Making Things.

A True Pack Rat a.k.a. Mildly obsessed

Okay.

So.

I've started to throw away papers. This involves looking through papers. Alot of papers from alot of years. In alot of different boxes.

First I went through a fat folder called "film resources." I probably have not looked through this folder in 4-6 years. In this folder there were handouts from college: guerilla filmmaking, the robert rodriguez 7,ooo dollare film, conceptual art, the deliverables process. Sample budgets and contracts I've swiped from different places I worked. Pricelists for places that don't exist any more. And in that, a little piece of paper advertising the Little Miss Moviola video. Wow! I said! I kept the little neon pink slip, as well as the handout on conceptual art.

Then I went directly to a different file cabinet and pulled out a slim folder that was unlabeled. I had complied the contents of this folder about 15 months ago, when I put most of my personal belongings in storage (that's another story all together). This folder had miscellany in it. Postcards from a few films I worked on. A slip of paper with a doctors name on it. A coupon for contact lenses. A photograph I look. And Yes, a little slip of paper advertising Little Miss Moviola.

It must have been 1998 when I saw Little Miss Moviola.

When I put my things in storage I must have gone through my papers and pulled one of the little slips out, as a reminder. "Yes, this was a cool thing a girl was doing with movies." "Yes, there are cool girls doing things with movies."

Little did I know that that cool girl made that cool movie called "me and you and everyone we know." that's what someone told me at least.

I thought this was serendipitous enough to write here.

May we all have good creative karma.
