When I first started imagining a video for my Indiegogo campaign to promote The Female Buddha book a good friend suggested I work with Bill Woolery, an accomplished editor of film trailers. Lucky for me he had switched to making trailers for documentaries after many years working commercial films in Hollywood. Some of them quite well known!
I sent him most of the photos from my book and he immediately began seeing a nature theme and used most of my work from Japan, where gardens were the best place to get a stunning shot of the Bodhisattva, Kwannon or Guanyin as she is known in China.
For me, nature has a feminine quality, a place where you are inspired and have to yield to her whims. In Japan, a temple is always surrounded by the beauty of the natural world. In the garden is where Kwannon always resides, to welcome you and offer you peace of mind.
I feel very blessed to have Bill’s creative mix of images to show you here. Please take the time to watch the trailer and if you are inspired buy a book or contact Bill to make your own video. I learned a lot from what he chose to use to tie the piece together and feel very blessed to have a nature loving man on my team.
