FREE, IN YOUR BODY
There are many paths to personal fulfillment in a person’s life. Halfway into my lifetime, creating films has grown to become my own. With it comes a sense of purpose and belonging. Finding the path to the greatest appreciation of each moment, and attempting to convey that feeling back to an audience is something akin to magic. Remaining present when experiencing beauty but still capturing it to share with others, and represent that feeling through film.
With this latest project, I chose to shoot it entirely on analog film. Forcing a new sense of attentiveness to our decisions, and acceptance of failure for each roll of film. Shooting on film forces myself and friends to learn lessons outside of only the mechanics of the camera. With that came a sense of freedom for creativity in what we shot. Allowing me to point the camera at what felt important to myself, not only what I thought people would want to see on screen at the end of the year. With that created something of a personal journal entry; about my closest moments with friends and family throughout the winter. Taking time to just do something and get out of it, and feel Free, in your body.
