The Traditional Self Serving Post

You guys probably don't know a whole lot about me, but the you might be able to guess as to what I enjoy doing. Video, music, and other types of media production are things that I really love to do. I plan on going into film as an academic major, because I think film and music are the two most powerful mediums for communication in this day and age. The incredible part is, you can combine both elements to create a product that can speak to almost any audience.

With this in mind, I started a film production group of my own, which I named Economy Of Mercy Films, after the Switchfoot song of the same title.
In the economy of mercy
I am a poor and begging man
In the currency of Grace
Is where my song begins
In the colors of Your goodness
In the scars that mark your skin
Is where my song begins

Economy of Mercy films is dedicated to the creation of films that center on this hope. We wish to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. Our goal is to glorify the one who saved us from our self inflicted demise. Our films are not pulpits and our desire is not to preach. But God has placed a burden on our heart to participate in something meaningful, and film is our outlet.

Welcome to the Economy of Mercy. We are bruised and broken masterpieces. But we did not paint ourselves


The most recent film I shot and edited, is entitled "Move Your Feet," and is based on another of my favorite Switchfoot songs, "Love Is The Movement." It was created for the one minute Film Your Issue contest, as were two other entries of mine: "Lonely Nation" and "(Take A) Risk."I didn't expect anything to come of any of these entries, but amazingly, "Move Your Feet" was recently selected as a Semi-Finalist in the contest.

So in the traditional manner of a traditionally self serving post, I was just wondering if any of you soldiers of the "foot" would be interested in voting for my film. You don't have to feel obligated, but I sure would appreciate it.

You can vote for the film by going to:
Film Your Issue > Click VOTE NOW

Or go to the direct VOTING PAGE:

You have no idea how much I would appreciate your support, should you choose to give it.
