THE HUSTLE // This picture was taken during our flight to NYC this past week with @jakeweislerfilms .
I shot a wedding video with @samuelhansenproductions the previous weekend and I needed to make my deadline, so I finished it during our 5-hour plane ride. Obviously, it would have been easier to take a nap since we were going off of zero hours of sleep, but sometimes you just have to push through the fatigue and let your creativity take the wheel.
I’m often asked what my end goal is as a video creator… and honestly, I couldn’t tell you. If anything, this career has helped me push myself to become a harder worker and propel me into the next venture.
If you want to be an entrepreneur, educating and investing in yourself as a content creator is probably one of the best ways to get started.
So long Sydney 🇦🇺 Love visiting everytime! What a blessing it was to revisit with my wife @veerahaapoja. Its been two years since we called this place home. We explored, we adventured, and we grew together as a newly married couple. So thankful that we were crazy enough to pick up our belongings, and move across the world, literally down under.
My entire childhood in one washing detergent box!!! All my #vinyl 33 ‘s and 45’s in perfect condition- how they survived I do not know. •
But when we moved 4 weeks ago my father came down to help and brought this box; he kept it in his car the entire time and I assumed he’d brought Turkish honey or helva and didn’t want it to be squished. •
So when he placed his old turntable on my table after the dust had settled and this box next to it I was confused...put the honey on the 45?! •
Then I opened it and saw: Tachaikovsky’s ballets conducted by H. von Karajan, Mozart Opus 40, conducted by the London symphony orchestra, Michael Jackson’s #bad original release and the original #Starwars soundtrack of all three movies... and the list goes on and on... •
Nothing is as chills-inducing as placing a record on a turntable and putting the needle on to that record... that tiniest of scratchy noises, the swishing of the record turning and the way it sounds when it begins... •
Today the kids went down memory lane with me. They got immersed in my #disneyclassics Radio play LP’s and my #disneysoundtracks. They were surprised to hear the music to German lyrics (which is what I had as a child since they only got released in German in the 70s and 80s). •
We have long forgotten to LISTEN! as much as I adore the movies and the Neigung if the moving talking picture today I remembered the yew joy I used to draw from LISTENING to stories and music from a turntable. •
Magic can be found in the most random moments. This, here, was pure enchantment. •
