Daily and Vincent Shoot

This past Wednesday I had the privilege to work on my first Country music video here in Nashville! My good friend Julian Smith was directing and shooting this video and he asked me if I could come out and help. The cool part about this video was the we shot it in Northstar Studios in Nashville. The people over there are fantastic and were more than willing to help us out with whatever we needed.

I got to drive a big ole lift around and rig 2k's all over the ceiling which, I have to admit, I was a little nervous about seeing as this was my first serious rigging job I had done in almost a year. But it was a blast, everything came back to me and we got the sound stage lit up fairly quickly.

Here is Julian, sitting down on the job.

This was the lighting board that Julian and I sat down and figured out how to use just days prior to the shoot.

Over all I think the shoot went pretty well. I got to be everything from a lighting director to the dolly grip. Josh Lovell, Josh Taylor, Andy Merrick, and Chelsea Crawford also were big helps.

I am currently editing the video so here is a sweet little screenshot.

Brilliant idea.

God just blew my always

So tonight I was feeling a little down in the dumps and so I was praying a little half hearted prayer, but not really expecting God to do anything about it any time soon. Then I decided to start back up on my journey through the new testament in 40 days(now approaching day 70 something..and im in Luke).

Anyways, boom. Luke 18:1-8 " 1Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 2He said: "In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. 3And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, 'Grant me justice against my adversary.'

4"For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, 'Even though I don't fear God or care about men, 5yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won't eventually wear me out with her coming!' "

6And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. 7And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"

I don't usually do or talk about my personal spiritual life to the whole world(or the 3 people that read this occasionally), but I was just so encouraged by this that I had to share.

Keep praying, don't give up.

A 2 week review...with pictures.

So I haven't written a blog in a while. Mainly because I don't have time. So here is a brief picture blog of things that have been going on in my life...lets start with the most important:

So I get a letter in the it to see...PUUPPIIIEESSS!!!Then I open it and it is the cruelest joke ever...its a form to apply for a mortage...who does that?Then I went to the Invisible Children event called The Rescue.
It was a fun night...we got rescued by some representatives of some important politicians. Lame.
Chelsea and I attempted to sleep outside....I don't know what that girl was doing in this picture...maybe dancing?

Anyways...there was a drunk knife fight attempt in the same parking we left.
Then I went to the main street festival. It was hot. And crowded. And I ate a funnel Cake.
Then I went to 6am like usual..and played ultimate football as usual...

And got a grade 2 ankle sprain and tore some ligaments.
So...that was a quick update. Nothing exciting, nothing insightful, nothing profound. Doesn't mean that sort of thing isn't happening in my life, I just don't feel like writing right now.

The End.
