HONEST WORKSHOP AT FABRICA
May 14, 2012
Cary Murnion, co-principal with Jonathan Milott of Honest, a New York based video and interactive media studio, will hold a three-day workshop at Fabrica, from May 14th to 16th, 2012. Participation is free and open to a maximum of 10 external participants, selected by review of CV and portfolio that must be emailed to both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Lunch and facilities included.
Workshop brief: Using Humor to Trascend Social Restrictions and Create Dialog: Creating a Common Language with Laughs
Visuals that cross barriers and inspire someone to laugh can be very powerful. Having someone laugh while making that person THINK can be even more powerful and create something magical. Cary Murnion will be talking about how laughter inspired to start Honest, how it carries through in their own work a full 12 years later, and dissecting some of the work that most ispires them. He will figure out what are the elements that make these projects successful. He will also present some spectacular failures that ended up creating laughter without even trying. Together we'll laugh, we'll cry, we'll learn. Honest.
