Michael's 1st Independent Film Project | Love Everlasting


I've always wanted to create or be part of making movies. Earlier this year I made contact with Director Rob Diamond who specializes in making independent films. After a short conversation, he offered to mentor me in the process of creating quality independent films on a budget. Here are the details of that film which is currently under production. For clarification, I am not the Director of the film, Rob is and he is also mentoring me on the process by giving me a hands on opportunity as a Producer.

2nd Day of shooting is wrapped


2nd Day of shooting is wrapped~ We finished ahead of schedule today. I cannot describe how much fun we are having as a crew. It's like playing make believe as kids only with really nice toys and a lot more planning. One of the most common questions I'm asked by my friends is about @luckybsmith acting abilities, and I can assure you, he has a very long and successful film career ahead of him if he so chooses. I think most viewers are going to be shocked how talented he is considering this is his first film and he is mostly being coached by Rob on set, which is a huge credit to both of them. #loveeverlastingmovie @loveeverlastingmovie

RESTLESS: A Beautiful Timelapse of the Pacific Northwest by Andrew Studer


RESTLESS from Andrew Studer on Vimeo.

"Restless" explores the Pacific Northwest's dramatic and diverse locations through the art of timelapse. I decided to name the film what it is not only for the dynamic change a timelapse video is able to display, but also because of how it affected my lifestyle. Working on this film, I became 'restless.' I spent just about every weekend and even school days backpacking, camping and exploring some of the most incredible places the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

Shot in a little over two years, countless all nighters, camping trips and spontaneous trips to the mountains and an estimated 85,000 photos were put into to this film to make it what it is.

I began filming just after I graduated high school and completed it shortly after deciding to leave college and devote myself to working full time as a freelance photographer/videographer. I know for a fact that working on this helped me see where my true passions lied and was key in giving me to confidence to enter full time into the freelance world.

Eustress is Positive Stress


Eustress is Positive Stress ~ makes you feel good and excited. Rob is absolutely handson, nonstop. He also interviewed this afternoon for about 2 hours on top of everything else we had to do. Tonight we helped set up 3 trailers with a forth on the way for the cast and crew. I think he feeds off of the energy and excitement building because he doesn't appear to be getting tired. Must be eustress @loveeverlastingmovie #loveeverlastingmovie

Shopping with Director Rob Diamond for some of the craft services (food and snacks) for all of our extras coming on set next week (there is going to be a bunch) His sister Julie is in charge of preparing it, but Rob is very hands on every single aspect when he can. I thought it was interesting that there is a difference between catering for the crew meals, and "crafty". #loveeverlastingmovie @loveeverlastingmovie
