I was proud to be the cinematographer on this and happy to share it with you. I chose to shoot with the Sony FS700 due to my knowledge of the camera, picture profiles, and the rigging I had available for handheld work. I used the Tilta rig to achieve all the handheld shots.
As I got into my training with Steadicam, I asked Chris Jurchak if he wanted to put together a short video over a weekend. We put together a few locations in Old Town, called my friend Nour (actress) and shot this. I used the Steadicam Pilot and Canon 7D with a few lenses. Chris was the editor on this.
This was a 522 Productions project. I was responsible for the cinematography of this piece. We followed Evan around for a day to document his struggles with diabetes and how Children’s National helps. It is also used to promote the National Diabetes Care Complex. I used the Canon C100 for this piece. Directed and edited by Chris Jurchak.
I was lucky enough to shoot the wedding of Kristin and David. I can honestly say they have been my favorite client to work for of all time. They moved a few things in the ceremony just to ensure me the best shots. The initial meet up only made me more enthusiastic about the wedding and about making a highlight video.
There was a lot going on during the wedding and I needed a second shooter. I brought along David Banks and he did a really good job. Great attitude, fun to work with and constantly shooting until the end of the day.
Their wedding was so much fun and matched their personalities perfectly. Hope you enjoy the trailer I put together. Feel free to comment.
As I have said before on my Twitter account, I am going to be focusing a lot on lighting. Lighting and lenses are going to be my biggest investment to future proof my equipment list and to be able to use with different cameras. Well yesterday I received a custom light kit from Ikan.
Wow. Really. I mean wow. I fell in love with LED lighting ever since I shot with Litepanels. Soft, daylight balanced, and easy/quick to setup. But the price was not justified for my projects. I saw Ikan was doing big things and wanted to know more about their lights. After talking with them for a couple weeks I came up with what I thought would be perfect for my projects and they agreed.
The video explains it all but basically I wanted a 1k and 2 500 LED kit. Well I got it and I love it. For the video I used just one of the 500s for a key. For a one light fill I think it did a great job. Looking forward to using all 3 for a shoot this weekend.
This video just goes over my first impressions and will post a new one next week after using it. After that, I will do a gaffer’s kit video where I will light with them. Hope you all enjoy. Feel free to leave questions or comments below.
A few weeks back I got a call from Dave Ogden about a project he was hired on. It was for two political spots to be aired nationally. Figured it would be a simple lock off interview style with some b-roll. The next thing I remember is Dave asking if I could rent a slider and get a second shooter. Game time! Read more
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I signed up for the event. I already followed Jon, Cristina and Philip on Twitter and really liked the work they would post online. All of them have so much talent and information to share. It was a good chance for me to expand my knowledge on DSLRs and a great way to network with professionals in my area. Read more
