Diary of a Rock Balancer ::
I’m happy to present the newest (8th) edition to my annual short film series, featuring a compilation of my favorite video captures throughout 2019.
This year I focused more on documenting all aspects of each creation, including creation, different angles throughout each creation’s life, as well the collapse. One of the challenges this year was narrowing down the footage to use that worked harmoniously with the whole. I simply had too much content to easily choose. So i included things that made FEEL the most alongside the chosen music. Part I (after the intro credits) is a kind of comprehensive mashup of different elements, followed by Part II, which focuses on the creative process via timelapse, followed by Part III which features much of my gimbal camera work, with a track that I fell in love with over the recent year.
Something else that heavily influenced the vision and feel of this cut for me was a recent reading of two books by Carlos Castaneda, entitled “Journey to Ixtlan”, and “The Active Side of Infinity”. . . which served to focus my awareness on a resonant dimension of my journey through the last decade of my balance art, and this broader practice of integrating with the Nature as a creative way of life. It’s not my belief that Gravity Glue happened by chance. There is too much magick threaded through the whole experience to be mere chance. It is, and continues to be the “Intent of Infinity” . . .
