Garden Gallery: Los Gatos

So, I have this fun opportunity that a media specialist/video producer friend has presented to me. He’s a talented guy but his day job just isn’t feeding him creatively so he has approached me about maybe doing some videos on the side. I am not sure where we are going to go with this.  At the very least, I will have some clips that I will share here, but we are thinking (since he has done this type of thing before) that if it comes out interesting, we might pitch it to PBS or something.

But here is the thing….what exactly is ‘it’? We’ve had a couple beers to get discussions going, and I suspect we need to have a few more, but I am curious if any of you have any ideas.  We have lots, (so don’t worry if you don’t) but as I look around to see what others are doing in this (totally unfamiliar to me) realm, I see more of what I don’t want to do than what I do. It’s an interesting thing to think not just about content, but how to deliver it, and what is cool, new and special in garden design and also music, video-graphy, presentation, and style.   Its seems big and I am in uncharted territory…so any ideas or encouragement you might offer will be duly fawned over with the rest, as we dare to dream…..;)

This came across my desk this morning, and while this is not exactly like anything I am thinking about, I love it’s feel. Cool music, interesting shots, funky gardens; these get a thumbs up from me. It was created by Mitchell Maher (whose photography site is the bomb — go now, check it out — well, maybe after you watch this video).

    yes, certainly some potential to expand on the Maher ‘cinema’ style. And there is always merit to the old saw about designing by eliminating all the material that it is not. Making a list of the “no way, are you kidding!?” can be pretty revealing once you start wading into multimedia. And there are SO many odd gardens, so many multi-textured especially these days. Has anyone revisited the ones surviving from the 30-40-50s, now being mature and well-settled? might be an interesting contrast – there&then with the here&now.

    On the one hand, it would be lovely to move through a garden in video, and see the perspectives change. On the other hand, I couldn’t check in from work.
