Hello world. I feel like I’ve been locked up in my room for days on end editing my life away! I’ve been lucky enough to continuously jump from one project to the next. Over the past 10 months or so I’ve edited over 60 videos including MMA/boxing interviews, mini-documentaries on cycling, music artists, and experimenting with personal projects as well. Below is a quick video I edited to share on Instagram for “Throwback Thursday” this week. The video is a 15 second highlight video of one of my best friends bachelor party in South Lake Tahoe earlier this year.
When I first began video editing it started with creating videos of my friends around 15 years ago. Early on as a filmmaker I was influenced by Tom Green, Candid Camera, CKY and Jackass. As the years went on as I learned new techniques I tried to recreate the visual effects I saw on TV. I feel like I’ve come full circle at this time because my computer currently crashed so my editing will slow down just a tad at this time. It just so happens the last video I created for fun is of my friends and I and now reflecting back on my years as a filmmaker I can see this is where it all began. Thanks to my friends I’ve gained experience, and continue to have fun as a filmmaker with each project I take on.

It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve made a blog post so I thought I should write a little somethin’. Whenever I get the chance (usually between projects) I create experimental videos to play with ideas, and continue to grow as a filmmaker. Below are a few clips I created specifically for Instagram because you’re only allowed to post 15 seconds videos. My goal was to come up with something creative, and entertaining within the limitations of the application.
