Winged Victory of Samothrace at the Louvre

As one of the most recognizable statues within the Louvre in Paris, France, the Winged Victory of Samothrace is unmissable at the top of the Daru staircase. Also known as Nike of Samothrace, this Greek sculpture dates back to 190 BC and has been on display at the Louvre since 1884.

Production Winding Down & New Edit Suite

Since getting back from travel shoots earlier this month it's been an exhausting blur. 

Production on the Monarch documentary is finally winding down as post-production ramps up for June. There are still a lot of moving pieces behind the scenes, a bit more b-roll scheduled, but it's exciting to finally have a grasp on just how much has been uncovered for this movie. 




The final interview of the doc was filmed today and just last week I finished building the new edit suite .... although full disclosure, I immediately changed the desktop backdrops to a neutral image after snapping the picture of the build. I'm just a few steps away from the full on Minority Report screens lol - but it's cool to have so much versatility between layouts / displays.

Mostly, I just wanted to share how excited I am to see this all coming together after the months so many people have invested into making this possible. We're just a few more months away from having a finished movie. Stay tuned as these last few chapters unfold.

Savi's Workshop Lightsaber at Walt Disney World

Building a lightsaber at Savi's Workshop in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Walt Disney World is perhaps one of the most ridiculous and exclusive upcharges within Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

Don't get me wrong, building a custom lightsaber is a lot of fun and a really unique park souvenir, but the experience required a weeks in advance reservation and roughly $300 CAD to do. For the sake of doing Galaxy's Edge to the fullest extent it was one of the top things I told myself I had to do while visiting Walt Disney World during the 50th celebrations. I'll be the first to admit that not everyone will see the value, but honestly, I still get a kick out of this thing.
