Excited to announce our film Love Everlasting will be released Nov. 15 2016 worldwide. This is the first independent film I’ve worked on as a producer, and I am also very honored that my images were selected to be used in the posters. There will be a premiere in Hollywood on the 9th, and I will have more details to come soon, probably within the next few days. There are many, many people who spent many long hours making this happen, it’s a beautiful story and I would so be thrilled if you all watched it! Thank you for your support! #loveeverlastingmovie
TBT 1998 BYU Football Media pictures – Hans Olsen being his silly normal self. He was seriously always doing something funny. Strange thing was on this day, we all had to take suit pics from the waist up and then have our uniform pictures on the field, so this was a normal thing. Hans had a way of taking something that should be normal and turning it into comedy which is why I’m laughing at his expression.
