In conjunction with Session, Recess commissions emerging writers to pursue the underlying theory and contemporary criticism that informs individual Session projects. We had the great pleasure of teaming up with Desi Gonzales, who has written a piece in conjunction with Eyes as Big as Plates.  Telling Stories from Stories can be read in full here. Thank you Desi for a fruitful exchange of ideas and to Recess for the great initiative.

Woody and the 500 year-old oak tree

Eyes as Big as Plates’ last day of shooting in New York (until next time!) was spent under a 500 year-old oak tree. Big thank yous to Woody for guiding us to the ancient trees of The Bronx and for being an impeccable log. Many thanks to Alison, Emily and Dan also, for joining in and helping out.
