2011. Wow, another epic year to recap! I did lots of traveling this year, and lots of editing. A lot of things did not work out this year, maybe they were all waiting for 2012!!!! I’m looking forward to many projects finally being finished and released soon. Super grateful for all the support and inspiring people in my life. Thank you.
My narration recap, and a bunch of the photos I shot in 2011 are in the picturevideo above, but here’s a quick summary of some of the highlights from 2011:
December 2010 was intense dealing with dishonest people. In January, our film UYUNI won several more film festivals, and I went out to Sundance for a neat project Lance Weiler was doing called Pandemic, I also saw some great films, and met up with a bunch of friends. February, I went for an awesome photowalk with friends. In March, I headed out east to work with people on my doc, As The Dust Settles. I visited a ton of friends along the way, and also went to SXSW in Austin, where I saw a bunch of films, and met up with a bunch of friends.
I continued east, visiting Luna’s Living Kitchen, and shooting photos at Dayna’s Unschooling Conference. For the rest of April, I continued editing in Connecticut. In May, I did a bunch of editing in Nova Scotia. In June, I got to visit Red Fire Farm, and continued editing in Connecticut. In July, I went to NYC, and met up with a bunch of people and shot some great jumpshots. While on the east coast, I got to visit some awesome unschooling families.
In August, I headed back west finally, unsuccessful in getting the editing finished for the doc. On my way back, I was able to help on a short film in Quebec, and got to visit some great friends. In mid-August I went out to Burning Man again, and got to shoot for a couple great projects. In September, finally back in California, I headed down to San Diego to shoot Flo’s Unschooling Conference.
October, I drove out to Montreal for the start of another great project Lance was doing, called Robot Heart Stories. On the way out, I spent time to visit dear friends in TX, TN, NC, ME etc. I then did a crazy roadtrip back to LA with a robot. We arrived in LA near the end of October just in time for DIYDAYS LA. Since the beginning of November, I have been editing solid, every day, all day long, getting As The Dust Settles edited. Soon I will have a rough cut.
