I know I've been very distant from social media lately, but it's for good reason. today I spent a good portion of the day watching the most shocking/insane/controversial videos that I could find on the Internet. it puts you in a dark dark dark place that's hard to come out of. but has to be done for where I'm trying to take this second trailer. very soon I'll have details for you on when and where you can see #aDetroitFilm visual 2, along with a few other incredible developments. just have to try to keep sane in the meantime. thanks for riding with me.
the 2 year timeline thing on Facebook brought this up. 2 years ago today I bought a dslr camera for the low, because I thought of a scheme and had the help of a friend. this is the first photo I took with it. it's funny, I learned far far more than I ever could imagine to be at this point two years later. I think cameras and instruments and art supplies are more important than anything for your growth as a human, yet most people fail to see their importance. there's nothing more fulfilling than getting out your feelings or ideas through music or film or art. not to mention if you care enough you can eventually make things that people literally FEEL, plant ideas that will change lives. but it's not about everyone being a filmmaker photographer or musician, it's about being YOU and documenting how you feel, or getting out what you want to say. who knows, maybe it will be something people feel a very very long time from now, could live forever. cannot WAITTTTTT to get these ideas out and show you what has me in the darkest paradise for as long as I care to think back.
26 rotations of earth ago on this date I came into this world in Sinai grace hospital. many moons later im on the pacific coast surfing. we are conditioned to live our lives so scheduled and with an impending sense of some inevitable end that makes it impossible to truly live and take in everything, and live out our moments to the fullest extent. time isn't real, this world isn't real. love is. I've been in the darkest creative space since I put out that trailer dealing with a new industry that's a whole lot more cutthroat than the skateboarding world I'm used too. as we breeze up the pacific coast highway I think about how I know this is about to be the biggest year of my life thus far, and all the pressures that come with it. then I remember that it was 26 years of experiences that no one else had that molded me, 26 years of my heart going into everything I do, not them. I don't believe in this world, I've gotta escape. but I've gotta deliver.
today we hiked like 6 miles up the pacific coast. this photo is literally a moment for me, a real one haha. I spotted a whale in the water and got to see something rare and incredible. we watched this sunset with a whale in the distance while exploring aged coves. to be able to create to this level is unreal to me. I want to be able to comprehend vast things like the size of the ocean.
I'm leaving I'm gone I don't wanna miss the boat I don't wanna sit in coach I don't wanna sit in home I gotta get where I'm gone I'm afraid I'mma die before I get where I'm going I know I'mma be alone I know I'm out on my own I just gotta hit the road I just gotta know the road I just gotta hit a road I just gotta know the road I just gotta know the road
