In an attempt to combat our own tendencies, we’ve instituted a practice of zooming in andzooming out. We use this language to guide our perception of our work, a framework to step into when we slip into reactionary moments and days. The task of zooming in happens when one or both of us turn on our blinders to the outside world and dives deeply into the details of a particular project or relationship. For Dan this happens most often in the editing bay, or on set with a project. For me, I zoom in when I’m writing a paper for school, or in a meeting with a client. In contrast, sometimes we need to zoom out. Zooming out happens when it’s best for one or both of us to take a bird’s eye view on a situation.
