Produced by Ryan JunellThis show is a non-denominational ministry for young people, where I talk to folks about their lives. Intelligent interviews with unusual folks. Respect and reverance for my guests and the audience.
After wrestling with boring talking heads in an interview show for months, we head back into post-production for a new visual style.
Three interviews with young artists, cut and edited. Introduction and wrap-around segments currently being edited.
Here's some stills:
After 18 months in a cubicle I was ready to do something where I have to stand up. I'd had some experience with television, and I found I took to the work - performing ideas for a low-level pedagogy.
A dream career mixes speaking and interviewing - you learn and process in real time. I like writing, but talking and listening, I really get amped up. As I took to games when I got restless with studying the web, I think I take to video when I get restless making static media.
So in February 2001, I got myself a tivo and taped a bunch of TV - I enjoyed especially Mr. Rogers - his form of direct address, plain speaking, and his interviews that take place in the studios of the folks he cares for.
So with Ryan, we brainstormed a field interview show. March 2001, we started taping.
Many folks ask me, what is the intended audience? Where will the show show?
Maybe it's the web rubbing off on me - I intend to make something I believe in, and then show that to people. Frankly, I've got enough work writing and speaking where I don't need to bend over too far to make TV for money. I make a video and if someone likes the idea, I'm happy to work with them. I've got some friends in Los Angeles, we'll see what they say. Meanwhile, I have friends in San Francisco who are doing broadband streaming TV stuff, so maybe it will end up online! Then I'd have the freedom to interview who I like, directed by Ryan's good instincts, and share it in the way of the web. Why not?
Stay loose, dude.
