The Dark Side of the Lens

This is a beautiful short film.

“I see life in angles, in lines of perspective – the slow turn of a head, the blink of an eye, subtle glimpses of magic – other folk might pass by. Cameras help me translate, interpret and understand what I see. It’s a simple act that keeps me grinnin’. I never set out to become anything in particular, only to live creatively and push the scope of my experience for adventure and for passion. They still all mean something to me, same as most anyone with dreams.…Most folk don’t even know who we are, and what we do or how we do it, let alone what they pay us for it. I never want to take this for granted so I try to keep motivation simple, real, and positive. If I only scrape a living, at least it’s a living worth scraping…if there’s no future in it, is this a present worth remembering?  And though I may never be a rich man, if I live long enough I’ll certainly have a tale or two for the nephews, and I dig the thought of that.”
