motion photography

The other day I was cruisin' the internet like I usually do while I pretend to pay attention in class and I ran across this young kid that is a filmmaker at South Carolina. The first video I watched was this—it actually left me speechless at my computer(well I couldn't talk anyways because I was in class) but I never have thought about doing any kind of film work. I've always been so interested in photography, music, and design. Filmmaking is a way to tie all three of those things together and really tell a story. Dylan Knight is his name and his work is so sick. Go here to check out some of his videos. I contacted him and asked where I should start and he gave me some great advice on where to begin. The coolest thing about technology today is that SLRs have the capability to shoot 1080p video and with a simple switch you can be back to your 18 mexapixel camera for stills. Watching his videos is definitely inspiring and I plan on trying to teach myself as much as I can here in the near future.

I still have no idea what I want to do when I graduate but lately I've been thinking about how exciting that actually is. You don't need to know everything and I certainly don't know what's going to happen but I'm excited to find out.
