I began my experimentation with film in late 2019 with the Hawaii Filmmakers Collective. Little did I know we were about to enter one of the strangest times to learn to produce film - during COVID lockdown.
Nevertheless, my film friends and I persisted under the new requirements which included making films outside, masking up, social distancing, limiting group sizes, testing, and navigating uncomfortable conversations.
Now that I am in Central Florida, I am seeking my filmmaking community and focusing on Morgan in the Moment vlog.
Morgan in the Moment Vlog
A photographer's digital diary on YouTube launched in November 2021 when I sold all of my belongings and embarked on a 32-day road trip before arriving back in my home town in Central Florida. Includes random musings on travel, photography, philosophy, tears, funny stuff, and sometimes food and baths.
