“Real Estate Confessions” #HairRaisingBarks #ReModeledBathrooms #OneWitness

I hate it when I’m all alone shooting a house that feels creepy.

You’re downstairs and you hear creaks upstairs.  It’s windy outside, so it could easily be the weather acting on the infrastructure of the house.

You leave the room and door closes behind you.  Hmm.  Perhaps the hinge was installed wrong so it’s leaning towards the door.

There’s always an explanation for anything that’s creepy in this world.

But when you’re all alone in a house, sometimes you lose the ability to logically dissect a situation.

Fear is overwhelmingly strong in these cases.

I have a theory, where fear is extremely potent wave of energy that is emitted from your body.  It tends to attract that which you fear the most.

You’re scared that someone might break-up with you, they break-up with you.

You’re scared of losing a basketball game, you lose the basketball game.

You’re afraid of making a mistake during a piano recital, your performance ends up being dry.

So when I hear things in a house, I’m not sure if fear is making me extra sensitive to normal creaks within the house …

Or that the negative energy (my fear) emitting from my body is causing the noise.

I remember watching a horror movie, where the family keeps on moving from one house to another assuming that the houses are all haunted.

In the end, they realize they’re son is the one that was possessed.  They assume the problem was the house, but the problem resided inside their own family.

That could relate to me too.  I’m the only common factor in all the haunted houses I’ve visited.

It could also relate to the next haunted house I shot.

New Video: Think Like A Dog

Just posted a video of me playing a dog.

I came up with the concept for this after doing a bunch of “Shit … Says” Videos (Shit Beliebers Say, Shit Drunk Girls Says).  I was thinking it’d be funny to see what a Dog would really say to us, if they could talk and we could understand.

My favorite part of the video would definitely be the belly rub.  I could never understand why dogs seemed to love that so much.  It’s like they are super-sensitive down there.  In the video I equated the dog belly rub to the best feelings humans can have: sex.  Hopefully it doesn’t offend any dog lovers out there … :).

The hardest thing about making this video is always being on all fours.  Human body were never made to be on all fours all the time.  I noticed my knees being soft and tender mid way through the shoot.  I tried once to run on all fours like a dog.  Bad idea!

I changed the title from “Shit Dogs Says” to “Think Like A Dog” because last Friday a new movie came out called “Think Like A Man” with Kevin Hart.

I thought it would be great to promote my video as an unofficial sequel to the movie.  I was trying to piggy back on all the popularity from the #1 video during its opening weekend.

We’ll see how many more views that little stunt will give me.

I recorded more then I could chew off, so expect a second video when I get around to producing it.

Equipment used:

  1. Camera:  Canon 3ti
  2. Lens: Canon 18-135mm efs f/3.5-5.6

  4. Editing:  Adobe Premiere CS5
