Minutes and Moments

A minute will expire – A moment can live in your heart and mind for the rest of your life. Minutes are largely unremarkable and not necessarily memorable. A moment is an opportunity; a bracketed collection of intentional minutes. We can be slaves to the minutes… we need to master the moments. While it may be […]

11% Day

It has been said that we humans are using less than 10% of our brains. I was never much of a science-person so I have no idea how such a figure is even quantified… whatever. Stay with me… When I have a day off, I like to spend the morning by myself; I make a pot […]

Confessions of a Church Video Director – The Dumbest Thing I ever Said

Today I uttered what may have been the dumbest words I have ever strung together: I wish I had time to pray. What? This morning, I had time to: Shower and get ready for work. Make (and wait for) coffee. Stop by the bank on the way to the office. Set-up and light the studio […]

Sharing Your Stage

A few years ago while I was still working in the freelance video world, I had an opportunity to work on a show with the amazing Gregory Hines. While I’d love to regale you with the part of this story where I got to hang out backstage and talk about life and fatherhood with him […]

What ever happened to music videos?

OK… I grew up in the 80s… which means that when your favorite band came out with a new “album” (literally on vinyl, or cassette tape), it wasn’t official until you saw the accompanying video for the title song. Any talk of music had to include the question, “Yeah, but did you see the video?”. […]

Charleston Blizzard 2010

Everyone down here in the Low Country of South Carolina is freaking out tonight; it’s been snowing for a few hours! No big deal to many, but to us, it’s pretty cool!  

Making Time

“Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.” -Harvey MacKay I recently had about an hour to kill while I waited for my daughter to finish her shift where […]

First-time flyer?

Over the last 10 years or so, I have had to do a lot of flying… not as much as some, but well more than others. When it comes to airport security, I know the drill: get in line, have your boarding pass and ID ready… take off your shoes, no liquids, gels or aerosols […]

The Fun Theory

Maybe I’m jumping the gun by not putting a great deal of thought into this post… or maybe that’s exactly what I should do in this case! If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you are likely someone engaged in creative or technical work at a church… With that in mind, we all know […]

Screens and noises

This is a post where I’m calling myself out… and maybe there’s a reader or two that can relate as well. So much of what I do, professionally and personally, involves screens and noises. At work, I’m either shooting or editing video, various screens and noises required… at home, I love to watch movies and […]
