My Facebook anniversary notification (can't believe that shit is a thing now) reposted the live stream of today a year ago. I was in Barcelona with @caspianofficial at the beginning of shooting this film. It was also the last time I was on tour before this @defeaterband run. If you didn't get the chance to check out the film then hit the link in my bio on here (it's 10 minutes long). It was a film that myself and Phil Jamieson came up with around a fire pit in Beverly, MA, USA at @jacobikenobi's birthday. "What do we do next?" said Phil, and after a few minutes drinking more Trader Joe's Simpler Times I replied "we need to make a film, not a music video, a short film. Terrence Malick style. Wholly artistic. Showing a tour". Phil loved it and we got the label backing after the pitch and hit the road. After I asked Phil if he had any random sound recordings (something he does a lot on his travels), to which he sent me a Dropbox link full of stuff. One of the clips in there was a recording he's grabbed in his car one evening on a long drive; a random motivational speech on dealing with anger and frustration. Knowing that myself and Caspian often face a lot of those creatively, it felt right to use it. I could see it playing the the van and hear a car horn blasting out before just getting taken away from all the bullshit to somewhere peaceful. It so happened that was a field in the French alps we had been walking around in. There are a lot of hidden metaphors in the film I won't go into, but please give it a watch and heed those words at the start of your life is causing your frustration or anguish... "if there's a storm, let it rage; It will resolve into calm. The goal is not to love just the sunny days and hate the storm; it's to understand all weather is progress". Those words now play out through a PA when the guys play the song live, and I love that more than anything. I've had a chance again to give something back to some people who have inspired me for years. #filmmaking#caspian#shortfilm#castleshigh#director
In January 2017 @thenewrenaissancegentleman (P.J. Nichols Fleming) interviewed @louis_martins_photography_uk (Louis Martins) about his artistic career, influences, lineage, style and his future aspirations. The Conversation was released on Friday 10th March 2017.
"Our vanity, our passions, our spirit of imitation, our abstract intelligence, our habits have long been at work, and it is the task of art to undo this work of theirs, making us travel back in the direction from which we have come to the depths where what has really existed lies unknown within us."

There's no point being a filmmaker if you don't want to see sunrises. Every day we rise at 0430 at the latest and begin prepping for the day, then we capture the early light when the exposure is soft. It's cold, it's hard, but it's always worth it.
Allí estuvimos, mi primer año como director, segundo como actor. Encantado y enormemente feliz por la respuesta del público y todo lo que me llevo de mis compañeros y un grandísimo festival. Espero volver prontito. Mientras, a seguir rodando! #Tarazona#cine#festival#director
EXCLUSIVE!!! AY used to beg me to m.c my show.....@ubifranklintriplemg .
Moral of the story: don't look down at small beginings. It is the height of shallowness. Why would u downgrade people u did not create. You just can't afford to do that. Every body is a potentioanl billionaire or president whether u can see it or not. Its just like saying food wouldn't be sweet because you can't smell the spices.... Or a girl cannot give birth because she does not have male friends....hehe if that makes any sense....but never see urself as a more superior being because things are going well for you now....from @tonykroozofficial
