reflections on a year of adventure films

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Last June, right around this time, Steele, Ali and I took a road trip back to Colorado. I impulsively decided to shoot video footage and compile a little video. The next month we went on our Europe trip and I made another small video. I really enjoyed having them and made the decision to continue making a monthly video for the rest of the year. And while they're not exactly adventures (Keeping with the "adventure" title was more for continuity) they still make me happy. Although we could argue that life is a big adventure. 

Some of the months are obviously shorter. There were definitely periods of time when I wasn't as inspired to shoot, but looking back I'm so glad I've got even a small video for each month. 

My goal for the future of this little project is to spend more time on putting together a coherent video. Instead of a video every month, I'm going to make one per season, but put more planning into it. I would love to shoot with a real camera (i.e., not my iPhone, which is what the past years videos have been shot with.) But that kind of hinges on getting funds to buy a new camera, or finding someone who will let me borrow theirs. 

It may be kind of strange that the year for these videos will start in June, but I think it's fitting. Summer is a season of change, of new inspirations. (And adventures!) So, below are all the videos from the past year laid out in one place. (Just incase you want to binge watch ;) And here's to a new year!
