No One Sees the World Quite Like You

It’s not about how great something looks but about the life breathed in to it.

When I was new at editing videos my only concern was to make it look cool, but when I viewed it, I knew something was missing. I was trying to make all my videos look like everyone elses. I later learned what made my work different was my perspective. You may see the sunset, but I see you watching it.

Since joining Instagram, I realized this more. I want people who follow me to have an experience of seeing the world through my eyes. At first I had no idea how to use this platform. Those I asked for advise told me I was over thinking it. I saw so many people using it for different things, famous people seem to use it to remind their fans they are alive and still good-looking. But for my little world of 100 people who follow me, I decided I wanted them to see the beauty in the small details of life. To remember its small moments that make the big moments.

When creating something new, I ask myself these questions…

-How do I want people to feel when they view my work?
-What do I want them to think about?

There should be a message behind every creative thing you do. Even annoying advertisements know their point.

So no matter if you’re creating a video, taking a photo or writing, keep in mind how powerful your view of the world is. Because no one see things quite like you.

  1. Hi! I was just wondering what exact software you use to make your videos get this kind of effect? I major in Graphic Design but I’m also interested in Film, and much of my inspiration comes from a lot of Hillsong United’s video and graphics. I need a couple tips to better my skill in both and was wondering if you have any? Thank you!

    1. To better your skills I recommend reading an After Effects (or the graphic program you are using) book that has tutorials. Once you understand your tools, you can create some really cool things. The best way is to keep trying out effects in your graphics program. Push your skill level. Hillsong United is great inspiration but they get inspired by media they’ve watched too. I know Joel loves surfing, and he would always come to us with an idea he saw on a surfing dvd. haha.
