anne maree barry says hi

I started this blog in 2007. No one had heard of The Wire and I was making experimental films that a select few saw. My initial tagline for this blog was: 'I write concisely. always. I'm trying to improve this - however, sometimes few words work better'. Then I found Twitter. However, I still post here once a week, so feel free to comment or just to simply say hii.

I recorded a voice over for Anamesis (2008) at Lotus Films. It was an exciting process. As an artist using video as my main medium, I have on occasion performed for the camera - however these experiments proved to be merely sketches. Performing for sound rather than the camera was kind of exhilarating. The first reading of the story was actually quite awful, the second was a bit better. By the third and fourth take, a voice came from within and whoever was speaking certainly wasn't me. Was I actually acting? (anyone who knows me, knows that I mumble sometimes and I am softly spoken) This voice was clear, direct and kind of frightening. Frightening like when you are asleep and you answer your mobile phone and an alien voice literally comes out of you - and then you hang up because you realize you ARE actually asleep.

My voice does not sound as terrifying as the boy in The Shining but simply does not sound like me - which is only a good thing. I also realised that my pronounciation is awful. I may attend some elecution lessons.

Thanks to Simon Flangan - we still have some work to do.
