In the past 14 months or so I have fallen in love with filming. Timelapse, filming, photography. It's been an immense creative outlet for me and an area of my creative life that has been very fulfilling. Having discovered my love for this in late 2011, my wife and I took a 5000 mile road trip around the country in March of 2012 and we took our 7D and GoPro along to document our experiences. That trip changed my life. I edited together this video and began sharing it with friends in mid April. And in early May I got up one morning to an email informing me that this video had been chosen to be on the Vimeo Staff's curated videos. I was shocked. I learned a huge lesson from this. Your best work, your most meaningful work, is the stuff you create that comes from the deepest part of you. It's the stuff you connect with and create out of the sheer love of creating something you find beautiful. And that's just one of the many lessons this trip around country taught me.
