Johnny Magee

Residency at MIRIAD

Off to Delhi very soon

Posted by Johnny Magee on 20th March 2007

I've started packing my bag.... and am trying to work out how to get all my cameras, computers, hard drives and clothes into a 20kg allowance. I did look into buying an extra 10kg excess baggage.... mainly for my tripods (I have two, a normal looking one and a monopod) and after a flurry of phone calls, established this would cost 400... I can buy ten tripods in Delhi for that... and I'm feeling bad enough adding to the world's carbon... so will resort to a carboard box on a chair!

I'm Flying KLM from Manchester via Amsterdam

I'm going out a couple of days early to give Barney, Jeremy and Anupa a hand with the Exhibition. I am going to show some of my films - which started out as a set of six, but with the pressure of my other work, this has come down to three.... and may even be two. It will definitely be two as they are already made. I rather fancy making one of them during the flight, I've always wanted to edit on the 'fly' (sorry).

During the cHAT week, as well as taking part to tease out everyones ideas and thoughts... I plan to record the main speakers (using video), take lots of pictures and keep a 'LIVE UPDATE' going on the HAT web site. This is a new feature we have added just for cHAT week. So apologies in advance if I annoy any of you with my camera.

See you in Delhi!!
