Photographing The Little Things

This turned out to be my favorite video so far.  And, as per usual, I didn’t really plan ahead much.  I knew I wanted to shoot something about my mom, but I wasn’t sure what the story was going to be or how I was going to do it.

Fortunately, my mom is an interesting subject, and her interview touched upon both her story and storytelling itself.  I’ve always loved the idea that you can find a story in anything.  Any moment or object can have beauty and meaning.

I see now where I get this philosophy from.

How Game Mechanics Tell Stories

This past week I wanted to try my hand at something a little different.  I’ve recently become a huge fan of in-depth video game essays.

Like Mark Brown’s Game Maker’s Toolkit.

Or Cagey Videos.

Or [Game Array] (which is run by a friend of mine and I help fund because the videos are awesome).

My video is not nearly close to the quality of the those from the channels above.  Yet, I love storytelling and I love video games, so I figured I would give it a shot.
