I want this blog to be about the person who is the filmmaker rather than Geoff Browne the filmmaker. People have told me I'm a complex person. That may be true as there is always a lot going on up there due to the fact that I'm fascinated by all the POVs and angles that one can view any person or situation. If I wasn't, then I'd be somewhat useless behind the camera. But the truth is, my main focus is always on simplicity. The simplicity of beauty that is often frozen and transparent in the midst of chaos and corruption. That is what drives me when I shot. First I allow beauty to frame me in its innate stillness...then I frame the shot.
I see the whole range of my life as an adventure, not just when I get on a plane and take off for the far regions of Tibet. But when I meet a friend for coffee, or talk to someone who likes my work but has a lot to say about it. And every one of these experiences is packed with potential grist for the mill in terms of characters, settings or whatever may spontaneously occur for my continuing journey. I'm starting with some stories that have stuck in my mind since high school, and hope you can somehow mentally assemble all the parts of me - and most importantly, that you enjoy reading , the videos and the images.
