Bieber on the bus

Sitting in the back of the bus on my way to an afternoon shift I didn’t notice the young high schooler sitting perpendicular to me. A latino man in his mid twenties, aspiring to have Tony Stark facial hair, pointed him out to me.
Hey people have probably told you before but you look like Justin Bieber.
Yeah They Have
(laughs) Thats crazy man.
Bieber looks predictably embarrassed.
(laughs) Its not funny it just tripped me out….Mind if I take a picture of you?
Gonna show my son. Tell him I met Justin Bieber.
You in high school? You go to the montessori?
How’d you get in?
The fan moves to a different seat across from Bieber to get a more straight on photo angle. He raises his Iphone.
He didn’t get quite the instagram he was hoping for.
Alright just one more! Thanks. Man they gotta be all over you at school huh! That school co-ed?
Whats you name?
Nice to meet you man. Patrick.
Patrick has a scrap of paper with notes on it. He pulls out a book to write something on the scrap. That book is Fifty Shades of Grey. (Side note: I’ve only witnessed men in their twenties reading this book on public transit.) He writes for a moment. He finishes and hands the paper to Jack.
You got Facebook right?
Hit me up dude.
Patrick heads off the bus. This kid looks kinda like bowl cut era Bieber. If he didn’t want to look like Bieber I think this kid could do it no problem. His grey nylon jacket with a popped collar and baggy khakis suggest he isn’t trying to shake the image. Maybe he figures, “Funny dudes who want to take pictures of me on the bus are par for the course if I’m trying to hangout with the sophomore babes at Montessori school.”
My first roll of medium format film I’ve shot. Took these with a Brownie Hawkeye. I promise they’re not instagram.
Photo’s from my visit to Omaha for the holidays. Getting back into the groove, film school in 7 days!
UUVVWWZ Video Premiere!
The new music video I co-directed with Teal Gardner and shot for UUVVWWZ premiered today at Spinner.com! The song is called “Open Sign” and is coming out on UUVVWWZ’s new album Trusted Language which you can pre-order from Saddle Creek Records here!
This was such a fun video to shoot and a big thank you goes out to everyone who came and got muddy for us! Check it out below!
Here are some photos from the set of the new UUVVWWZ video I shot this week! Can’t wait to show it to you all.
I switched shifts with a co-worker to catch the last screening of Samsara’s current run in Chicago. I didn’t think they would be able to top Baraka, but I was wrong. Ron Fricke has only further mastered the ability to create amazing and complex time lapses since the release of Baraka in 92’. This film more than anything made me want to get out of the theater and just go explore the world. So this is a rare case where I found it very powerful that the film made me want to leave the theater.
Do yourself a favor and get this when it comes out on Blu-Ray in Janurary. And watch Baraka if you haven’t already. Such beautiful work. I am still in awe a day later.
