My Final Project of Summer Intensive 2011

Skipping the b.s. for right now, here's a quick and dirty post of my final project at RMSP SI 2011.  The following project was the brain child of myself and my good friend, the very talented Erica Prairie.  Watch it full size and enjoy!

Artist’s Statement
by: Karah Sambuco and Erica Prairie

The story of John and Sarah is a story of love and loss and the power it has in our lives. It came to us - almost as if it were being whispered to us by someone else. What started out as merely a personal project, took on a life of it’s own and we were compelled to share this story beyond ourselves. 

This is John and Sarah’s story, as captured through our lenses. It would be impossible for either of us to own it; perhaps it does not belong to us at all. We are simply the story’s messengers. 

As we watched the story of John and Sarah unfold in front of us, we realized that we had come to a point when we could no longer decipher where one of our ideas began and the other’s ended. The story developed first, then the characters revealed themselves, and finally we discovered the song. We knew we had accomplished true collaboration. And we knew we had captured a beautiful story that we’re excited to share with those who happen upon it.
