1. I think it was in the time of spring 2012, when I came across David Shiyang Liu's lovely piece of work about Ira Glass. It was the most inspiring and motivating video I had ever seen in my life. I watched it over and over again, listened to Ira Glass' voice, and told myself, that I am not the only person who is constantly disappointed about the gap between one's taste and one's skills. Later in 2012, I decided to do my own filmed version of Ira's interview - using my own language to tell his message. It took me about a year from concept to upload.

    I made it for myself and for anybody who is in doubt about his/her creative career. I also think that Ira Glass' message isn't only limited to the creative industry. It can be applied to everyone who starts out in a new environment and is willing to improve.

    THANK YOU
    Ira Glass, whom I've never met in real life, but who had such a big influence on my development. Thank you for telling beginners what nobody else does.

  4. This is a short film/music video I made in support of an instrumental album I'm working on called "The Revealing". The joint is called "Believe". I made this at a time when I needed to believe in myself and find my inner strength.I'm sure a lot of you have been down that road... So it was a trip when I heard this sample and my frame of mind during that moment: It just lined up. Like it was delivered to me... What came out in the process, and the "feel of the beat"-It was a perfect translation... anyway, sorry for the sob story...I love makin beats.
    Made with my Hv20 and Imovie. please enjoy:)

    update: Thanks everyone for the words. for all the folks lookin for the track it's now on Itunes! peep the blog for a description of the project Beat Freaks.
