In April of 2014 I started studying Wing Tsun Kung Fu, which has been my saving grace in life. Perhaps another late night I'll post about that. Anyhow, I was searching all over for a job, career opportunity, a way out, whatever I want to call it. I needed a change and I was looking at every single possibility I came across. I even spent three days going through the entire world's craiglist.org postings. Disgusting fact, globally what humans want to make most is porn.
Byron Au Yong for the Frye Art Museum, and the other was for Jherek Bischoff, Paul Kikuchi, and Jordan Swenson. When I got home from shooting with Jherek at an ice cave, I went searching for that "way out" again. This time, I found one.
Before I knew it I was on a plane headed out for a two day interview and I couldn't remember the last time I felt this excited about something. What blew me away the most that I couldn't yet believe was that these people flying me out for an interview to consider me for this position said that they liked my work and style of how I shoot and edit. For me, if that was true I knew this could work because I could be comfortable working day to day and not get burned out on something I didn't like doing.
Here I am, in a few hours I'll wake up and go to an office where there is lots of tools at my disposal for creating awesome projects, including a dji drone, ronin, nice glass, lights, a red dragon, and they even let me re-design a photo/video studio the way I wanted it! It's nice to be a part of a team who believes in me and supports me with out making me feel like it's breaking their own back in the process.
