It has been a long time in the making, but I finally finished the project I began working on in April. These movies aren’t easy to make. Not only do you have to be focused and patient on location, you have to keep the muse going when you get back home. That being said, it is totally worth it! I’m more than happy with how it turned out. I really hope you like it too. If you have any questions about it, feel free to leave a comment. You can also find several of the locations from the movie in my ‘Behind The Scenes’ gallery on facebook.

About The Music: Sixteen Horsepower, the band featured in the Southwestern, is a band with its roots here in Colorado. Growing up they were more myth than reality. Before I was old enough to see them at a bar, I would sit outside the clubs hoping to catch a listen.They are a storied band, with a long history, and these songs will never do them justice. You will at least get a taste of the Denver music scene, but to truly understand the genius of Sixteen Horsepower, you need to see them live. I intended the playlist to be 16 songs long, however iTunes only accepted 9 of my suggestions.

    Just hooked up with Sixteen Horsepower on iTunes…picked up your list and the live album. Great stuff, reminds me a bit of Otis Taylor ~ there is an underlying urgency and tension in their music that is very similar….

    cheers ~ jeff

  8. Great movie!!! I love timelapse, and know exactly what you are talking about when you say these aren’t easy to make. I am currently about 2/3 of the way done with a Bella Napoli one. So much time is needed to sit and wait for all the photos to finish. Then the actual editing, processing…. Well done my friend!

    • Thanks Adam! Yeah, shooting movies can take some serious patience. I would love to see the movie you are working on, please let me know when you are finished!

      Thanks again.
