I am the proud mother of a future movie director. My son Chris, has been making videos since he was 10 or 11. Neither Mike or I have any idea how to make movies, so this is all Chris, he just decided to figure it out on his own one day. His latest one is posted on a new youtube account that he created the day he turned 13. He and his buddies worked on the shots for this one throughout this summer and fall. He posted it on December 18th, and has over 13,000 views so far. Pretty impressive, eh? All the shots are for real, it’s not trick photography or fancy editing. He even knows how to promote it on his facebook page. It’s uncanny how technically savvy he is.
Now, he and his friends are hard at work on a new one. This time he’s using a slingshot he recently bought (with his own money) to slingshot basketballs into the hoop in our backyard, and at various community centers in the area. Here’s a picture I took on Sunday. (Can you tell I’m just figuring out how to post videos and pictures on here?)
Keeps him busy, that’s for sure. Gotta love the energy.
