Oak and Cypress // A New Wedding Adventure

clayton stringer

I'm happy to announce that we have re-branded! Four years ago when I (Clayton), started Stringer Productions, it was really a freelance portfolio site for weddings and corporate projects. What ended up happened surprised me, as it slowly became a full blown production company. 

During that process I met some great filmmakers and story-tellers to join the team and I can tell you right now that I would be nowhere without them. With that being said we have split our business into two separate companies: One for weddings, one for corporate. Today I wanted to share our new wedding Company, Oak & Cypress ( oakandcypress.co )
 
The name came from one of my favorite quotes by Kahlil Gibran in the book the prophet:

"You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore. 
Love one another, but make not a bond of love.
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. And stand together yet not too near together.
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow."

Instagram Postcards

If you have spent more than two seconds on my website you have probably picked up on the fact that I enjoy filming while traveling... In fact I have a whole tab for travel videos in the main menu of my website. I haven't released a new one recently but that isn't because I haven't been traveling, it's just because I haven't really done a long big trip that has a larger story to tell (That will soon change though!)

I have however been posting postcards though from the small trips I have been taking the last few months to my instagram account, and thought I would share some on the blog. I love the 15 second max time requirements that instagram requires for video. It forces me to tell the story quickly and effectively and it also allow me to do a lot less filming while I'm traveling which helps keep me present and able to experience things with my own two eyes instead of just my camera lens!

So here are some of the most recent postcards I have made. Some from far away, and some from right in my backdoor here in Austin, TX. If you would like to follow along, you can follow my instagram account here

Take Care!

Goals // 2015

I'll be honest, New Years resolutions have never been my thing. Good thing it's January 12th and we can go ahead and forget the term resolution and just call this goals or things to strive for. Right? So here is not to another year, but another day of trying to steer the ship in the right the direction and make the very best of this short time I have. Cheers!

 

1. Execute on Dreams

It seems like I see best with my eyes closed these days. Ideas are constatly coming in and I am always dreaming of what is next. This can sometimes get it the way of following through with the dreams that I would like to actually accomplish. So time to make some of the dreams a reality (or at least take a good swing at making them a reality)

2. Organize and Follow through in Order to execute on dreams

This is not my greatest quality, organization. But over the years I have gained a big respect for organization and realize that in order to accomplish and execute, organization is key. 

3. Convince people with actions not words 

I'm so sick of talk. I really am. People are always spewing opinions around and telling people what is right and wrong. True impact is something sought after, not enforced. I've just decided that this will be the year that I will talk less and show more. Deal with it. 

4. Iceland

Definitly a tough one to accomplish, but going to Iceland has been on the top of my list for way too long. This is the year I am going to make a big push to pull it off. 

5. Direct a Documentary

Maybe more news of this in the near future! Stay Tuned. 

6. Trust the Ol' Gut

This one is kinda vague. Lets just say I learned this past year that if you don't trust your gut, your just asking for trouble. If I get a gut feeling this year, I'm rolling with it. 

7. Discover way more new music

I would never in my life think that I would have to have a goal for finding new music. I am a huge music fan and I think between the stress and chaos of 2014, I wasn't able to discover as much as I would've liked. Time for that to change. So if you have any good new music your listening to, pass it along!

8. Blog more

Hey-O! Accomplishing that right now. Lets do it some more!
