a short film - summer flashback

i am sooooo excited.
i just finished a fun new project!

more and more i'm finding beautiful things.
moving things,
sparkling things,
things that just can't be properly captured in a single still frame.
over the summer i shot a few seconds of footage of those things.
now they are here
in full HD 
as a short film.

 each clip means something to me.
i shot this all across the state
while traveling,
at the farm,
at a friends house,
my backyard.
and when i watch this, i get those same feelings all over again.

this project has taken some time.
it's come to lots of halts along the way,
and it's still far from perfect.
but letting my creativity flow and just having fun...
i don't know, i may be onto something with this video stuff.

to summer 2014.
it was a grand one.
a grand one, indeed.

Enjoy :)

Very nice, is hard when one just can't capture something in a photo.

What a fantastic video and a job well done, Abigail! It was a pleasure watching your lovely video and getting a glimpse of your summer season and how you enjoyed it. I can imagine you must have had so much fun making this and that each time you watch it it will bring back memories of happy times. Wonderful.

This is a wonderful video, dear Abigail! Your pictures of wind turbines, fields, birds, bugs, leaves, ripening crops, skies, Daisy and other natural and man made wonders all come to life in this piece accompanied nicely by the banjo. It was delightful to see Daisy with her sniffer working overtime. Such a cute little creature! The only thing lacking were scenes that included you, dear friend. I hope you will make this a regular feature and let someone else hold the camera once in a while so that we can catch a glimpse of you... Abigail... poetry in motion.

I love videos like this! I had a friend who used to make little 30 second videos made up of snippets throughout her day very much like this and I always looked forward to them, they capture a mood so much better than a simple photograph can and provide such a lovely insight into someones world. And it's something you'll no doubt cherish in the years to come. Thank you for sharing it, I do hope you'll continue to make more!

Not only are you a great photographer, you are also an awesome videographer! Really, that was such a wonderful video, and very professional--it reminded me a lot of the introduction to a movie or documentary. You've clearly had a super fun summer, and I think it's terrific that you have something that allows you to relive the memory, in a way, rather than just read about it in a journal or look at it from pictures. Make more videos--it was a joy to watch!
