Video: First Time in Paris


Paris.  Is there any other city that can elicit visions of heart-stopping, magical, cinematic romance?  No.  Woody Allen didn’t direct Midnight in Milwaukee.  Humphrey Bogart couldn’t have told Ingrid Bergman, “We’ll always have Kabul.”  Carrie would not have left New York for Zurich. (Apologies to the aforementioned cities, it’s nothing personal.)  It is only Paris.  A city of faded beauty where the architecture of its buildings effortlessly come together as gracefully as the city’s women pair ensembles of black and navy.  A city that revels in the quiet, personal moments that can only be shared by two people madly in love.  This is a city that many dream of, and I was one of those dreamers.

Oh Hello Eiffel Tower

I present to you the visual snapshot of my first time in Paris.  When I shot this footage I intended only for my parents to see it, as the only downside to this trip was that they couldn’t come along with me.  But the footage eventually became a short video with the initial push from my friend, Milissa, and the editing expertise of my friend, Agrifino.  This is the first of many more like it, but this Paris video will always be the first, as it rightly should be.  Since this trip, I have been fortunate to return to France many times.  So now that the Paris dream has come true more than once over, it’s time to chase another one of my hundreds of other dreams and allow this one to live online to inspire the other Paris dreamers out there.

    Wonderful attitude and beautiful outlook on life. Your personality is an
    inspiration to us all. Your site has inspired creative minds, like
    myself, to continue pursuing their dreams no matter what people say or
    do especially in the often frowned upon Entertainment/ Movie industry nowadays.
    I can tell that this is your true calling in life. Maintain this
    endearing and influential personality and people will begin to realize
    that the world is out there waiting for them to discover what they are
    truly missing in their lives. Hope. You’re a breath of fresh air,
    Vanesa, and thank you for helping me realize the importance of life
    through making the best out of one’s own destiny and budget.
