Dark Side of the Lens - Mickey Smith
“Life on the road is something I was raised to embrace. Me Ma always encouraged us to open our eyes and our hearts to the world, make up our own minds for experience of being inspired. I see life in angles, in lines of perspective, a slight turn of the head, the blink of an eye, subtle glimpses of magic other folk might pass by. Cameras help me translate, interpret and understand what I see. It’s a simple act that keeps me grin’n. I never set out to become anything in particular, only to live creatively and push the scope of my experience for adventure, through passion. Still all of it means something to me, same as most anyone with dreams. My heart bleeds Celtic blood and I am magnetized to familiar frontiers: broad, brutal, cold coastlines for the right waveriders to challenge. This is where my heart beats hardest.”
Amazing short film from a seriously talented individual. Anyone who’s looking for a bit of inspiration should check this out.
