thinking out loud | Week 2 | hours in a police station
Footage from this week was a bit shakier and less pretty than usual, it was a stressful situation.
THINKING OUT LOUD is a new series project attempting to capture weekly visual snippets of what’s on my mind for a full year.
I should be back on schedule next Thursday with a very Sundance-centric episode!
At the end of high school I deleted a diary I’d kept a few years before. I’m glad I did, because I needed to stop dwelling on those emotions. But by doing so I know I have chosen to remember that time incorrectly.
I tell stories loosely. I am never too worried about getting the details right, so long as I convey the essence. Each time I tell a story of my past I rewrite it in my brain, just a little further from the facts. Even when I’m just telling the story to myself.
And I wonder how many things have been edited and rewritten. Lines given to people they didn’t belong to. Backstories made up to suit myself. Events reordered so they would flow better. Emotions simplified. Self justified.
If someone told me the facts now, I probably wouldn’t believe them. Brains are scary.
She just wanted to escape from it all to some still, green, friendly place where she could rest.

Yesterday I got pascalcampion’s book 3000 moments. Today I decided to follow his advice to draw from my own memories, from things that stick in my mind.
I kind of ended up accidentally copying his style a little bit too.

and it’s been waiting around corners since I was
seventeen one year old.
Listening to Trouble by Neon Jungle always makes me think of Harry. Like, sure, sure you don’t go looking for trouble.

Inspired by lies version, I really wanted to make a fading version for myself so I could see where my art lined up well, and where it was vastly different. It seems the main things I changed were the horizon and the value of the path vs trees. Also I gave MK and Sean a bigger height difference than they actually have.
(And we used a different canvas ratio so I cropped the still.)
