One of the biggest holidays are coming up...at least in Jordan's eyes...his birthday. Ever since Christmas, he has been asking me how many more days until his birthday...I am so glad "they have an app for that"...172 more days Jordan.
Ever since I started creating movies for others, I promised Renee' that I would never get too busy to create them of our kids. I can't say I have not gotten too busy to create them, but I have found a way to continue to create them throughout the years...I'm not doing anything from 1AM to 6AM anyways right?
Each year Jordan has a theme for his birthday party, usually chosen 6 months in advance. With every theme we try tie it to his annual birthday video and show it at the party or send it as a DVD invitation. In the past it has been, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and this year he threw us a curve ball, "Dad, this year I want an art party". Wow, an art party, how do you create a video about art. I gave it a few months to sink in...still nothing...what if it was only 30 seconds long?...still nothing. In his past movies Jordan has played the part of Jordan Skywalker and Indiana Jordan. I asked Jordan, "what should we call this movie", he replied "Jordan Picasso", in his best French accent. At least now we have a title, which was very fitting since that has been Jordan's nick name ever since he was 2 and he colored the neighbor boys entire face blue and his own countless times. Jordan has always loved art, and if you ask him what he is going to be when grows up, he will confidently say, "an artist". Okay, an artist video it is for sure now, but I still don't have a clue what it looks like.
Renee' & I started brainstorming the idea together...and leave it up to Renee' to come up with the most brilliant idea. I can't give away all the details yet but it involves nature, a very creative boy and A LOT of paint. The video will debut right here on this blog on June 3rd, in time for his June 22nd birthday. Until then, here is a shot from behind the scenes of "Jordan Picasso"
