This timelapse is a compilation of shots taken over the span of 6 months. It's an ode to my development as a filmmaker in the past 3 1/2 years. It's a night and day comparison to just a few years ago when I barely knew how to work a camcorder. The collision part comes in December when I graduate. I do not know what is in store for me, but I'm confident that I will continue to do what I love best.

This is a tribute to those who believed in me even during tough times. To my friends and family, I cannot thank you for your moral and financial support. My dreams would not fully be realized without you.

Many months ago I told my friend and collaborator Luke Wieting that I would be doing a timelapse piece so he ambitiously composed a score to supplement the visuals. He his a masterfully talented composer and I'm glad to know him as a close friend and filmmaker. Featured in the music is Stephanie Young who makes the piece come alive with an emotionally charged violin performance.
