I've started working on a montage of disability-related video clips to put on the front page of the eventual "Disability Thinking" website. So far I have collected 46 clips of various lengths that I'll need to edit down to something like 5 minutes. Most of the clips are from TV shows and movies, with a few TED Talks and Paralympics clips thrown in. I'm not sure what I want the montage to say; I'm trusting that after sorting out the best bits, some kind of theme will occur to me. I'm just a little bit worried that after hours of work, the little movie will turn out trite or syrupy, instead of fresh and a bit funny.
With disability images ... both still and moving ... the line between awesome and ugh is very, very thin.
