My film debut..........


Wanda S. Hanson presents her quilts at Ciel Gallery from Zach Burkhart on Vimeo.

This is the video my grandson filmed and composed for me from my show in North Carolina in June.  He is very talented and does freelance filmmaking.

What an amazing exhibit!
Thank you for the tour.

Thank you Wanda! I loved seeing you explain all of your work to us. Since I have been following your blog for a long time I had already read everything you mentioned. But to hear it stated in your own voice was Wandaful! The video was fascinating and I wish it had been longer. You are an inspiration to us all!

Mary said...

Gene Black said...

That was so much fun to watch. I think you are a natural in front of a camera. It probably comes from your years of teaching quilters.
Are there any outtakes? That might be fun to see too.

Wanda,
It was so much fun to watch and hearing the stories behind them. Wonderful to see them all at once too!
Your grandson did a great job filming it.

Wonderful video, Wanda - your grandson is obviously a professional! As are you - you were so poised and of course your quilts are the best! Congratulations!

Sheila said...

Love to hear you talk about your beautiful quilts. Zach did a great job. I visited his blog earlier this summer. Very talented your man.
Your show in NC was great. Seeing your art, meeting you and your daughter, seeing her art and taking your color class was awesome.
Thank you for sharing.

NeverBored said...

I loved the video! It was like a personal tour with the artist of your gallery show. You are a natural in front of the camera. Next up, some teaching videos? Please!

Tina ~ Seaside Stitches said...

Fantastic video! I already knew you were prolific, but seeing all of your quilts in one space is fabulous and mind boggling!

Needled Mom said...

What fun! It was fabulous seeing the show in motion. He did a wonderful job on the filming.

Wow, Wanda, that is a fabulous video. It was great to see you, hear your voice, listen as you explained your design processes and see all of those wonderful quilts displayed together. Thank you for sharing the video with us.

You're a natural! That's a wonderful piece of your world. Well done; your grandson is obviously artistic like his grandma. PS Nice outfit, love your jewelry with it.

Marie said...

I so enjoyed your video and all of your quilts, make a person feel happy, they are so beautiful.

How do you amass your fabrics, how much yardage do you buy at once of a color? I also love Kaffe Fassett fabrics, he is a true artist, just like yourself.

Elaine M said...

I enjoyed watching your video so much. You and your grandson did a great job. Loved hearing about your design process and seeing your quilts again.

What I liked about the video is that you are you... not affected at all with that camera stuck in front of you. As for your grandson, I went to his website, watched and downloaded the piece "Southern Rain" It is amazing! Talent abounds!

Jane McCarthy said...

Wanda, this wonderful video is just a wonderful gift to your followers and affords us a unique insight into your techniques and thought processes. I think your talented grandson should send a copy of his video to Kaffe......he would surely be appreciate how well you incorporate his fabrics and style into many of your pieces. I'm would recognize a kindred spirit for sure!

Jane McCarthy said...

My face is red after re-reading my prior comment. Lesson learned: proofread!!

So my husband pulled up a chair and watched every second of your "film debut". He said, to tell you, that he was really impressed with your work and Zach's filming.

It was such a treat to see this film for us that wanted to go to your show in June, and could not.

Wanda, I love the video. Very professional. I really enjoyed seeing some of the work that I haven't seen on the blog. Thanks for sharing.

Sue Pittman said...

It was a pleasure to hear you describe your beautiful wall hangings. I feel as though I know you personally now. The showing in Ciel Gallery was stunning. (I also visited your grandson's web-site--and emailed the link to the Southern Rain Storm to my daughter who has lived in NYC for 12 years--she missed thunder terribly!)

Karen H said...

Thank you for posting the video. I really enjoyed it! You do beautiful work - the video really shows it off.

Loved seeing your quilts and hearing you talk about them. 53 years, that's a LOT of scraps!

How fun to see this video with so many of your quilties. It's nice to put a face and a voice with your posts.

And, girl, you are a firecracker, doing all these projects, one after another ! You put ME to shame.

Beautiful work. And tell the grandson that he did GOOD.

Yeah Wanda!! Now I know not only a great quilter, but a movie star too!! Way to go:)

Wonderful and insightful.

That was a wonderful video. It was thrilling to see all your quilts again and mug rugs. You did not sound nervous at all and you could feel the love you have for your work. What an inspiring show for all who were lucky enough to see it.

Trish said...

Just want to say how much I enjoyed viewing this video! I almost feel like I know you now! ;). While I have been reading your blog for years, I haven't seen many pictures of you, let alone hear you speak. It was great to hear you describe the beautiful pieces I was seeing...thanks for sharing!
