  • Silence being my artistic frame... Working with symbols vs signs

    Loving this book by JF Martel, Co-host of the excellent Weird Studies podcast. P69 speaks to how "the transmutation of signs into symbols is achieved through framing" which I see as being the silence practice in my filming. Nice to make the analogy of an artist's canvas or a theatre stage, with the simple fact of sitting with someone in silence as the "framing".

  • Fun time tagging/signifying 45 min of silence

    Fun time tagging/signifying 45 minutes of silence from a recent shoot. I found I in the end placed lots of tags, with things like 'raising eyebrow'; 'slight stretch to the left'; 'rolling of the head'. Aiming for a 3 min edit, but perhaps I'll post the full version for paying members on my website, a new meditation app! This connects to the interest I have in witnessing subtle energy, as described in action by David Deida in the workshop in Ken Wilber's loft here (reproduced with permission from Integral Life).

  • Chris Marker and the film Sans Soleil - a generational reference in film making

    With might be seen as an oblique connection to the witnessing filming process, but pointing to a direction I am embarking on to evolve my work, Marker is an essential inspiration, ushering in the style of the non-linear film essay. Marker (1921 - 2012) was a French writer, photographer, documentary film director, multimedia artist and film essayist. His best known films are La Jetée (1962), A Grin Without a Cat (1977) and Sans Soleil (1983) - meditation on the nature of human memory, showing the inability to recall the context and nuances of memory, and how, as a result, the perception of personal and global histories is affected. Friend and collaborator Alain Resnais called him "the prototype of the twenty-first-century man."

    radical witnessing A new dimension in video filming dedicated to the arts and the creative experience. These are not interviews, portraits or biographies, but spontaneous glimpses of our souls filmed from silence and vulnerable presence... Interior Truth is the filming and editing service by John Oliver using an ultra minimalist approach, filmed from a place of silent witnessing (e.g. there are no "interview" type questions, or expectations on content outcomes). "I'm on a journey. Trying to make sense between soul and shadow. Getting out of my head. Seeing in new ways. Dropping into my heart. Feeling in new ways. Unlearning, to arrive at states of naked, fearful innocence. Fascinated by how our path to a greater collective consciousness might emerge from a radical witnessing of our intimate, interior truths." - John Oliver This "witnessing zone" integrates inspirations and training from the Inner View Method (nicaskew.com), Integral Theory (Wilber), Focusing (Gendlin) and Sensemaking (narratives). A recurring remark of participants at the end of the filming, is that even they are surprised as to which narratives arose in the moment, and that I, even as a stranger to them, have had the chance to get to know them like no other. Further details and video on my journey and purpose can be found here. video portraits Warning! ...Watch only when free from distractions and with headphones.

Testimonials Romain Langlois Moments for internal dialogue are rare. There is no cheating because the intimacy reveal's one's truth. The simple fact of John's presence helps finds the thread and coherence of one's invisible, personal mess. It reminds me of the alchemist, who purifies and purifies until you find your quintessence - one's trembling, smiling and strong substance that is only accessed in intimacy and confidence Nicola Powys I was not prepared at all for the depth of result...it takes somebody who is interested and cares about what you have to say, yet has a fresh perspective. I so appreciate this. It was like a lightbulb going on, to have my thoughts captured and curated through the editing. Fabulous experience, I'd recommend this to anyone. It's a gift. Vincent Dubourg Quote from the video portrait: I now understand the need for silence...silence isn't not doing anything, it's not saying anything. Yet from the silence the real is revealed, the reasoning and source behind our work. It is moments like this that touch our ultimate truths. Job Verpoorte The free form of interviewing allowed me to skip the obligatory interview questions and target other themes, opening ways to explore new trains of thought. I loved the post-production interaction when John showed himself extremely apt in adjusting the video to both our visions. A great experience and end result. Stoked!
