Ian is the amazing artist behind this video (link). It was the world’s biggest wet plate camera out of a van. I am sure you remember that just by the description.
He now has a new video, perhaps my all time favorite for many reasons. First of all, he actually wrote to us personally to let us know it came out. He remembered the last time we featured his video and I thought that was great of him to do so.
I had no idea what to expect except for the title itself.
This past year in 2012, I was invited to be a part of the Framed Network as one of their features. I really had a great time and in end I realized something. Even if I didn’t get the opportunity to be on video, it would have still been worthwhile. The reason for this is that I met this amazing group of people that inspired me to a point where I still think about them often and keep pushing because of how they’ve inspired me. I could list everyone but it would be quite a list! I learned so much about life, passionate, dreams, perseverance, and more. They each had a special quality about them that you just knew was special. It had the ‘stuff’ that successful and genuine people were made of. And seeing talent like that come together and make something happen is a beautiful thing that every artist needs to see.
I got to see the trials and tribulations on what it takes to create such a polished show and the chaos that ensues to make it happen.
One of the producers who holds it all together is Ben Peterson. Ian features him and his amazing family in the video. He’s a great guy and I felt that Ian did a great job documenting him and the other stories in the film. I felt a personal connection as I got to meet Ben and his beautiful family.
It really is a piece that illustrates how beautiful life is no matter how imperfect it can be at times.
Enjoy this piece! And be sure to also check Ian’s other videos.
