"Keeping engagement is sometimes intuitive and borne out of mutual enthusiasm for the topic at hand. Just as often, it has to be fostered, conjured, cranked up and earned. Dragged uphill. Patched and inflated. Practically speaking, for me it means asking and not telling. Following, not leading, and then pushing from the back wheel, letting the handlebars steer. Whether its experimental animation, conventional editing, Media Studies, Film History, or Documentary, we may start with the training wheels on, but as soon they are obsolete they go. When we are sure how the gears and brakes work, I let go of the frame and we can ride off together."
