HowAboutWe…

HowAboutWe_02

It’s that time of year, where were we all desperately want 60 degree days and to see the color green again fill our parks… but alas, here we are, soon the snow will begin falling quietly outside. The mother of a friend taught me something new recently that I have been trying to live by since my recent transformation: “Make it fun”. We all get stuck in situations that are not ideal (like winter) and instead of being negative about it, find a way to make it fun!

A couple of weekends ago Kevin used HowAboutWe for Couples to turn these last few winter days into a fun memory of the season with a romantic snow-covered mountain horseback ride! I’m beside myself with excitement waiting for the next season of Game of Thrones to begin so it was quite fun being a couple hours outside the city in complete silence pretending I was Khaleesi. You know I love horseback riding…I love seeing the world from a slightly higher perspective, watching winter’s angular shadows dance by as if they were the ballerina legs of nature.

20 Questions

We got such a wonderful response to our original 20 Questions post that we’re continuing it into a series! Thank you again for your curiosity, your kindness, and most of all your support. Hope you enjoy this next round of questions and answers…

1. How did you get to where you are now in your career?
My path has come full circle from where I started. When I was 13 and got my first Mac I started creating digital art and animation, but through school I pursued traditional mediums of art, then graphic design which I did professionally for a few years. My real passion has always been animation so it’s not a surprise that I’m doing that as my career, but the path there wasn’t direct.
2. Where do you find inspiration?
I’m inspired when I see something that gives me a deep visceral feeling that I wished I had created it. I recently felt that with Starshift by Santiago and Mauricio. Inspiration comes in waves, but for me personally it’s not something I can just decide to go do, it happens when it happens and it may be from an art book or the dog eared corner of a subway ad blowing in the breeze. It’s also from free association. (Note: as I was writing this answer on our back patio a butterfly flew by and I caught it in a bell jar, and Jamie and I shot this.)
3. How has your life changed since the Cinemagraph?

Storyboarding Lincoln

Here at the studio, there’s a lot more that goes on than just the magic of capturing life through camera lenses. The meetings, creative brainstorming, contracts, preproduction, shooting, social media, and post production are stages we are constantly rotating through. This past weekend, we have been preparing for part one of a two day shoot with the latest model from The Lincoln Motor Company, being shown to the press for the first time today. I can’t say exactly what we are up to just yet, and since we usually tell the story of behind the scenes, I thought it would be cool to give you a little glimpse into the details that goes into the PRE-production, before the cameras begin to roll.

Typically on projects where we need to communicate visuals with a client, to tell them  how we see the images and story flowing in our heads, Kevin sketches out our ideas scene by scene, in this case, for storyboarding Lincoln. This allows for every moment to be accounted for, every scene to be looked at and studied for prop needs, lighting diagrams, and lens choice in order to achieve the desired effect. These storyboards also provide an organized shot list for the day because when you get going with a million moving pieces and crew it’s easy to forget some of the details you had previously envisioned.

Last year we told the story of Lincoln throughout time and this year we fast forward to modern day… and a whole new world.

As Time Goes By

It's still the same old story A fight for love and glory A case of do or die The world will always welcome lovers As time goes by...

High atop the Carlyle Hotel on Mahattan’s UES with sweeping views overlooking Central Park I married my creative partner and best friend Kevin Burg in an intimate ceremony on a perfect summer evening. The pianist filled the room with old jazz standards and so gracefully played As Time Goes By with our first kiss as husband and wife. The sounds of champagne popping and the sweet smell of summer flowers still fill my memory like it was yesterday…

The blessing:

Now you will feel no rain,
for each of you will be shelter for the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
for each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there will be no loneliness,
for each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two persons,
but there is only one life before you.
May beauty surround you both in the journey ahead
and through all the years.
May happiness be your companion,
and your days together be good and long upon the earth.
