A while ago I wrote here: https://hannalietaute.wordpress.com/2014/05/27/lights-camera-action/ that I’ve been interviewed by the television program DeKat TV.
I have received the link for the youtube for those who have missed the live version.
I would like to thank Melanie Tait the editor for the link. Thank you Greta Petersen (presenter) and Jorrie van der Walt (camera man) for their patience since this was a first for me. I would also like to thank The Erdmann Contemporary Gallery for the use of their premises.
Ladies and gentlemen…without further adieu:
I’m not exactly sure about my age in the above photo. I was told that this was the first time my parents bought a camera (it was a polaroid camera). Apparently I went missing in the shop for a short while. When they found me they took this picture.
Now years later I self-psychoanalyse this and wonder if the above experience caused me to have such an aversion to cameras? I do not feel very comfortable in front of them.
On Sunday I had to face the Cyclops (my name for a camera). I had a interview with DeKat TV which they will broadcast later in the year.
I tried to do breathing exercises, a friend gave me a natural remedy to relax. I felt jittery and talked fast, but after a while I started to enjoy the whole experience. The camera man and presenter also helped to make me feel more comfortable.
Afterwards back home I pondered about my answers to their questions. I get frustrated because I feel that I left out certain info which could be important or that I used my language wrong…..what is said is done – in the end it was fun.
Thank you DeKat.
