Welcome to ‘Untitled: Stories of Creativity, Innovation, Success’.
‘Untitled’ will start off as a Web-only project to tell visual stories about people, individuals and groups who have done inspiring things in the fields of creativity and innovation. The core of our storytelling will be photo essays and short documentaries, supplemented with text and audio interviews as needed.
‘Untitled’ is currently pre-launch as we are in the throes of financing this project ourselves and setting up our systems and contacts. Self-financing is no small task, so if you wish to help us out in any way, please go to our Support this Project page to find out how.
After we finally compete self-financing and launch ‘Untitled’, the focus of our Stories section will initially be local but that will change to national then global over time as we gain readership and support.
Another important though secondary aspect of ‘Untitled’ is its coverage of creativity, innovation and success in hardware, software and methodologies for stills photography and moviemaking.
Like too many people still, I had to learn photography and videography the hard way, mostly by myself, without mentors or a decent school, through painful and often costly trial and error, with too much bad advice that often led to dead ends and wasted time and money.
Why name it ‘Untitled’?
Why give this project the insalubrious name of ‘Untitled’, you may ask.
Long story, save to say that a much bigger project, a magazine that I came up with some years ago, but did not have the naming rights to, was given a name I didn’t much like and that name someone else gave it was a constant source of confusion until the magazine’s untimely demise after more than a decade of creativity, innovation and success in Australia and around the world.
You can read more about that magazine and my motivations for conceiving and co-founding it in the About section.
