Motion: A Sedona Roadtrip

Monday, April 23, 2012

I love making road trip videos.

(hit play then pause to make sure it loads all the way before watching :)

To be blatantly honest with you, I don't know what my future in motion is yet, but each time I make a road trip video -- it makes me feel alive.

Within the first 10 minutes of the climb we had reached a flat area that overlooked the mountains and I yelled out "wait!!" to Jose.  I asked him to walk ahead so I could get some photos of him.  But after a few frames he smirked and responded with "you know, this isn't a photoshoot."  Thank you very much Mr. Vidal.  But little did he realize I was also taking VIDEO.  Who's thanking me now? :)

I think one of the main reasons I love making road trip films is because I see them as mini movies of adventure.  I film and edit so that others can be a part of that adventure.  I know I've said this before, but that's why growing up I use to dream about working for Nike or Gatorade.  Their commercials made me feel alive -- like I went through that adventure with them.  Or that I wanted to run 10 miles with gatorade dripping down my temples and the perfect piece of music jolting me forward.  I know... so dramatic.  Story-of-my-life.

I hope my videos make some of you feel alive :)


  1. So fun! I love Sedona, but I've never been hiking there (surprising, since I also love hiking). Now I must!

    1. I can't recommend it enough!! I'm pretty much hooked now :)

  2. This made me smile! :-D What great trip! Your future in motion is very bright mi amiga! The more you DO the farther forward you will GO. The dramatic is abundance pouring out of the soul. If portraying that drama is your passion, and emotion, and verve running over...that's what it takes to move us out of ordinary and average (hence over-dramatic ad campaigns). Your drama here is huge positive energy - really, life! When you come alive inside, it overflows to your work, which spills over onto your audience. Thanks for sharing your life today!

    1. Thank you Seth :) I only hope to continue spilling this love out... because it truly takes over me!
