Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do and all the aspects of it. I love sports. sports are the one thing that I am constantly watching no matter what time of the year it is. Music is another passion of mine that thrives by the day. I love filming concerts because you are right there in the action.
One day, I would want to one day progress into television and film. I grew up watching shows like American Idol, Modern Family, and Gilligan’s Island and I wanted to be apart of them. I would watch movies like Jurassic Park, The Dark Knight, and National Treasure and all I can think about is being apart of something special. I want to be apart of something that people will be remember 10 years down the road. I want people to watch the film/show I worked on and get them inspired as I was by others.
Whether it is sports, music, television, and film, I will always be apart of something special in my eyes.
I know we all have dreams. Dreams to become president, become an astronaut, or even becoming a celebrity. Dreams aren;t something you take lightly. Just because they are dreams doesn’t mean they can’t come true. You can’t let people tell you differently or let yourself tell you differently more importantly.
Look at me for instance, never would I have thought for a second I would be doing what I am doing. I know I don’t have the most self confidence like most people do. I second guess myself al the time and can’t make a decision to save my life.
It took a teacher to see something in me to finally believe I can actually do this. I can actually conquer my dreams and make it my reality. I also have a great support system in my friends and family. They would never let me be down even for a minute.
I mean look at this, I am filming pit for the Alabama concert. 2 years ago I never would have thought I’d be doing what I am doing. It is amazing what a little self confidence can do for a person.
For some people, music is something that you listen to as a hobby. Music to me is something much more than a hobby. Music is a lifestyle to me. Music is something that helps me get through the day. it helps me out in the good, the bad, and the ugly. It is something that can turn my day around in an instant.
This is one reason why I am involved with music. Music truly makes me happy. Music doesn’t judge you. Music is my life. At the amphitheater I am doing more than an image on a screen. I am trying to visually out together an image that goes along with the music. I want people to see what I see when I listen to music. I want to visually paint a picture of music for people.
Another part of my internship was that through the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater.
One of my professors runs the AV department for the Amphitheater. He was also my MultiCam teacher as well. He asked me if I would like to come out and help film the last 3 concerts of the season. I was really skeptical at first, I didn’t think I was really good enough to do it. I thought if he did ask me, that means he believes in my craft enough to put me out there and help him out.
I could not say no to this opportunity and I’m glad I didn’t.
More to come.
