Michael Giacchino Oscar Winner For Music (Original Score) For The Film UP Acceptance Speech...

Thank you, guys. When I was... I was nine and I asked my dad, "Can I have your movie camera? That old, wind-up 8 millimeter camera that was in your drawer?" And he goes, "Sure, take it." And I took it and I started making movies with it and I started being as creative as I could, and never once in my life did my parents ever say, "What you're doing is a waste of time." Never. And I grew up, I had teachers, I had colleagues, I had people that I worked with all through my life who always told me what you're doing is not a waste of time. So that was normal to me that it was OK to do that. I know there are kids out there that don't have that support system so if you're out there and you're listening, listen to me: If you want to be creative, get out there and do it. It's not a waste of time. Do it. OK? Thank you. Thank you. -Michael Giacchino

OK...Thank you Michael for that awesome speech, I was worried that I was wasting my time at certain moments. When I turned from watching another program, you were accepting your award. I LISTENED to your speech that it's now one my favorite quotes, speeches, and I had to blog it. Last year I was gifted a G10 for my 26 bday from two amazing people (who are great supporters). And I haven't really separated from my camera since. I carry it almost everyday and I'm no photographer, but I know I love taking photos for inspiration. In the field of work I'm doing it's only to go UP from here and I truly believe that...THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for being inspiration...
