My first thrill was animation. I loved to draw on rainy mornings but learning how to move those drawings amplified everything exponentially. Animation brought me many awards growing up. There was a serenity of focus that I probably still don’t get from any other medium of expression. It’s forging time and space.
Animation led me to live action which is far more collaborative. Subsequently, when you’re looking to keep the cupboard full of scooby snacks you do more than narrative. Hence, event, documentary, etc. shooting become part of your tool set.
Typing these thoughts on my phone between driving is disruptive as all hell.
It’s interesting how the different arenas of videography overlap but still offer distinctions that can make or break a shoot. The flow of communication remains consistent and I continually work on directing the subject to get the most out of them that I can. I know where I was going with this post but I’ll leave that for another time.
