IT ALL STARTED WHEN…
Well there was not really a defining moment that pushed me into making films. Rather; it was a lot of smaller moments. I was making youtube videos with my lovely wife Ellen (yes the super talented Ellen of Ellen Ashton Photography) and at the same time I was consuming tons of creative content on youtube.
I was also super interested in doing drone work. I was lucky enough to be surprised with a drone and from the first flight it became apparent that something was building inside me. A passion of sorts. Ellen saw the footage; and although shaky and obviously done by an amateur, she was kind and encouraged me to pursue it.
So I did. I wasn’t sure what pursuing it would look like. How could I turn these desires that had been stirring and culminating inside of me into something that would serve others by capturing some of life’s best moments?
Film. It hit me. I wanted to film meaningful, beautiful, cinematic, narrative films! I just had to do it. I had been watching Ellen do photography and capture stunning images and realized she was telling a story through her photos and so why could I not do the same with video?
That was the last push that made me realize I had been given an opportunity and gift from the Lord and that I needed to pursue what He had given me.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to hear from you soon!
