My final goal of the year was to work on or a direct a video project. I was given the opportunity to do so for Thanks For The Invite Portland! check out the recap video above.
This is my favorite festival I've ever been to. Such good vibes, people, and music. Met some of my favorite artists including Wave Racer, Snakehips, and got to interview and kick it with Stwo. Bought a glide cam 24 hrs before the festival and barely figured it out an hour before I got in the car to leave. Pretty happy with the end results and I'm already brewing ideas for the next festival.
This show hit close to home for me. For any of you that know me, I had a tough time dealing with my mom's sickness a little over a year ago. During that low time in my life I distracted myself with my favorite thing, music. I started listening to Soulection Radio everyday and in between songs, Joe Kay, one of the co-founders of Soulection who also doubles as a visionary tastemaker, preaches good vibes and doing what you love. I've really stuck to that since my mom got better and really believe that everything will fall into place. So far it has, and sharing that story with Joe Kay was a special moment for me.
Also, Esta is one of my favorite artists ever so kicking it with him was awesome, he even opened my beer for me haha. IAMNOBODI is cool as hell too, hopefully be seeing him this summer when he's back in the area and try to set-up a photoshoot or an interview for EYES+EDGE.
This was the first project i've ever been in complete control of for EYES+EDGE. I chose the artist, worked the connections, wrote the questions, filmed and edited all of it. I'm proud of the final product and look forward to next month's projects (which will be even bigger!). Big things happening in 2015.
