Then VS. Now - Comparing my first 'movie', and today's reel.

I'm a 25 year old that's done a dab of everything creative- but film/movies was my first love. 2017 is a year of getting back to that. I've spent the past few years in advertising/marketing which has unfortunately been more design work and less video work. Excited to see where this year goes. Just wanted to share the comparison. :)

I'd love to see old vs. new work from everyone else. I think it's always encouraging to look back.

Not the first (most of those are still on tape) but either way...going on 10 years. Cringe worthy :)

To make the contrast even greater: a trailer of my first videoproject in 2000 (shot on webcam!):
I put it in a slow video with some BTS pictures:

(I love sharing this, not because it is great but because it is really bad. Hopefully that will encourage people to start and don't be discouraged by less tha perfect first efforts :-) )
