july, july

july has started on a high note for me.

i went to austin for the fourth, to spend time with my brother, sister, mom, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, my niece, and all three of my nephews.  it was eventful, to say the least.

the kids aren’t always angels, but then again, neither are we adults.  regardless, i always leave full when i have the chance to hang with my family.

i am truly blessed.

so i made a quick film of our fourth to solidify the good memories we made…

up on a mountain

here’s a quick preview of a new film i’ve been working on called the mountain.  just like the other short films, it’s basically just moving versions of my landscape/ nature imagery, put to music…  i’m still very new to this.  i hope to grow and become more sophisticated in my attempts at filmmaking.  but if you like this kind of thing, please check out the film chronos.  it has provided great inspiration for me, and it is a fantastic example of how a film of this sort should look.

these particular clips were shot in telluride this past week.  however, the rest of the film is shot in locations all over the world.  locations include (or will include) big bend, wyoming, california, spain, lebanon, kenya, ethiopia, and hopefully many more.

i don’t plan to have the mountain finished anytime before the winter of 2010, but i’ll continue to release little previews like this one.  let me know what you think…

thanks so much for watching!
