|From Rose's film Modern Daydreams: Deere John|
"... don't blink because the new is unfolding."
I love this - as a life mantra! It's actually Mitchell talking about his wonderful crowd-sourced dance film Globe Trot in Screendance Journal. I love this film and all of Mitchell's work. Shooting dance seems easy, but to do it in a way that translates the spirit of dance takes a dancer's eye for line and a filmmaker's understanding of the frame. Mitchell's work has all of this plus humor and a sense of human nature that are unique to his point of view.
