Live - from the Middle East!

In April of 2009 I was contacted by the Alhurra Network about a piece on my bookbinding for their Almajalla show. Alhurra is an Arabic language T.V. station, funded by the U.S. Congress, that broadcasts to the Middle East. The all female crew descended upon my small basement studio and went into full production mode. It was amazing what they did in such a cramped space.

I am thrilled with the results. The how-to section is my personal favorite - watch me fast forward through the bookmaking process. I was particularly impressed with the Associate Producer of the piece, Nasreen Alkateeb. Her amazing artwork can be found on her website.

My part of the show starts at minute 13:00.

Hey Katie,
It was a pleasure filming you and I am glad you liked the How to section...your skills are so unique and just loved editing the piece altogether...I will be sending you the part with your interview

Thanks so much Corine. It was a fun shoot - I'd love the part just with my interview. You guys did such a great job!

I finally had some time to watch the video and it's wonderful! What an honor to be part of a news piece that is outside the indie niche market, too!

Thank you Meaghan. Yes, totally outside the Indie market. It was a fun process from start to finish.
