You ever dream up a personal project that you knew would be harder than anything you had ever done before? A project that would make you have to learn on so many levels, and put in countless hours solely because of your own internal commitment? A dream that will help you grow not only as an artist, but as a person?
That´s what "Welcome To The Outside" has been for me and the two others who gave so much of themselves for this project, Michael Schweitzer and Ashley Collins. Meeting Yosemite was probably the biggest pivotal moment I´ve ever experienced when I knew my life would never be the same. Yosemite has been a huge part of my life for the last 15 years, and I love to share its magic with others.
Michael´s music is featured in this musical short. When I dreamed up this idea I knew his music would really fit great, and with Yosemite playing a major part in changing his life as well, I knew he´d be perfect. Ashley loves to hike and be outside in the mountains, and gave so much wonderful heart and soul to this project. We couldn´t have done it without her. None of us had ever made a film before, so we jumped in and learned along the way.
I wanted to show the beauty and power of Yosemite and nature in a completely unique way. Join us for a visual and musical journey to one of the most beautiful places on earth, Yosemite National Park; where we immerse ourselves in nature´s magic through music, outdoor exploration, and connection. Enjoy!
