I’m doing something cool. I’m going to share the work and shorts I have shot for the last 15 years. I started learning how to shoot and edit in 1998 with my best friends Steed, Eric, Bacon, and Brad and many other close friends. We would shoot anything and everything just to learn the techniques about shooting a movie. We called it “ghetto gorilla” style shooting. Making it up as we shot, improving and just being us. We snuck into conventions dressed up all odd and walked around the strip in crazy outfits. (Now the strip is a freak show of characters asking for money) We were the first to do it out here but never asked for money.
I will be showing you the Aaron and Brad show, plus a ton of demos I shot for people and movie premieres. I would go and ask anyone that seemed like they needed a promo demo video if I could shoot for them for free and use the footage to promote my self and for them. I did so many free gigs but that was how I got known in the industry, then hired for work all the time.
I would edit in the day time, then I would work as a waiter at night. Then when I was off work we would go out and shoot all night skits until the sun came up. Sometimes I would get gigs in production, work it, then go be a waiter and edit at night. Never a dull moment in my life. I learned a lot this way, and also sneaking into UNLV film classes. When you have no money then u make your dreams come true on your own. That’s how I saw it.
I will be showing you everything along my journey to now. how it all started for me and how I got to where I am now by hard work. I took a big step in life on my own and It paid off. I hope this can help you see that you can do anything if u just try hard in life. Nothing is easy and nothing is free. Its only you that can make it happen. So sit back and watch all this throughout the next 6 months on http://www.youtube.com/agoodwincollections my personal youtube channel.
Thank you everyone and I hope you like the videos.
