Time to blow some dust off of this old blog of ours. Over the past few months both Matthew and I have been caught up in a whirlwind of work, and just as we like it, each job has brought something new to the table. Last month Matthew was commisioned by Christopher Kilkus photography to create an eclectic little short for Urban Planet's holiday launch. So step right up and enjoy a little bit of circus magic shot, directed, and edited by Mr. Denis himself.

When I stand at that spot, where the water meets the land, it's hard to describe what happens inside of me. It's there that I feel the smallest, yet somehow, in that humbled state, is the biggest sense of reassurance. The tides come in, the tides go out, all in this beautiful chereographed dance. Forever.
I grew up in Florida, with no shortage of sea, we would alternate between visits west to the Gulf of Mexico, and east to the Atlantic. I can't remember a single time that I didnt stand in that spot, that I mentioned before, and think about the people standing at their spot, across the water. Be it Mexico, Africa, and now that we are west coasters, Tokyo, Japan, it's a constant reminder that the world isn't as small as life sometimes makes it out to be.
"a home movie. part two." chronicles our time spent with close friends at that spot, where the water meets the land.
As a bonus, I thought it fitting to include a few of our personal favorites from a roll of film we had developed earlier this week. Enjoy.
My parents have a closet filled with old VHS tapes, each one chronicling some major event we experienced as children. To this day, one of my favorite things to do is sit down with a stack of tapes and relive those moments. One of my favorite videos, affectionally titled "Ma and Pa at the Beach", is a relic to my childhood days in Florida. I'm sure that as we spent that day in the sun, the camera was just an accesory to us all. We learned to ignore it's presence, and in turn got an entire day's worth of memories. As I'm older, that tape is all that I have left, my memories of that warm summer day have long since faded, my sisters and I are grown, and if it weren't for that camera, the laughs we had and songs we sang would be gone too.
The home movie project is a simple idea that Matthew came up with, one to keep us constantly documenting the things we do, for ourselves, and for our children. This project is personal, and we invite you to share our moments, our happenings, our history.
