So, an experiment for Week 6. A 5x5 film is a simple video composed of five 5-second shots, using only natural sound. It’s under these constraints that I wanted to explore creating my first narrative, albeit abstract.
I have to admit, I’m a little nervous to share this with you guys. First, because it’s an abstract experiment and like the rest of you, I’m terrified of failure. And second, because I do a small amount of “acting” in this one. I really don’t want to be the subject of these videos, since I’m already the subject of this project, but I’m quickly finding out just how limited my resources are. Considering this weekly deadline, and how far my friends are willing to go to help me, I’ve found myself relying on what’s quickly available to finish these every Friday.
That being said, I will gladly take volunteers to step in front of the camera! Chances are you know how to get ahold of me, let’s chat.
I’ve been into the ideas of series within this project lately, so this weeks video begins another one. Wild Wood Journal is a portrait of the great outdoors and what happens there, and we start this thing out with the Lebanon Hills singletrack. Originally I had planned to simply highlight local Mtb trail systems around the Twin Cities, but I think this will prove a great excuse to camp, hike, and ride.
I want to create a couple different series within this project, and the first of those is called Stories Of. A very different style than what I’m used to, but I had a lot of fun with this.
This weeks video is also the first with an original score. Knocking ‘em out!
A few good friends recently put a ton of hard work and time into making a really great shop for coffee and waffles. I’m so proud of what these people have done, and having a top-tier coffee shop down the street isn’t half bad, either.
This is a story about the spontaneity of summer, the freedom of a bicycle, and being a fool with your friends.
My super awesome friend, and roommate, Brendan James Lauer is doing a REALLY cool project you guys! Go watch his first video I helped out in (and designed the 50 videos 50 weeks banners for).

Hey death, I’m a fucking mess. Can you stop this beating in my chest?
