About Here Say:
Here Say gathers the country's top artists using speaking as performance for a series of creative roundtables and public performances in Metro Atlanta. From spoken word and storytelling to lectures and rap (and everything in between), Here Say invests in the development and cross pollination of this dynamic and democratic form--word and voice. To capture this three-day convening in the fall, AIR Serenbe commissions a local filmmaker to create an original short film about the meeting of the minds and mouths.
AIR Serenbe nurtures critical moments of imagination. Filmer brings to life the untapped creative energy of emerging and established Georgia filmmakers by pairing them with high caliber artists from all over the country. In this match up, filmmakers were commissioned to make an original short portrait film that illuminates something of the artist’s person and process. Air Serenbe gave the filmmakers full creative control over the films, paid them an honorarium, provided them with a residency, and honored them as the artists they are. At the end of the year, all Filmer films were presented to a live audience in a large theater in Atlanta. This year, Air Serenbe produced and premiered 16 new films by 14 filmmakers.
