When I Grow Up from The Academy on Vimeo.

Colin Hesterly recently created “When I Grow Up,” his latest short film that explores a young boy’s dreams for the future.  While possibly intended for children, as with all great stories it has even deeper meaning for adults.  A powerful message is a story that lives is a story that’s told.  Sage advice also for photographers is, as we grow up, let us always remain children at heart.


Hesterly’s own words about the film:

“As a kid my imagination was my closest friend, and I spent a lot of time dreaming about my future. I wanted to explore the jungles like Indiana Jones, or search the oceans alongside Captain Nemo. Over time I caught on that these people were just fictional characters but that spirit of imagination and adventure never left. I eventually had to “grow up” and become an adult. So I choose to pursue a career that was founded on the ideas of exploration and imagination. I chose to become a filmmaker, and “When I Grow Up” is a just a simple reminder of those dreams.”
