Nice encounter with Nancy Schiesari, as we managed to meet at the SXSW How to Create a Viral Video panel, that ended up with a surprising “surprise“…

Me, Paulo, Luís and Ana attended the Intro to Digital Documentary Production Workshop at FCSH in the scope of the Summer Institute 2009 – it was an extremely constructive experience, and it would be great to have the opportunity to continue into a post-introduction workshop some day :) Editing and directing are also areas to explore, and warmup exercises like cutting a trailer would be very interesting, too.
We also had the privilege to see her most recent documentary, Tatooed under Fire – beautiful and impressive, it’s awesome!

For the RTiVISS interactive installations proposals, Nancy suggested the project “Burning Man” – the movie, by Gone Off Deep, a documentary production company in Austin, is a striking reference to retain! The filmaker Robert Rodriguez, a UT Austin recent graduate ;), is also a reference to get back to – here’s his Spring Commencement speech.
Now fingers crossed for  the UTA/FCT call proposal for Playing with Fire approval – I’ll be looking forward to get in touch with her friend and son, who are fire dancers, in case the project is up and running!
