Jason Goldwatch Asks Artists To Interview Themselves On 'Time Alone' [Trailer]
Jason Goldwatch is a videographer/photographer/molder of culture. His work can be seen through the droves of videos he’s shot and help to produce; most notably for artists like The Roots, Jay Electronica, Action Bronson, Kid Cudi, 88 Keys, Common, Dilated Peoples and most recently Schoolboy Q. With such a vast portfolio of visual taste-making and ear-flipping, Goldwatch has decided to point his lens in a different direction, attempting to redefine the journalistic process and platform. In a new online series entitled Time Alone, Goldwatch will pit artists like Bun B, Del The Funky Homosapien and Michael Rapaport against their most vehement critics; themselves of course. Since the concept itself is a bit complicated, perhaps it would be better if the show’s host explained it himself:
“Basically, the idea is to get questions out of an interview subject that only they would know about, and/or would have the gall to ask themselves. I draw out these far-left questions – mostly from them with magic and motive – then we flip chairs. I then ask them their own answers, which were the previous questions. I know, I know, but the questions they ask themselves they answer back, thereby interviewing themselves as no one ever could.”
So in a sense, he tricks his guests into asking –and in turn answering– questions that only they could possibly have insight on. Confused? We are too. However, if there is one thing that is certain, it’s that there has never been a platform like the one Goldwatch is embarking upon. Time Alone premieres tomorrow and will drop a new installment every Thursday, so keep it locked as we’ll have plenty more from Jason Goldwatch’s and his unconventional journalistic endeavor soon. Watch the trailer for Time Alone below.
