Last month I was inspired by my amazing friend Hailey from You Can’t be Serious to take on the 30 Days of Filming Project. Essentially it involved filming something that makes me happy every day for 30 days. I’ve been wanting to learn more about film making, and this came along at the very perfect time! I took my camera with me everywhere, and I’ll tell you something for nothing. Its hard. When I uploaded the first few days I felt quite nauseous watching my jagged shaky footage, thinking perhaps I had been filming on a boat! Did I have wine for breakfast and forget? I mean, how hard could it possibly be to keep a camera steady!! I do it every day with stills for goodness sake!! And don’t even get me started on the editing! I have a whole new found respect for people that do this everyday, provide the world with the beautiful and amazing videos we watch everyday on youtube and vimeo and they make it look easy.
Anyway. I loved this experience so much. And I’ll put my hand on my heart and say I’m hooked. I can’t WAIT to explore more and spend time getting better and more creative.
But for now, here is my very first little film. Its only 2 minutes long (baby steps people), but go ahead and have a look! Tell me what you think!
Its all about the things that make me happy.
