Uncertainty

Walking in a state of doubt can be toxic

Fears favorite assailant, uncertainty

Chest pains as grotesque thoughts of failure tip toe across our feeble minds

Death just seems so much easier than life

Living in a state of uncertainty

Curiosity peeks as small visions confirm our light

Although darkness is truly all we desire

Stomach tied in knots as we process every single moment of what could be

That does not have to be

Giving life to ill situations with our thoughts

Uncertainty has so much room to grow

Living in a state of uncertainty

Surrendering myself to the plan of my creator

But the poison still flows

Testing faith

Breaking down and diminishing any solid foundation

Ignorance can be more powerful than omniscience

Because knowing is just so much better than uncertainty

Living in a state of uncertainty

7am thoughts

I have no thoughts. Therefore I am just going to write. I am going to write until my dormant thoughts rise to the surface.  I am going to write until I feel something.
What do I want to feel?
I want to feel his warm hand gripping the nape of my neck while the other finds it’s way to that wonderful home lined in gold.
I want to feel the expansion of my lungs and the restriction of oxygen to my brain as I indulge in a blunt.
I want to feel all the confidence I lacked as a child.
I want to feel the spirit of every god I’ve managed to capture in time.
I want to feel the unconditional love a father has for his child.
I want to feel the shutter release every time I open my eyes.
I want to feel the world accept me for who I am and not who I am expected to be.
I want to feel excitement.
I want to whole
I want to feel complete

Now I just wish I knew what was missing…

 

Fake Socialite NYC ( Fifth Element ) Fall / Winter ’13

My first official video edit in collaboration with Rock Seymour for Fake Socialite NYC Fall/Winter ’13 lookbook. Let me know what you think guys!

Practice part 3

My third time out the gate with Final Cut Pro X.
Editing this footage took me much longer than I expected.

As I was editing I was reaching out to friends for feedback as well as referencing different video sources for inspiration and ideas. I quickly found myself frustrated with the lack of footage I had which I believe limited me on how much fun I could have in post processing.
After about a 2 week break an old friend of mine by the name of Rocko Seymour, videographer & director, asked me to work with him on a project. After only a month (honestly a few weeks) of practice you could imagine my shock.I asked him why, and to my dismay his reply was, “Its minimal yet effective some people edit in a hardcore way to make up for a lack of good shots and to keep the attention, but your work so far compliments all of the footage you had.”

In that instant I regained much of the confidence I had lost.

I realized that sometimes simplicity can be a great strength, and I was definitely going to use that to my advantage. I will not oversaturate my art in post processing to create “interesting” pieces. I will show you exactly what it is I see, in the cleanest and simplest form just as I do my imaging.

Gotta love visual arts.
