The Evil Dead - Sam Raimi’s low budget camera rigs
this past week, i’ve been drawing a picture while i wait for the video i’m working on to finish rendering.
i haven’t put too much thought into them. i don’t think i’ve even spent more than 5 minutes on them. i just take a pen and jot down something that’s on my mind.
-a person’s head filled with cobwebs instead of a brain
-a hand drawing lips with the words #affection on top and #affliction on the bottom
-a filmstrip of a shark attacking an unsuspecting bird
then, i post them on instagram with various hashtags ( #drawings #doodles etc)
this one i drew tonight. it’s a portrait of a lady. this one… i put actual work into. found a picture of a lady and drew it as closely as i could to the original. i like it a lot.
I’m not sure if you heard, but recently I started a production company with my girlfriend (http://www.peffercornproductions.com/).
We’ve worked on a lot of videos for various clients so far, ranging from broadcast reels for college students, music videos for up and coming bands and commercials for any businesses looking for one.
A few months ago, my friend Tristan (below),
called me up and asked if we would be interested in shooting a promo for his music company (http://www.sussexmusichouse.com/).
How could I say no? (I mean, just look at that handsome devil)
He’s been nothing but gracious and generous to us in the past by letting us use a few songs for our short film "Dream Girl" and also composing music for a promo we did for The Waterfront Project a few months prior.
And now, two months and several countless hours later editing and tweaking and revising and honing and editing and tweaking and revising and…well you know…The day has finally arrived:
We hope you have as much fun watching it as we did making it.
Until next time…
i always thought i would die at a young age. which is ironic, considering how i used to live my life.
my name is kyle and i’m an alcoholic. it’s been exactly one year since my last drink. and i don’t miss it.
i miss it. sometimes.
looking back, it’s easy to forget why i did it. my inner self asking me why can’t i have just one? tempting me. it wouldn’t be that bad. but i know that’s just my addiction talking.
and i’m proud to say that after 365 days, it does get easier and those cravings come less often.
it’s the memories of why i stopped that linger longer.
like that time i went to frat party (when i was 27), didn’t eat dinner, drank like i was proving a point and ended up missing my flight home the next day (and work).
or the time that this happened after i drank at an all day tailgate for a concert i had no intention of seeing:
(note: everything turned out okay, don’t worry)
those are just two instances that weigh heavy on me any and every time i urge myself that only having one won’t hurt.
i’ve been thinking a lot about this day for the last 364 days and i can’t explain the feeling i’m feeling right now and it’s unlike anything i thought it would be like.
i look at that picture above and i feel sorry for that (guy) kyle, but at the same time, i can’t thank him enough.
this past year has been one of my most productive and most fulfilling:
i moved into a new apartment. i started dating a wonderful woman who supports me slash doesn’t put up with my whiny shit. we started a production company together (::ahem::) (http://www.peffercornproductions.com/)
i got to watch a short film i wrote, edited and acted in on the big screen with a real audience (not just friends and family) (although they were there as well). i also got to embarrass myself at a post-screening q&a!
i lost, like, 30 pounds (water weight)…and i started going to church again (not because somebody is making me, but because i legitimately want to go now)
sure, the year has had it’s ups and downs, but for every ‘up' i've been grateful & appreciative and learned something new about myself with every 'down.’
and even though my fear of dying young hasn’t quite diminished, at least i’ve eliminated one thing out of my life that could’ve made it happen had it continued…
now…who wants an o’doul’s?

Well, I think the title says it all.
It’s been more than half a year since I started this little “photo project/tumblr thing”and well, I don’t know. Short synopsis: finished my second roll of film in April. Just got it developed this past week. Even less pictures came out the second time. I haven’t learned anything except I’ve wasted my money.
Not that I’m fully giving up on the old school picture taking journey I started 7 months ago. I’m just done with my Holga. Not entirely in love with it or the shots its given me. Not loving the film either.
Anyway, who gives a shit. Here are the pictures:
Always a good sign when they have to print this along with your photos. Thanks Walgreens.
View from my bedroom late at night / early in the morning. Sure. Cool.
Not sure but I think this is the sunset from my bedroom as well. Not bad.
(this is the first time I’m looking at the pictures that were on my disk. they look kinda cool. the actual pictures not as much.)
I spoke too soon.
Sunset in Florida
Well, there you have it. We’ll see what the future brings.
Until then, enjoy my reposts of other people’s things
I couldn’t decide how I wanted it to be cropped.
