Mountains, Dinosaurs, and Ice Cream | EGP Day 4

My personal favorite day of footage to work with. A spectacular hike, an unexpected friend, and some sweets.

The middle of the trip is a hike day! We made it to the top of the Tom Dick and Harry trail, which gave us a spectacular view. We also made a trip into the t...

Later this month, we'll be talking to these and other high school students about their national dialogue project: What Makes America Great (and Not Great).

Trump Supporters Spend a Day with a Muslim

This is the kind of video I want to make: very human and sometimes surprising all while remaining relevant.

Trump supporters spend a ‪#‎DayWithaMuslim‬ in a new social experimental series. Will it change their mind? Watch / Love / Share


I'd heard of racial biases impacting how we develop technology, but I didn't realize that there's a racist history in physical film itself.

Color film was designed for white people. Here's what it did to dark skin.

Forget It All

Attended the Portland Film Festival today! I saw Free Cece Documentary and got to meet the director in the morning and went to a screenwriting workshop in the evening. I'd highly recommend it!


Meeting with a local musician today to talk about the release of his music video shot at Alberta Abbey!

"Brave" - Greenscreen Practice

I thought it would be fun to share some of my older videos. This one was just a green screen exercise for class. I found out that people were still seeing it in their Media Arts classes.
What's amazing was that years later, I actually met the woman who sings this song, Sara Bareilles!

I had to practice with greenscreening techniques for my Media Arts class. Here is the finished product. I am NOT taking credit for the song.

Just finished editing and uploading a music video for a local Portland musican. I hope to upload it here to share with you all, with permission from the artist of course.

Rain Dove

I really admire Rain Dove.

PLEASE SHARE! This can save lives! DISCOVERY! HB2 IS NO LONGER VALID OR ENFORCEABLE! As of TODAY this minute- this very second that you read this the discriminatory "bathroom" part of the bill cant be upheld! Heres why North Carolina's HB2 Law is NOT VALID. (Also enjoy the funny video!)

In the state of North Carolina there is no statute that requires any individual to give their ID when confronted by police. This means you may (without any punishment) refuse to give your name, ID, annnnnd birth certificate to any law enforcement officer there and its your right to refuse.

The only circumstance that would allow for an officer to be able to take your birth certificate or ID force fully (whether you like it or not) would be if you are driving a vehicle or REASONABLY SUSPICIOUS of committing a crime.

In order to be reasonably suspicious of committing this crime- law enforcement officers must believe you are not the "RIGHT SEX" for the restroom you are in solely by looking at you. This is called PROFILING. In 2014 Eric Holder BANNED Racial, Religious, and Gender profiling in the United States for Federal Officers as a technique to determine "potential guilt". Its called "Gender" Profiling and not "Sex" Profiling because Sex refers to your sexual organs and/or birth certificate status. Gender refers to "the state of being" aka your energy, aesthetics, clothing, voice, hair style- the you that is you you.

"Gender Profiling" was banned because it was deemed just as inaccurate as Racially profiling citizens for "Hispanic Looking" individuals to look for "Illegal immigrants". its also as ina accurate as Religiously profiling "Middle Eastern Looking" individuals at teh airport to assume that that are Muslim and and further assume that they will blow up a plane. You can

The fact is- there is no LEGAL definition of what a persona with "female" on their birth certificate looks like. Or to dumb it down and I say this with a grain of salt my PC friends- theres no legal definition of what a "Woman" looks like. Or a "Man". Or a human really. Theres no wrong way to "look" like one.

Sure there may be a common aesthetic handed out to us by mainstream movies and advertisements that tell us what an "attractive" person of a sex looks like. But thats not reality. Reality is DIVERSITY.

Shucks but wait theres got to be a way to tell! Nope...A person with "Female" on their birth certificate may look like:

BREASTS (varying in size and shape) or NO BREASTS (people who have had bilateral mastectomies with choice not to reconstruct such as breast cancer survivors, transgender individuals, and individuals who have experienced certain illnesses.)

LONG HAIR (oh hey there) SHORT (I know shocking as it might be this has been a thing where the entire human race has had varying lengths of hair all over the world for different reasons. Hold onto your knickers.)

"LESS MUSCLE TONE" annnnd "RIPPED MUSCLE TONE LIKE YOU WOLDNT BELIEVE" (Its called being an athelete people!)

NO FACIAL HAIR (silky smooth) annnd FACIAL HAIR (It is not uncommon for any human to have facial hair and many humans who have "Female" on their birth certificate may have facial hair from simply body hormones including full beards which are glorious. Trans gender individuals may also have facial hair if they have begun hormone therapy but have not had their birth certificate status changed.)

AVERAGE AND SHORT oh and also TALL (Im 6'2 yo! Studies suggest the human race overall is growing taller every generation- so this little size diversity thing is going to continue to be on the menu.)

CLOTHING- Im not even going to address this. We both know its 2016 and a dress is just as appropriate as a pair of baggy jeans and a collared shirt. Same with MAKEUP uh its for all humans and on top of that many humans dont wear makeup and do just fine.

NO SEXUAL STARES (because only "men would prey on women) ... SEXUAL STARES (do you know how many ladies have given another lady "the eye" in the restroom? Attraction is real people. I cant say I havent checked a lady out while Im in there a time or two.

VAGINA (Id like to see how you can just see someones vagina randomly without them pulling their pants down- which an officer cant do legally- but lets pretend they flashed you by accident) they could still be "Female" on their birth certificate if they have a PENIS. (There are individuals born with "ambiguous genitalia" who may be labeled "female" on their birth certificate. Ther are individuals who are intersex. There are trans individuals who have undergone "bottom surgery" and may have an amazing 8 incher just hanging about and being pretty- yet their birth certificate has not been changed or they dont intend on changing it and its attributed to being part of their body.)

Because of this diversity in expression and the fact that there is no legal definition of what a birth certificate stated "FEMALE" LOOKS like (or a MALE) there can be no "REASONABLE" SUSPICION that anyone is MALE or FEMALE on their birth certificate.

Without REASONABLE SUSPICION as it states in the FOURTH AMENDMENT on our Constitution (Which North Carolina must adhere to since they have no state Statute on mandatory relinquishing of your license or ID upon request) "The right of the people to be secure in their persons,houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and
seizures, shall not be violated; and no Warrants shall issue but
upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and
particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons


Thank you Forefathers.

(I want to credit the legal team and the tons of individuals who worked with me literally 24/7 on this project and helped to discover this fact and make this video. Together as of TODAY this bill is no longer enforceable. And ANY person who is violated under the "bathroom portion" of the law should sue the CRAP out of the state or city. Im a peaceful person but PROTECT YOURSELVES. Take this note into the bathroom and read it to an officer. KNOW YOUR FOURTH AMMENDMENT RIGHTS and PROTECT YOURSELF.)


(from my personal account)
Dear Zimfest friends,
Some of you might have noticed that I spent the past few days running (or longboarding) around WOU, documenting Zimfest 2016.
I'm not entirely sure what shape the final video will take, but I want to thank everyone who made it possible for me to begin shooting what I hope will be my first of many documentaries. Shoutout to everyone who agreed to be interviewed about the festival!
And I know that this Zimfest felt like it ended too soon, as it does every year. I know that there are many more of you who wanted to appear in the film, but our schedules didn't align.
If you have any interest in seeing the final film or steps in the editing process, I encourage you to like the page I just made for my projects: Ricky King Productions. Have a great two years, and see you next time!

Soul Resonance the Movie

Looks like this movie about Zimbabwean music included Zimfest. I should watch this!

There is a special joy within the high energy, poly-rhythmic music of Zimbabwe that resonates within the souls of many. From its introduction in Seattle in t...
