Thanks so much to everyone who watch the INK film and left a comment! It was great for me to read through them, and I had to laugh at a few of them 🙂 But many of you also left very thoughtful and meaningful comments about how handwriting and writing can be such a wonderful thing.
It was very exciting to see that so many of you know the importance of handwriting – but of course no surprise 😉
A bottle of Noodler’s Black, Noodler’s Raven Black and a DVD copy of the feature film SNOW will be in the mail! Please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org within three days.
Tanja has a brief cameo in it 🙂
When I first approached Tanja Tiziana about filming this short doc, neither of us had any idea what the end result would be, and we really had no idea that it would end up resonating with literally tens of thousands of people (30,000+ plays and counting!). It means the world to us that our little film actually made an impact in the lives of so many, even if only for a few minutes.
While we don’t have plans for something feature-length, there is more to Ink than the 7 minute doc itself. On the official page, www.ryancouldrey.com/ink there are four more videos featuring (mostly) unedited footage of Tanja speaking on different subjects. They’re bonus clips, and as they’re unedited you might hear her drop an f-bomb or two.
We’re also planning to shoot a quick follow up where Tanja shows us her writing instruments of choice. If you follow my Vimeo account (www.vimeo.com/ryancouldrey) you’ll be able to watch it as soon as it’s posted. Following us on twitter (@RyTron and @TanjaTiziana) is another way to keep tabs on that.
Thanks again to Liz and Jon and the Wonderpens community for watching and sharing our film.
PS. Many inquired about the nib Tanja was using in the close up when it got caught in the paper – it was a Hunt Imperial O.
