A few months ago YouTube sent me a big black box. I REALLY wanted to open it but decided to wait until I could find someplace special. On Monday I heard that Joshua Tree National Park was open so on Tuesday I returned to the place where we shot the first two episodes of BlackBoxTV.
I share this moment to celebrate and honor all of the artists that have collaborated with me over the years and helped me keep this little dream of mine alive. A dream I’ve had since I was a child in a house with broken windows, no TV and hundreds of books.
To those who make up the million, who followed me as I learned how to be a filmmaker, a prankster, a writer, a producer, a director, a dad THANK YOU. In the last few years I’ve populated BlackBoxTV with dozens of #vr short films and AGAIN you’ve been willing to follow me as I chase that mad hare down the rabbit hole of inspiration.
The greatest gift I’ve been given in this life is the ability to be wrong. To look past my own hang ups and insecurities and see on the horizon something impossible and beautiful waiting for me.
