As 2016 draws its curtains I head out once again, this time with my elder sibling, Justin Magro, to the locations for additional shooting.
I ventured alone, capturing desolate footage of all four locations with the objective to supplement the footage of the artists on-site as my brother sat and sketched or ventured around the area.
I’ve also received the opportunity to be interviewed on a local Maltese television station in January for the Forgotten Landscapes project.
It is exciting but also added pressure to ensure that things are complete.
I will still need to capture Mark at his studio piecing together his artwork, provide material to Bret in Canada to deliver fantastic promotional material, complete the film, photography, research and book. So much to do but at least I have taken some time off of my regular job in IT to finish this.
It is madness but the good kind as is a relief as 2016 has also brought the news of my mother’s decent into dementia. I cannot put the words of remorse, stress and fear of what will come but these are the bitter tastes of life.
Nothing lasts forever but maybe, just maybe, what you create, out of the spores of an idea, will somehow, someway, live long after the body has turned into dust.
