Oliver's Smile

Brandon's Birthday

Brandon hates his birthday. He has for as long as he can remember.  I hate that.  I love my birthday.  I have tried every year to make it special for him.  I think I am making some progress, but he won't admit it.  This year I made him a gift of pictures of the boys.  I am posting the final product as well as some of the pictures I took trying to get the right one.  Surprisingly, Oliver was easier to get a good smile than the other two.

48 Hour Film Festival

When I got up at 4 am to feed Oliver this is where I found Brandon.  He had been up editing the film and just crashed.  I literally had to drag him up the stairs to bed.  He did not remember any of it the next day.  During the 48 hours he only got 4 hours of sleep.  He took all week to recover.

Brandon participated in the 48 Hour Film Festival again this year.  It is a film making competition where the participants are given 48 hours to make a film.  Friday night they are given a genre, a prop, a occupation, and a line that they must use in the film.  The film must be 4-7 minutes long.  This year Brandon's group got Thriller/Suspense, the prop was a certificate, the occupation was roommate, the line was "Whoa, I didn't see that coming.".   (Everyone was confused about the occupation roommate.)  He made a film about a foursome that gets stuck in an abandoned psychiatric ward and finds their doom.  Spencer, Melanie, and James all got to be a part of the movie acting as ghosts.  
This is Brandon and I at the screenings of the movies.  
Brandon's team won 2 awards.  "Best Make-up"  "Best Special Effects"

Some random pictures...

I almost caught a smile

Spencer and Chandler love to follow Brandon around when he is filming.  This particular event was a hula recital. 

Spencer took the camera and made Chandler pose.  This was one of the shots he got.
