Boat Safety begins not with oars, but with determination and courage. Each vessel, port and starboard, must be deemed seaworthy. Each sailor in aforementioned vessels employ must be judged by a court of the deep seas as being buoyant and intrepid. For every barnacle accounted, there must be a jib, pulley, and aft. When the nigh winds howl at ye wooden leg, a boat safety expert must welome them not with merely a grimace, but a defiant scowl, your good eye glistening with the grit of the anticipation of battle. To safely maneuver a boat from one channel to another strait, from these waters to those shores, from bay to bight to tomorrow’s evanescent anchorage, a true practitioner of boat safety must muster an unparalleled depth of knowledge of all things life preserver, choke, and mast. Unto each sail, may ye flap in safe waters, and unto each mooring may ye sway in safe harbor, for where the creed of boat safety travels, thereunto all men shall be safe boating.
Sometimes you have to collaborate with your daughter, draw some vectors, and add some expressions to a subset of after effects layers. Sometimes you have to wake up, shine your shoes, put on your top hat, reconfigure your attitude, and razzle dazzle. Sometimes you have to go to the festival, talk about your movie, have a cabernet, and smile for the camera.
This video interview with the “Everyone’s Bee is Important” team is just such an example. Mila and I were interviewed at the LES Film Fest about our film, and had a ridiculous time hamming it up for the camera team. Giving an interview is always tough, and made non the easier by simultaneously posing as a human jungle gym.
