Last year, I came up with a bunch of resolutions. I wanted to watch more films, read more books and eat vegetarian. This year, my resolutions move away from my personal life and more towards my work life.
My goals this year are to promote and have more photoshoots with my company Je Photographe. At the end of 2015, I began to transition away from digital photography and more into analog. Film captures a spirit that I haven’t seen in digital photography. As a result, I am hoping to share more film pictures on my Society6 account. I am already working hard to launch a new line of products from my Norway and Sweden trip from December 2015.
Finally, I want to focus on my school related projects and try to create as many films and scripts as I can in the next year. In February, I am shooting a short music video inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I have yet to finish casting, or secure an actual film camera. However, the film that we will be shooting on is kindly being donated by a professor. We are hoping to create the film in a one take. We will only have three tries to get it right, but have an entire week to create the piece physically. My other big goal for the year is to finish a short screenplay I have been working on for the past year and a half. I’d be ecstatic if it were to get commissioned as a grad film. However, I’m a ways from that!
I’m going to push myself as hard as I can and I can focus on relaxing when I visit Spain in July. I’m looking forward to exploring a new country and I’m excited to take some new film pictures!
So here’s to a very productive 2016!
