I can't believe it's been almost a year since my last entry.
Life has been a whirlwind. I graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in December with a Bachelor of Science degree in Digital Filmmaking and I've been working for a small local production company since. We've been doing a lot of work lately with Westinghouse and the University of Pittsburgh. On the side, I've been able to help shoot a music video for Punchline, which should be airing within the next few weeks. I've also been able to shoot a few local bands and help out with other projects, nothing too big though.
Photography has unfortunately taken a bit of a back seat because of my focus on video work, but I've been working on getting a 7D/5D mkII in our office to help with that. I've also been taking pictures on the set when I'm not shooting the video. Lately I just pulled out the old RAW files from my trip to England a few years back, and revisiting the images and applying techniques I've acquired and refined since I put those images away, so keep an eye out for those to be popping up soon (one already has!).
Also, I'm about to start working on some time-lapse videos since I just bought an intervalometer. I'll post pictures and links to the videos once I start (should be this weekend when I shoot, my battery is dead and my charger is hours away until then!). These will be of the stars, and hopefully I'll be able to catch the Milky Way too, so keep an eye out for that!
Recently I've also started rebuilding my website, so it will no longer be just a portfolio. It'll include a blog, videos, pictures, and lots of hidden links and easter eggs. You can view the site in its current state (under construction) at www.thekrismortensen.com There you'll find my current demo reel (new one soon!), latest pictures, as well as links to my Vimeo, Flickr, Twitter, & Facebook pages.
I hope everyone is doing well! Thanks for all the amazing support I was welcomed with upon my return! You guys are great!
Keep creating & find happiness in the little things in your life (take pictures of them and share!)!
Peace & Love
