“When you started out,
You said you’d never look back.
But you had no idea then
That you’d end up here.
How could something so small
Come to this;
You started a time spark
That became a wildfire.”

“While I was cutting this reel, I new something was missing. It such a powerful score which matched the visuals, but I felt like it needed something more. It just felt like I was listening to my favourite a bands songs but the instrumental version… So I hit up my sister and told her I needed some poetry. I needed a voice over for my reel, it was the last peice. The only direction I gave her was to use the visuals ( Fire, eyes, water, or whatever it was ) and create a feeling that was inspiring and true to our story as filmmakers behind “Timelapse”. The last piece of advice I gave her was to not fear the feeling of vulnerability when creating this. I knew she would overthink the project because she was nervous of what I might think of it… but that would kill all creativy, and her ideas would be limited. I told her to write anything that she loved and felt right to her. The result… Being the artistic human that she is, literally 5 hours later I got this recording. The slate was “take two” and she nailed it.”
