Needless to say, interviewing this many artists has a profound influence on my perspective of the arts and the creative process itself. I always feel honoured moving into an artist's space and when I do, I try to make my engagement a shared conversation as much as possible. I do however, in the final edit, cut myself out. Originally these interviews were made to entertain and inform the audiences of the annual awards nights just prior to the presentation of the recipients cheque. But over the years many of the artists have used their video-clips to promote their work or as part of their grant applications.
