I’m loving my time up here in NYC. I missed the city life a lot! My goal is to one day be bi-coastal. I wanna have a place in LA and a place in NYC. I give myself 15 years for that goal and it all begins with moving out to LA in 6 weeks! Lets get to work!!
The countdown is on! It’s official, in less than 2 months I’ll be living in Los Angeles! I can’t wait. I’ll be flying back out in 3 weeks to find an apartment and then shortly after I’ll be moving. I’m really excited and I know that this is definitely a huge step in the right direction. LA, see you soon!
I have finally set the goal date to move out west to Los Angeles, CA and that date is October 2013! This should hopefully give me plenty enough time to pay off my debt and save up a ton of money. LA is super expensive and I wanna make sure that I’m 110% prepared. I don’t wanna be another statistic of people who move out to LA to advance their career and run out of money and have to move back to their home state after 6 months. My move to LA is completely career oriented and I need to be ready for whatever happens.
LA is amazing and I absolutely love it out there! Luckily, I have several friends that live out there so I went to go visit this past February which got me super excited and motivated to get things rolling on the move out there! My friends are great tour guides and showed me all of the famous LA spots. It felt amazing being out there in the entertainment capital of the world and I can only imagine how it will feel living there. The best way for me to describe LA is the combination of New York and Miami but with mountains everywhere! I really love living in South Florida but I think it’s my time to make a major change and take my career to the next level. I truly believe that at this point the only way to move up is to move west. Almost any television show or movie you watch was filmed in LA. Dexter and CSI: Miami are obviously both based on Miami but are both filmed in LA, which is a great reason of why I need to be out there.
When I do move out there the big goal is to eventually direct big budget films. However, I know that is going to take time before I get to that level. In the meantime, I am going to do whatever it takes to get on those sets as a Production Assistant and work my way up. Any movie or network television show that I can get on I will. My biggest thing is networking. I network like crazy down here in South Florida. Anytime I meet someone I always work into that first conversation that I’m a Filmmaker and Music Video Director. You really never know who you are going to meet. I have spent the last few years building myself up as a brand “Gary Dunkel – Filmmaker & Music Video Director” and I will continue to do so in LA. The day I arrive in LA I’m going to start networking as much as I can. I want to meet anyone and everyone. I also plan on doing a lot of studying on the art of directing. I really wanna hone my skills in that area and become an amazing director.
I’m incredibly focused on the goal right now and I’m working extremely hard to get there! I believe that as long as you stay focused, motivated, and proactive that there is nothing you can’t achieve. Los Angeles, I will see you in 1 year and 3 months!
[VEGAS IN MOTION] shows the movement of Las Vegas! The entire video is a montage of various different time lapses that I shot all around Las Vegas. Most of the time lapses have been shot from my hotel rooms at the Excalibur Hotel, Monte Carlo, & Caesars Palace! After watching Phillip Blooms Las Vegas Time Lapse video, I was inspired to create my own. Las Vegas is one of my new favorite cities and I really wanted to show the world how amazing the vegas strip really is. I shot the entire video on my Canon Rebel T2i DSLR using a Shoot Timer Remote. Please share this with all of your friends!!!
This is my first official time-lapse of the Miami skyline! I was shooting the skyline across the bay by the MacArthur Causeway. This time lapse was created by using 5 second intervals on the Shoot Timer Remote. All together it took 598 photos to complete this time-lapse and almost 2 hours!
