A Night at the Brooklyn Museum

We never know where our choices in life will take us. I feel this is especially true in the creative arts, especially because there are no set rules. We're constantly redefining paradigms of the generation before us, accelerating our output and collaborations through curated experiences and focused communities. I guess the only real rule is to keep practicing what we do with diligence and honest intentions.

This past weekend, Papa Machete, a short documentary film about Haitian machete fencing screened at the Brooklyn Museum for 1st Saturday. I am grateful to be the DP of this film. It was a labor of love for everyone involved. The audience posed some great questions and our director Jonathan David Kane and I appreciated the intellectual dialog. Thanks to Tenba Bags for the continued support and all of those individuals who have invested in our film.

10 years ago I first walked the halls of the Brooklyn Museum and I couldn't predict that I'd one day be part of an evening of art.

Looking back two years ago, I couldn't predict the film we planned quickly and shot expeditiously would have made it this far. 

Here's to our celebrating a collaborative work in a beautiful environment. Thank you. Now onto the next endeavor only to improve on what we've created thus far. Tomorrow there's no telling where we will stand.
