Project Director's and Lead Invesigator's Statement

What you see captured on this page are the other various media documents that form the web of information concerning Secrets Under the Skin. It is because of Brandon McElroy and Progressive Media Alaska that a great deal of this material could be realized in a professional format. My own four Performance-Based Videos could not have found themselves in better hands (see Jill Flanders Crosby's page for links to these DVDs). Not only did Brandon assist with filming, but his careful, seamless and artful editing of my clip selections for my videos are what made each one them truly unique (see Progressive Media Alaska for a complete description of our working relationship). Project Director’s and Lead Investigator’s Statement

In the field, Brandon's professionalism and organization was critical. He facilitated multiple aspects of this project including focused and thoughtful fieldwork shots, documentation of interviews, multi-channel audio recordings, and media facilitation for both the Fundación Ludwig as well as the Kimura Gallery openings (see the pages for the Fundación Ludwig and Kimura Gallery opening images and narrative). As part of his own on-going research inquiry, he provided additional considerations for the integrity of the overall project. He also took fieldwork material that I brought back to him and provided subtitles for all the Spanish and Ewe interviews. Please enjoy the additional material below.
