Three years ago I mentored a photographer friend of mine in the art of filmmaking. He has “purchased” my time as part of an auction to raise money for Thirst Relief. Little did I know that three years later my filmmaking mentee would be a guest on my show sharing his filmmaking experience with my audience. That photographer was Shawn Reeder.
Shawn is somewhat of a Renaissance man. Photographer. Filmmaker. Musician. Poet. Mountain climber. I knew he “made it” as a filmmaker when his beautiful timelapse film “Yosemite: Range of Light” was blogged by Philip Bloom as “one of the most beautiful timelapses he’s ever seen.” Now, in just over three weeks, this personal project of Shawn’s has garnered over 1,000,000 views between Vimeo, YouTube and MSN (over 680,000 on Vimeo alone). Let’s find out how Shawn’s journey in filmmaking began, and where it’s going to take him. As we continue our series on the power of personal work.
