Long long time ago, maybe even in a galaxy far away,
I discovered a camera.
It was already quite old, but it was awesome. The finder was on a side, and I could look from above and take photos of people unaware of what I was doing. I loved those photos. I stashed them in a box, with negatives and memories of my brief darkroom experience. I loved those moments of time captured ‘forever’.
Then I left.
I moved into faraway lands.
By the time I visited again, my precious box was gone.
I lost my treasure.
‘Forever’ dissolved into nothing.
Then another part of my past, just like that little box,
disappeared in an unusual way.
But I kept my camera.
She traveled with me wherever I went.
I traded it for a more modern model.
I swapped the stillness and simplicity of an image
for a craze of filmmaking
while I may have lost some resolution,
I found motion and sound.
…and new memories.

What’s in the name?
ZGecko Productions – there is a whole story hidden behind the name, but I prefer to say it in person to an interested audience. It’s not what you expect. Like most of my life stories, it’s wilder and stranger.
SERENE or SRENE Anchor Productions – my umbrella for the 48hr film project films. While we made “10-999” under the name “Team Bozeman,” with subsequent projects I felt a more appropriate name would be an acronym SERENE. It’s a climbing lingo, and represents safety rules when setting up an anchor while climbing. I chose it because I wanted this to be like that anchor allowing the one on top to safely belay the next person in their ascent.
