What I love about being in video production is, the scene is always changing, as are the stories we tell, as well as the opportunity of having so many different views to tell it from. Recently I have had the chance to do extensive filming in the beautiful island of Kauai HI. Here is one of my favorite images of the infamous Na Pali coastline taken on a rare clear day!
Okay back to the normal life in a week video production schedule. Today we are heading up to the U of U to shoot a segment for the Kathy Ireland Business to Business show. Friday I have the privilege and very rare opportunity to film the day in the life of a beautiful 2 ½-year-old girl, who was oxygen deprived at birth and as a result, has severe brain damage that has drastically changed the path of her and her parent’s lives. At this tender young age when most toddlers are talking, learning to run and out exploring this big world, this young girl doesn’t talk, she uses a walker to help with her with her balance, and the common things all developing children do with ease naturally that we simply just take for granted, she struggles with. Being in such an intimate space with a family you have never met is so fulfilling! Some may not have the stomach to film a hard day of struggle full of emotion, I am looking forward to it, you see, the reason we are creating this video is to show it in a malpractice lawsuit, making a captivating video that relates the everyday struggle this family now goes through is what this is about!
The amazing thing about producing videos is, they have the power to tell stories and convey visually, information that simply cannot be put into words in such a dramatic compact presentation. I LOVE shooting, directing, and producing videos and I love having the small windows of opportunity to meet real people in real life doing what they do! I have always had a hard time trying to figure out what I am supposed to do when I grow up, as I look back over the last 35 years, I have been, done, and tried many different careers, Professional BMXer, Insurance Salesman, Retail Manager, but at the end of it all, I now know who I am, and I know what I love to do! Direct, produce and shoot compelling videos that make a difference!
