Tonight I sat in a movie theatre along side 200 people and watched my Christopher’s beautiful work.
The lights dimmed and the soft glow of the screen light reflected on people’s faces. I scooted up in my chair and looked around. I soaked in people munching on popcorn and their eyes enthralled with the screen before them.
Tonight every person in that theatre was there to watch his work. His art. The pictures and images and music…everything dancing together for one purpose to entertain, to make people think, to move people’s souls.
2 years ago Chris quit his job ( we had not a dime in our bank account) and he started his own film company. In a two week period he had all the equipment he needed and 2 new computers from the jobs that he booked. Since then he has taken on clients such a Dickies, McDonalds and RedBull. And has made a series of his own short films.
He created his first movie in the 5th grade with 2 VHS players. He came from little and his motto is :
“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
― Arthur Ashe
Chris has the gift of taking something simple and creating something amazingly beautiful.
Just yesterday I was talking to Aiden and I said, ” You know Aiden, God has given each of gifts that we are to share with the world. And your daddy’s is that he makes beautiful things. Beautiful Images. He tells stories and he captures people’s hearts. “
I really and truly believe in my heart that we were each given gifts as part of our purpose and sharing those with the world is a way that we can return these gifts to Him.
I could not have been more proud tonight. Through cloudy eyes and a beaming smile I got to see Christopher bless people with his beautiful gift.
In case you have never seen Chris’ work before, I will share a few!
You can see his New York City Time lapse here or our 4th of July fun here!
