Dreaming It{aly}

"I was asked to go to Basilicata, Italy to participate in a Digital Diary contest for the tourism board to show one of the most untouched parts of Italy... It was a rushed week, and I had to make two videos. I had two days to make this one, so I apologize about the little knicks here and there, hehe."

"It won the Grand Prize at the competition, and I am still in shock about the whole thing. It really was like a dream!"

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet

"PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting "creativity". The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites-- they just have to convince a judge that the site is 'dedicated to copyright infringement.'"

"The government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be considered illegal behavior according to this bill."

"According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill would cost us $47 million tax dollars a year — that's for a fix that won't work, disrupts the internet, stifles innovation, shuts out diverse voices, and censors the internet. This bill is bad for creativity and does not protect your rights."

A tribute to the people of Vejle, Denmark

"In the last few months I have been doing a project where I have been photographing random people in the sidewalks of my hometown Vejle."
"I have tried to portrait people in a natural way. Even though most of the portraits are posed, none of the persons in the photos or the film have been preparing for the shoots. So there have been very little time for them to think about how they look or which clothes they wear."

The Voyagers

"In the summer of 1977, NASA sent Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 on an epic journey into interstellar space. Each spacecraft carries a golden record album, a massive compilation of images and sounds embodying the best of Planet Earth. According to Carl Sagan, “[t]he spacecraft will be encountered and the record played only if there are advanced space-faring civilizations in interstellar space. But the launching of this bottle into the cosmic ocean says something very hopeful about life on this planet.” While working on the golden record, Sagan met and fell madly in love with his future wife Annie Druyan. The golden record became their love letter to humankind and to each other. In the summer of 2010, I began my own hopeful voyage into the unknown. This film is a love letter to my fellow traveler."

Light The Way

"This is the Lantern Floating Ceremony that I shot on Memorial Day of May 30th, 2011. This is an annual ceremony that happens every year on Memorial Day at Ala Moana Beach Park in Honolulu, Hawaii. It's a beautiful ceremony that brings people together from all over the world, from all types of religion, in one place to remember those that have fallen in conflict, and to reflect and send prayers to loved ones. It is a ceremony that is all about promoting peace. The ceremony is led by Her Holiness Keishu Shinso Ito who is the spiritual head of Shinnyo-en."
