If someone would like to do a different reading Ive included the text below.
The first time I had this dream it was a nightmare
Dark and terrifying, full of unseen danger.
As time went by and the dream stayed with me, the darkness receded
and I began to look forward to returning to the Eden that had become my dreams
The dream is the same that it has always been.
It is the dreamer that has changed.
*Im not sure why the footage is so noisy/bad after uploading it. Ive emailed support, maybe there is another export option I could try. It looks a lot better if you download. Ive unhidden it since it appears you can see it anyways. lol :)
So Sel asked if I could shoot this piece for her and here it is. We had originally intended to get some more footage outside but it started to rain but we adjusted and I actually really like the mood that the rain gives it in the second cut so stick around for that.
Also, its things like this that really make me appriciate this place. I wouldnt know so many great people had it not been for HitRecord, LizSmalls was supposed to come play with us today too but couldnt make it. And thats only 2 of the many Ive had the pleasure to meet ove the years. Makes me happy.
This isnt finished but sometimes you have to step away from a project so that you can come back to it with a fresh perspective (and patience), or in the case of hitRec, let someone else finish it for you. =o) This is the "How", perhaps one day I will get around to the "Why"

There has been a series of awesomeness regarding this record that I hope to do just a bit of justice to. MixedTapes wrote a very clever tiny story to which Jay-9 came along and drew a wonderful illustration that perfectly personafied it. Madisen then laid out of haunting and beautiful arrangement of the story. This chain of events is what I love about this damn place.
For some reason Miss Myah's clip keeps bugging out. I am too sleepy to figure it out tonight so Ill get on it tomorrow. (As well as resourcing.) Good night and happy new year guys.
Independence Day in New York City 2011. Watching the fireworks through the long barrel of a lens was a wholy different experiance than watching them as a casual observer. Trying to find focus in between brilliant flashes of light and the dark abyss of starless night.
This shot reminds me of something you would see through a telescope. Perhaps this is that moment just after the Big Bang. If you look closely maybe you can see the God Particle that scienctists are so eager to find.
If you want to see more of the photos I took last night I put some up here : http://fredwatford.zenfolio.com/p601406684/slideshow
This photo is one of several dozen as I was trying to capture the powerlines as we drove by at 75 mph. I love it out here and am not looking forward to returning to a city of concrete and glass.
I have a much larger version of this photo if needed, Im just on crappy internet. :)
