03/28/08 Setting Up the Mantra Trailer / Durham, NC
This is the first day of the cross-country tour. The kick off is tonight at the Center for Documentary Studies. I’ll be presenting the project during the Fresh Docs program. “Setting Up the Mantra Trailer” was shot in January with Erika Simon in Atlanta, GA. We edited it this week for it’s premier tonight at Fresh Docs.
01/01/08 Spaghetti Junction / Atlanta, GA
The Mantra Trailer visits Atlanta but not before getting lost on Spaghetti Junction. The I-85 & I-285 interchange must be an architectural wonder and it’s almost as fun as riding a roller coaster. The mantras used in the video were both recorded in Atlanta. Erika and I set the trailer up in front of the Java Monkey in Decatur on New Year’s Eve day and at a private party in Virginia Highlands on New Year’s Eve. Response to the Mantra Trailer was friendly, curious and diverse. This entry is dedicated to our most marvelous Atlanta host. Thanks Audrey!
