Bug? What bug? More like an infestation.

So if any of you follow Jim Jannard on his website, you will know he shares no love for the HDSLR movement. For obvious reasons in my opinion. They are flying off the shelves, while delays and new directions have pushed back the release of Scarlet for quite a while. He also has a very powerful line of cameras that don’t employ line skipping, and shoot upwards of 5-6K (and higher). They also have overcranking, which makes me weak in the knees. Read on…

More behind the scenes from “The Last 3 Minutes”

He’s out there like no other Hollywood D.P. seeking to educate and lift the small and independent film community. It takes a tremendous amount of time and dedication to produce production notes as our contributors have learned, let alone to produce behind the scenes videos. So I hope that you enjoy these two videos and that you pay attention and learn something from one of the greats! More great production write-up to come :) Read on…

Demo for Brody Dezember Photography

I haven’t really posted much of what I have been doing. I’ve pretty much been shooting weddings for the past few months with little time to pursue other “things”. However, I did take a detour for a few days and put together a profile for my buddy Brody Dezember. It’s a short “about” film for Brody to play for his clients “in-studio” and possibly show at wedding shows. Read on…
