One of my closest and dearest friends moved to Montréal a couple years back to focus on Modeling, fire-hooping and marine biology. No jokes. I’m very proud of him.
“Back to the Future”, an amazing series of photos by Irina Werning. People were invited to re-create their old photos. Very cool, matching colouring and lighting such as this would be incredibly time consuming, she has one marvelous eye.

I’m working on finding a personal balance with my material side. I’m aware that I shouldn’t let things like money and status dictate success. I know I shouldn’t like objects and things. It makes me feel better knowing that it would suck to loose my computers, my car, my clothes, my toys, but I know that’s about as far as it would go. I know they are only things, and I wouldn’t be losing any part of myself in them, but I still feel the urges of more. I may never be rid of this part of my psyche, but I’m working on living with a sense of harmony, and by being aware of it I can keep working towards bettering myself and removing it from me to the best of my ability. I must stop projecting on others and getting angry for their materialism.
To quote my dear friend Alison Paine, “Turn your judgment to curiosity.”
Right now I’m ‘poorer’ than I’ve been in a while, and I’ve never been happier. I’m also about to ride a wave of incredible success after many opportunities have presented themselves.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve worked hard to get where I am, I’ve also been extremely lucky, in the right places at right times, and the next few months/years are going to be the hardest I’ll have ever worked—and in comparison I’m pretty used to 12 & 13 hour days. They will challenge me emotionally, creatively and physically, but that’s what life is about. Challenges.
A message I recieved a few months back that I just came across again. I recieved it on a day that I wasn’t feeling 100%, and I saw that something so simple as another human being I’ve never met, writing to me about a feeling was so inspiring that it turned my mood around completely.
Every time I make a movie I’m hoping to convey a feeling or emotion that I get, something so intangible and abstract. I hope that even if they don’t feel the exact same one, that they at least feel something. I feel like I really succeded with this, and would like to thank everyone involved. Again.
Hello! I recently made a list of the top 25 albums that have defined who I am on my facebook page. M83, obviously, is on the list. I provided youtube links for each band so that people unfamiliar with the music could get their feet wet and sample new music. I actually used your video as the link for m83.
Someone that I went to high school with way back when messaged me on facebook saying that she liked my list and was enjoying getting new music introduced to her. She fell in love with M83’s “We Own the Sky”. All I did was provide a link for her to sample some music. The song…and especially you’re video…did the rest. She absolutely loved your video.
So…thanks for helping me introduce the genius of M83 with your very creative video.
