2016 Video Reel


DATE: MAY 2017


I've gotten in the habit of subtitling my annual video reels with the phrase, "What life looked like in (insert year)." These reels aren't necessarily an all-inclusive refresh every year, presenting the best-of-the-best footage from my entire archive; they're more of a visual reporter's notebook from the previous calendar year.

Sometime in the spring I start combing through the collection of clips that I've captured during the past year, pick a song, and stitch together a montage of "shiny things" — compositions I thought were aesthetically pleasing, people and faces and interactions I found compelling or funny or touching ... and, ok, yes, there's usually a handful of football clips too.

Video reels from 2015, 2014 and 2013 are available on Vimeo.
