Matt Ballard is a cool dude. And he’s a fantastic filmmaker. He’s somebody that uses the tools he’s got, makes the most out of them and produces some seriously great work. He’s akin to Jecory ‘1200’ Arthur & The Junkyard Hawks- they use what’s around them to make great things. The key to their success is that they don’t let not having the best tools keep them from working. They embrace their challenges and rise up. It’s a true winner’s attitude.
With that said, having new and better tools can really give someone a leg up. And Matt Ballard has used his skills to enter a contest to win some pro tools. And I, like many, saw his video on Facebook being shared around and it just caught my eye. Because his video shows the true nature of the determination it takes when you have to hack things together to make stuff work, but you do it because you’re so passionate about it that all the struggles seem insignificant to the joy of the process.
