  3. My latest film is interactive, you control the music! vimeo.com/184323889


    A young man takes his first leap into what it means to wonder and philosophize, as he imaginatively renders his unique thought experiences in visual form. The film examines what it means to truly be; not only to merely exist, but to engage, reflect, and respond to the world around us.

    (In order to fully experience the film, I highly recommend reading the preface below)

    11/21 - Here's a 360° panorama of where I filmed the final scene: http://bit.ly/1uJyYfk

    9/17 - I'm currently working on Spanish subtitles, AND uploading the script so everyone can revisit as necessary! Also trying to get some behind the scenes goodies together for how I made the space footage or got a lot of these shots! Behind the scenes photos of the cross country journey are up! Check by the comments!

    9/25 - Wow. Life has been absolutely crazy, but I've been collecting all the BTS footage in hopes to cut together a little featurette showcasing our super fun road trip! Thanks again for the continued support!

    This film explores some major concepts, but two of them are simple: places and spaces. Places are merely physical locations, with often no meaning attached to them. However, a simple, empty room can be formed into a space; turned into a place of meeting, creativity, innovation, and community. Places are often beautiful, awe-inspiring, breathtaking, but they only become spaces when we engage with them. When we experience beauty, peace, or joy from a place, our reflections and responses to the place are what create an experience, as well as the emotions that we feel.

    Here's the problem, when we reflect during an experience, or bring pre-conceived notions to an experience, we arent truly experiencing. Reflection must exclusively follow experience.

    This film is about experiences of the mind. Places of the mind are merely thoughts, ideas, concepts. When we engage with the places of our own minds, we create spaces. Spaces to dream, to think, to create, to become. In this film, a young man engages with some big concepts for the very first time, and as an audience we get to see the spaces he creates and explores. And with that, we get to explore alongside him, and ask ourselves the very questions that he does.

    With that, please enjoy The Universe.
