Hi! I’m Ethan. I’m a filmmaker from Griffin, GA. This blog will chronicle my adventures in my favorite medium of art as I try to make my way in this world. You may also find posts about photography, writing, environmental conservation, and other subjects that I find interesting. Thank you for stopping by and feel free to let me know how you like things!
