Reflecting on 2017

Looking back on how 2017 went, and what I want to accomplish in 2018.

A year is a nice amount of time. It’s long enough to accomplish significant things in one’s life, but it’s not too long as to forget the details of it all. I believe there’s value in reflecting on a project or period of time to see what worked, what didn’t, and what can be done better the next time around.

My Brother’s Wedding

The video I made and my favorite photos from my brother’s wedding in Maine in August 2017.

This past weekend my older brother got married on the coast of Maine. I took some photos and shot some video (which I edited together above). It was a beautiful weekend. It’s a rare and special thing for so much family and friends to come together.

Here are my favorite photos from the weekend:

Hanging in There Announcement & Stills

Details on my upcoming first short film.

I’ve been working on a short film titled Hanging in There. It’s my first fictional video project, so it’s a bit of an experiment. I began writing the script and planning the project in May, and I started shooting today.

Dylan, the main character, is unable to leave his apartment. But he’s getting by.

Hanging in There is all about restraints. I’m the only actor, and it takes place entirely within an apartment. Not having to deal with casting and locations seemed like a nice way to get familiar with the process of planning, shooting, and editing a short film.

I still have a handful of scenes left to shoot, but so far, so good. I’m aiming to have Hanging in There finished by the end of July.
