All throughout my student life it's been a constant annoyance that when I wanted an academic article sometimes I didn't have access to it for whatever reason: my school didn't have the rights to access an article or copyright laws prevent me from printing it.
I remember thinking, 'wouldn't it have been nice if the author would have put it on their blog or something for people to download, free?'
Well, I'm doing exactly that, now that I have an article published in an academic journal -- except, better! This is the unedited version with a transcript of the original interview (uncut, for your reading / academic pleasure).
And apologies it took me so long to do this -- I did the interview about 18months ago and then only heard that there were lots of delays publishing it.
Here is a link to the academic citation:
Danylkiw, A (2012) "A Conversation in Authorship, Engagement, and Interstitial Spaces: Matt Adams, Twenty Years of Blast Theory", Studies in Documentary Film, volume 6 issue 2 (June 2012), Intellect Ltd: London.
The interview was conducted on 25 November of 2012 at Café Brood just off London's Burough Market (inside, upstairs), sometime late afternoon or early evening. We spoke for about an hour.
If anyone's interested: it was cold and rainy and humid. The interview was supposed to have been conducted in Brighton, not London but at the last minute it turned out that Mr Adams was to be in London to inspect (if memory serves, and I expect it does) the Olympic grounds in Stratford because Blast Theory was going to run one of their programs during the Olympics (no idea if they did or not). (I used to be a journalist... mind for details) And this is probably more information than anyone needed.
