“Love what you do and the rest will fall into place.” “It’s not about the destination as much as it’s about the journey.”
Many things in life are easier said than done. I try to live by the two themes in my demo reels, above. Demo 1 is about finding what you love to do and doing it for the rest of your life. Demo 2 focuses on how it’s all about the adventure of the journey, not the destination. I have been making videos since I was very very young (fortunately those tapes are long gone!) but I’ve really had great opportunities making films & videos in these recent years. I try to update my demo reel every year as so much happens in that time. Demo 2 is the most recently completed reel and it includes only work that I directed, shot, and edited. Full shows can be found here – The DC, Fly Fishing, The Founders, Left Turn, 186 Miles to Ride,& StartUP.
If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there, does it really make a noise? Well of course it does but no one was there to film it, that’s all. I think documentation is extremely valuable & I love what I do. Along with many aspirations, I hope to someday edit a Wes Anderson film. So if you know him, please pass on the message.
I love hearing from everyone so feel free to take the survey below. I’m super excited to use SurveryGizmo, a company based out of Boulder, Colorado. There is at least one serious question in there, which demo reel do you like better?
