Great day exploring Venice Beach and Santa Monica Pier. ☀️🎥 I even got a custom poem made by someone on the street. I gave him a subject which was TRAVEL, here it is: "Stepping outside yourself, you wander embracing unknown territories, letting your soul feel lonely, as a stranger on an adventure discovering the world outside as well as the regions within yourself you never knew existed."

Here's a cool shot I found the other day. The year before last I was producer on a short film called @channellingtheecho * Here I believe we were testing the large LED screen. I remember lots of laughter and excitement at 1am in the morning in Leichhardt when the technicians finally switched on the screen, ready for production the following day. Exciting times!

Momentum.🎥 Momentum. 🎥Momentum.🎥 Is the number one word that resonated with me in 2017 and will continue to in 2018. If I slack off for literally just one day the next day won't be as productive. I have to keep going even if I'm tired and transcend pain and fear to remain motivated and focused on the daily. What's one word that resonates with you? Comment below. @tye_bate #best9

Almost finished with a very special project. 🎥🖥 It's been tough trying to find the time during the end of year chaos to get it done, but with a little bit of work ethic and determination I'm proud to say that I'm almost ready to export and send to my client. 😊✌🏾

What a year 😊😂😜😲It's literally flashed before my eyes. A short breath and its over. Exactly one year ago I graduated film school, and was about to continue studying. After some sleepless nights I decided to bail and enter the 'real' world. Probably the best decision I could have made. I started to invest in my own filming equipment. I worked full time as a video editor, freelanced on the side and volunteered on as many short film shoots as possible. One of the short films randomly led to an exciting mid-year opportunity, which was to embark on the Kokoda trek with @chocolateboxtraining as a videographer 🎥. That Trek alone opened my eyes to a whole new world 🌎. I was then offered to work at Chocolate Box full time. I said "YES". It's been such a fun ride making creative video content and flying to Borneo and Phuket. I sat down yesterday to reflect on 2017 and set some new goals to take action on in 2018. I circled the most important goal and that was to become the best storyteller. What an awesome year! Thanks all for following the journey thus far.
