I'm not usually one for inspirational quotes and self-help books, but I thought this stood out.
"Deep technical competency is overrated compared with the ability to make excellent decisions and to create a culture where forward motion is valued and personal initiative is rewarded." - Seth Godin

Yes, it's been a couple of months since I posted anything about anything. That doesn't mean my mind hasn't been racing with new projects and challenges.
I'm very excited to have integrated HD video into my work in a much bigger way. Of course, I can't show any of the final images or footage yet, but suffice to say I'm working on a very fun, larger scale project that's taken me to some interesting locations over the last month. I've been shooting both the stills and video, and basically applying the same visual aesthetic to both. Thanks to Kelly, Richard, Michelle, J-Bone, Kiet, and Bill, Chauncey, Troy, Nichole, Viv and Ingrid.
Also, I'm going to be shooting a short film next month while working with Eric Escobar of Kontent Films, in addition to some very talented actors.
Here's a quick mash-up of some b-roll, shot mostly by the irrepressible Kelly Koehler with the G9. I also have a lot of new personal work, which I hope to put up in bits and pieces when I can peel away from my currently inefficient editing and post-production operation.
