— Here's a little story —
It's from the heart and it's in glorious IMAX 3D Dolby web font format.
As a child, Mr. creative and Mr. tech geek reared their colorful little heads and got their claws deep into me, i.e. legos, computers and a video camera. Oh, and drums too but that's another story. Battling between being who I really was — a young man who created with passion and drive (we'll call him Jim), and an idea of who the world at large wanted me to be (we'll call him John) — I tried being both but alas, inexperience stated there could only be one. So naturally that one was Jim — all heart and no head. The other? Well, he scurried away with his head and no heart attitude to a distant land living off the sea and coconuts only to return years later and stir things up again...but in a good way this time. Really, you ask yourself? Well, read on to find out more.
In the early 2000s, I learned Directing, Editing, Shooting and Writing. John (remember how he would come back) saw an opportunity and seized it. Now was his chance! He puckered up, wiped the snot of his face, stood tall and joined the human race again. Believe it or not, he moved in next door to Jim. Yup, there was vacancy. Much to the neighborhood's surprise, Jim welcomed John with open arms and together, they agreed to be the best neighbors they could be. Today they harmoniously co-inhabit the domain that is Daniel's mind. The left and right. The yin and yang. The peanut butter and jam. Together, they and you can tell your story.
