Web Site

Ok so I finally redid my website again to make it a little more profesh! So i awhile back I got all crazy with the flash website and basically tried to make a really cool website only to find that people hated it and were confused and just wanted something simple. So i tore it down threw up some crappy splash page that didnt even have contact info and basically forgot about it for over a year. So i had some down time this morning and and basically started over. I just used basic HTML rather than flash and then added links to view my videos. Just really basic but thats what i have found people want. So it's mainly there for my contact info! But there are also links to my blog and facebook so anything people want to know about me they can get from these sites. So anyways besides that, i have several jobs i'm working on right now, one for the southern nevada heath district, shooting and editing commercials, and then some random stuff here and there. Mainly editing videos for websites. Today i'm shooting a short in SLC with my sister dave and kyle. I'm excited i hope it turns out well.

Life moving on.

so, ok its been a long time since i updated my blog, first off i've probably spent more time in slc then i have in vegas lately, but im sick of vegas, i hate all the jobs i have there they are al boring and i feel like creatively they don't really get me anywhere. So the whole beginning of this year i wanted to move to LA so bad but lately i have just enjoyed SLC and the people up hear and all the projects i've been working on. one of them was for a band and the footage looked really good but the light temperatures where all off so i made it really experimental.

so thats that, also im working on some commercials for a security company that i will posts links to when they are finalized, and also another music video in the works for mister drew barlow. Lets see also i've been in salt lake helping rebecca with another film she wrote.

Where does Americas wealth really come from?

(Warning: I didn't really structure this paragraph I just kinda went off an a tangent so hopefully it makes sense.)

So i was working a job all day today that didn't really require much thought from me so my mind started to wander. I was thinking about gas prices and how misleading they will be to the american people. What i was thinking about was the current situation economically. Maybe my thoughts are being heavily influenced by tocquville's "democracy in america," but i was think about what got us in to it and what will get us out. Looking back on the history of our country and why people came over here, is very different from reasons why say spain came over to the americas. It is a great comparison of what makes us great. When spain came over they only cared about one thing. Gold, or in other words power. The were one of the most powerful nations in the world. However they invested poorly. Americans new that real wealth does not come from how much gold or riches but from freedom of thought. After all that gold spain never became a super power. It was Thomas Jefferson who took John lockes original life, liberty, and pursuit of property and changed it to life liberty and pursuit of happiness. I think personally he changed property because he knew that mans happiness comes from gaining more knowledge rather than by having the most stuff. In recent years we look at the economy that grew during the 90's. One of the largest economic expansions in the u.s. since the industrial age. We had the internet boom. The internet which basically allowed a broader exchange of ideas. Now Knowledge has become more instant. Its not surprising the current economic crisis is based on property. Anyways i'm not trying to say that its bad to own property, i'm just saying that as americans we need to get away from the trend we've been in of trying to acquire wealth through getting lots of stuff and using oil to power our economy. We need to use our brains more and be a beacon to the world of free thought and technology so while china is poor from running out of oil we will still be a great nation because we Will have developed knew technologies to sell to the world. After all its our abilities to think and reason which is what has made us great.

So whenever i'm not working on some boring work video I always round up any friend that I can and say "hey let's make a movie" So when i was in school took a class on rhetoric, and in the course of the lesson the teacher who was from arkansas, and of course loved Bill Clinton, brought up a man named Dale Bumpers. Dale Bumpers was the senator who was the head of defense in the clinton impeachment trial. Now i tell you all this because when my friend and I heard his name we couldn't get over how hilarious his name was. So of course we started making movies about a guy named Dale Bumpers. In the movies everyone always calls him by his full name and over and over. It just became the running gag. Anyways here is the latest one we made.
