When your passion or your art becomes your full-time job it can be great. It can also be dangerous, if not deadly, to your passion. Before I started working at Broadway Church, as their Creative Film Director, I spent several years working in insurance. Something completely unrelated to film. During this time I thought to myself “Wouldn’t it be great to be doing film full time?” Now, after creating videos for the Church for two years full-time it has begun to wear on me. No longer was I looking to create videos for myself, but I was being paid to make videos for someone else. This began to drain my passion of filmmaking. My work slowly became a job and no longer a creative outlet. I was finding it difficult to film work during the day and work on freelance projects in the evenings and on weekends. I was literally doing film work all the time. Although these jobs were all paying jobs I was no longer working on any of my personal projects. I began to realize how dangerous it is when your passion becomes a job. Fortunately, I have something completely unrelated to filmmaking that allows me to take a break...my old motorcycle. I’ve discovered that riding, even if it’s just once a week, gives me the opportunity to clear my mind. It allows me the freedom to walk away from a project and return to it with a new, fresh perspective. I realized how important it is to create some sort of separation between work and pleasure. Now don’t get me wrong - I love my job. I love filmmaking and feel blessed to call this ‘work’, however, in order to stay refreshed and refueled I need to create separation. For me, motorcycle riding is that separation. Here are a few behind the scenes photos from the shoot we did with my motorcycle. We were actually creating a 60 second, save-the-date for Karina and I's wedding.
