This weekend I was in Watercolor, FL for MountainFilm on Tour. It’s a big event down there, one of the biggest film festivals I’ve been to. Who Owns Water was the feature on Friday night in front of a sold-out 750+ people. I was flattered to be in attendance and to give a series of talks to all those passionate people about the Water Wars in the American South.
My blog is getting redone after getting hacked. Stay tuned…
I came across this today from Jim Richardson. Good interview and good advice. I think my favorite line is “I think there is a worthwhile lesson for photojournalists here: They need to think carefully about their assumption that everyone loves photojournalism.” There are plenty photographers out there who need to be reminded that not everyone on the planet wants to be a photographer.
We have toyed with the idea of launching a storytelling collaborative for years. After Who Owns Water, we felt it was time to go live. See it in all it’s early glory here : www.modocstories.com.
