This week’s video is as much about this project as my first one. I’ve been in the middle of a busy two weeks. Maybe the busiest of my life. Between working a lot, packing and moving my life across town, filming for projects on the horizon (keep an eye out), and lots of other obligations, I’ve been feeling stretched in all sorts of different directions. But that’s ok, these are the moments that refine us. After getting home late last night from a work shoot, I wanted to give you guys a portrait of what most Thursday nights look for me; taking care of what I need to, and staying up really, really late to edit. It might not mean much to anybody, but it means something to me.
To catch you guys up, a 5×5 film is a simple video composed of five 5-second shots, using only natural sound. It’s an interesting way to put restrictions on the creative film process, which isn’t too far off from what I’m trying to do with this project.
