It's been a rough month with the passing of my dear oldest sister and witnessing a beautiful friend become seriously ill. My work on final touches has slowed a bit but I've been relieved to stay busy.
The new trailer of "In The Child's Garden: The Educational Legacy of Frances & David Hawkins" was shown at the opening of the Hawkins exhibit at CU-Boulder in January but we decided that the full documentary should be shown in a proper auditorium when the exhibit moves to NCAR in Boulder in March. I will keep you updated and promise that all rewards will be delivered upon completion. Thanks for believing in this project and it's completion.
Greetings Dear Donors,
I apologize for the delay of our deadline for completion of the documentary (new title, The Child's Garden: The Educational Legacy of Frances and David Hawkins). The new deadline is January 10th. In no way have I have forgotten you! If you signed for a reward when you pledged, you will receive notice of the credits and/or item as soon the doc is completed. Thank you for your patience! Here's the scoop on future plans for the doc:
On January 11th, 2003, the doc will "go on tour" with "The Hawkins Centers of Learning Exhibit" at the University of Colorado Boulder's Museum of Natural History. The opening location keeps the feel of the Hawkins' conversations alive, as it closely resembles a living room in the heart of David's own beloved CU. The exhibit and documentary will move to 2 other Colorado venues and plans are in the works for the exhibit to travel to several other states, including New Mexico, Massachusetts and Maine.
Now have 13 video sequences, all parts of the whole that need to be woven into a final logical and hopefully captivating piece. It's interesting to work with sequences, waiting for them to "tell" you where they belong and how they connect.
There are a thousand choices in sequencing a story and patience is key in delivering something of value. Sometimes favorite clips must be cut.. (even whole sequences) in order to make it of reasonable length. Letting go of imagery you've spent time collecting, logging and editing can be difficult but I enjoy this part of the process.
Thinking of my project supporters!
Recently, while reviewing a rough cut of the documentary with Betty Kellogg, whose photography is featured throughout, she reminded me about a favorite phrase found in David Hawkins writing.
In his Chapter, Living in Trees from his book, The Informed Vision, David wrote:
To understand mathematics, or physics,or geography well enough to know ways of reconstructing them, of rooting them so to speak in the child's garden, is a major intellectual undertaking for the best minds we have.
Therefore, as it goes with "working titles", ours has evolved. The title is now In the Child's Garden: The Educational Legacy of Frances & David Hawkins.
Thanks again to all!
