The Dreams We Live

For the last couple of weeks I have worked on a film shoot that gave me the chance to travel all over Utah from Moab, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, Park City, and several other places.


From this commercial shoot, like all film shoots ironically, I was reminded how much I really love what I'm doing... As I was sitting at Delicate Arches in Moab, waiting for the sun to rise so we could start filming... I thought to myself that I could have ended up with a 9-5 job, working in some cubical... but instead my office ended up being the world :) It really doesn't get much better then this :)















It has given me awesome opportunities to travel all around the world, from the Mayan pyramids, to filming in helicopters above the Hawaii volcanoes, to not only filming bobsleds, but also riding in them at 71 miles an hour, as is what happened last week :)

I really do love my job, I love working with the talented people I do, and learning from all of them. I love that it is a bunch of friends trying to make something for the rest of the world to see. It is exactly what I used to love doing as a kid, making movies with my friends, except for now the only thing that has changed is someone else is paying for it, :) and I get paid in the process as well, to do what I love! :)


In highschool, one of my favorite bands was called "The Starting Line". One  of their songs they sang was called "Given The Chance", it's about how they were living their dreams as singers/a band, for me, I feel the exact same way with the opprotunities I have been given with film. I love it.. And I can't see my self doing anything else... It's the only thing that makes sense.

Here's some of the lyrics from the song. It explains how I feel about film making perfectly :)

 The Starting Line "Given The Chance"

What can i say
that can explain
all this time
i'm loving life
theres not a day
that i can't say
all this time
i'm living out my dreams

the feeling is screaming out
the words of the things i think about
hearing them coming back
from the crowds mouth is perfect
and when the curtains close
i'll realize how fast time could go
thanks for everything
you know how much this means

what can i say
that can explain
all this time
i'm loving life
theres not a day
that i can't say
all this time
i'm living out my dream

what this is to me
is more than words could mean
i guess dreams do come true
this song itself is living proof
what this means to me
is more than it may seem
i guess dreams do come true
this song itself is living proof
what this is to me
is more than words could mean
i guess dreams do come true
this song itself is living proof

what can i say
that can explain
all this time
i'm loving life
theres not a day
that i can't say
all this time
i'm singing out
singing a song about
a dream that has come true 

Also, as a side note, here is the info on the Utah Tourism Commercial we did these last couple weeks...

Ad Agency: Struck
Production Company: Saint Cloud
Director: Julian Acosta
Line Producer: Jared Harris
Director of Photography: Travis Cline

The commercial was shot on the Redone, all on a steadicam or jib.

My role/position on the shoot was as B camera, and a grip.
