dying to live – ethan johnson

ethan johnson - visual storyteller

in the last year i’ve developed some friendships with some amazing students at our ashland campus. one in particular ~ ethan johnson has a keen gift for the visual. he just completed the reel dreams fim festival at regents and walked away with the 2010 Audience Favorite Award for his entry entitled “dying to live“. the top 7 competitors received an all expense trip to Regent’s campus and then the final award selection. Its impressive to see Ethan’s talents against others. Its also impressive to see the next generation of dreamers who, with new technology are leveraging the art of story telling.

here’s the wrap-up video from the competition last weekend at Regent.  Its worth the watch just to hear the passion in the voices of 7 incredible young people and the motivation behind their craft with film-making.  so cool!

    Wicked cool! Do you think you could connect me with him? Should I know him? Let me know, he does great work. What’s his plan for the summer?
