A Spot of Keith: 5000 Faces
When Keith Johnstone was told by doctors he was going blind, he drew 5000 faces so he would, at least, have a sense of what people looked like. He didn't lose his sight, but he did finish the faces in 15 months. This excerpt is taken from footage shot for our ON KEITH docuseries. Keith and I discuss this amazing project and how the process relates to IMPRO. Click image to watch.
