A Short Essay
If a picture is worth a thousand words, just imagine what a video is worth! It’s thousands of photos combined into one! In my videos, I like to take simple ordinary things in life and put them on the screen. Things that we sometimes tend to take for granted, or things that simply go unnoticed because they’re “normal”, and showcase them. It could be nature, people, maybe a few toys on the shelf, or even just some empty roads. With a little creativity and imagination almost anything can work.
My favorite kinds of videos are the ones that have an extra emphasis on music. It can be a music video, or it could just be a video that has a great soundtrack. The music is really important as it helps complete the video. Great videography is nice, but combine it with great music and it has the ability to change people’s worldview, to give people new perspective – that’s what I aim for.
Videos that stir people’s feelings. Motion pictures that create passion in people. To make them laugh or make a tear roll down their cheek or put a smile on their face. Short films that people can say reminded them of a special event in their life. Movies that people can watch and say it really touched them, it lifted up their spirit even if only for a moment. And that’s the great thing – everyone can feel. Anyone from a child to a grandparent can watch a video. Age doesn’t matter. At the end of the day, that’s my hope for all my work, whether it’s a movie, or a photograph, or music – to create memories and emotions in people.
