We had the good fortune of connecting with Enternational Film and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Enternational, what principle do you value most?
Respect. A feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.
In today’s high-speed internet society, where knowledge and information can spread instantly, individuals are now able to master skills that were once considered unattainable. For our younger generations that are now spearheading the creative movement we see today, this has proven to be a gift and a curse. In my opinion, most students will disregard the need for further research into a particular field of study when the information is acquired using little effort. From this lack of notice, they tend to overlook the efforts, gifts, and services of many, just to give praise to a selected few.
Nearly every conversation you spot on social media is about who is the G.O.A.T., or Greatest of All Time. That’s all that seems to matter. Consequently, some of history’s most talented contributors get disrespected for their lack of “style points.” When the truth is that every aspiring basketball player’s career won’t end up like Michael Jordan’s. Moreover, every would-be music producer will not make as many hits as Quincy Jones; however, they can work hard to leave an impactful mark in their respective industries. And ultimately, they’ll want people to hear about their story (whether good or bad). Yet, how can one expect others to have a desire to learn the details of how they persevered, if they’ve never taken the time to explore the plethora of men and women that have paved the way for them to be seen/heard, simply because he or she may not have been crowned pop culture royalty?
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Here at Enternational, our mission is “to reproduce the beauty of life’s moments, by imaging the reflections of light.” I was chosen as Director of Photography due to my highly creative background and unique perspectives on life. From behind the lens, my role is to use the most alluring angles to compose a tiny piece of the world. As a visual mathematician, I’m able to frame each shot with an intuitive style that allows me to execute our client’s vision without restraint.
It’s never easy transforming your creative interest and skills into a viable product or service that the public will value, but if you are truly passionate about your work, let that passion be the force that guides you through any difficulties you may encounter. Once you realize that all the time you’ve spent preparing for a chance to display your talents has given you the competencies needed to sustain a thriving career, you’ll be able to appreciate even the hardest of struggles you encountered along your journey.
When it comes to the disciplines of art, film, and entertainment, Enternational Film does not adhere to any boundaries or limitations set by societal trends and norms. We strive to provide our clients with exclusive content that will set them apart from their peers and competitors. Our vantage point is incomparable to any other service provider in the world.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
The Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex is filled with interesting places and things to explore. As I meet more and more creatives in the area, I’ve come to find there’s always something happening in the DF-dub. I’d personally set up a week filled with activities you could only experience in the DFW area. Definitely a trip to the Arts District, a Mavericks game, a little recreation at one of the many lakefronts or city parks, and of course some great food and nightlife experiences. I also enjoy comedy sets, dance/theater performances, and live music events, so it’s sure to be a fun time.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Enternational Film has yet to reach the heights of success that we strive for, but being doubted is always a big motivating factor, so a Shoutout to the haters is definitely warranted.
But seriously, we’d like to commend the Shoutout DFW and VoyageDallas.com staff for highlighting entrepreneurs that are making a change, not only in their chosen profession, but also their communities. Shoutout to you all for establishing a platform where lesser known business professionals and creatives can tell their stories and motivate the next group of aspiring individuals.
We’d also like to credit photographer Dennis “Jaz” Hartfield for his help in assisting us with bigger projects. And last but not least, a big Shoutout goes to Shrimp & Po Boi; the producer/rap duo that handles all of our original music content.
