Perseverance - A Personal Film [2018]

December 24, 2018, 11:00 PM · Mental health is something that has become more and more important to me throughout the course of this year, and as we get closer to 2019, I think it will become even more important to keep us motivated, whether in our practicing or in life in general. I came up with the idea to do this short music video/film during an hour-long walk, and came home, pulled out my violin, and filmed it that afternoon. I just finished the editing this morning before a lovely afternoon of composing (more on that sometime soon - my Chaplin score is coming along!).

On this Christmas Eve, I hope this will be something enjoyable to listen to. I was going for a bit of a Hollywood, pop vibe, and this is the result. If you watch it, I hope you enjoy it - I'm quite proud of it all things considered.

Either way, have a wonderful Christmas!
