Our plucky author, often found herself with one knitting needle to hand, lying on the floor surrounded by leaves, teabags, stamps and an odd little clock. You never know what might come in handy if the Doctor shows up unexpectedly.
Hello, I’m Jamie – an erstwhile Performer & Creative Online Manager. With a love for the old and ultra new. “Digital Girl with an Analogue Heart” to borrow a phrase from London Artist, Del Riche.
I live with my boyfriend and our cat in Cabbagetown – a beautiful historic part of Toronto, right near the Riverdale Farm. I grew up in Canada, and lived in the UK for a good decade before recently settling back in North America a few years ago.
While in the UK I studied at the same Theatre School as Tom Baker and Gary Oldman which I think is pretty rad, though I have yet to finish (ok, even start) my Epic Doctor Who Scarf.
I adore Silent Films (as well as good film & docs in general), Theatre, Costuming, Sci-fi, Music, and have a slightly unhealthy obsession with collecting vinyl records.
Intertitles exists as a medium in which to share and write about these interests and other misadventures that happen on the way.
Also, I can at times turn into a no-neck-zombie-fangirl following around Shaun Pegg on set. But very, very rarely I promise.
An Intertitle “(also known as a title card) is a piece of filmed, printed text edited into the midst of (i.e. inter-) the photographed action at various points, generally to convey character dialogue (“dialogue intertitles”), or descriptive narrative material related to, but not necessarily covered by, the material photographed (“expository intertitles”).”
Ever since I was very young I’ve been fascinated and enchanted by Silent Films. The creative use of intertitles in film to advance a story or even to enhance the atmosphere and mood was not a limitation, but a fantastic cinematic device of the time, combining beautifully the printed word and moving image.
Comic books in this way as well, were (and still are) very near and dear to my heart, in story telling with images and print. In this manner one could say a blog makes use of an intertitle type format, using interspersed text and images to advance a story of sorts.
So, in a nutshell that’s why Intertitles.com
