I’ve just launched a new project, 12 in 2012, where I’ll be writing, shooting, directing, editing a short film a month in 2012. Help me do this by donating to my kickstarter!
So back in May I shot and edited a music video for one of my favorite “local” bands, The Winter Sounds.
We didn’t really have a plan but the video turned out pretty OK:
I talked to Patrick and the gang after a show just this week. Hopefully we’ll be whipping up something new really soon. And this time we’ll do a little more pre-production if we’re going to shoot the whole video in one night.
Back in the Spring I was Director of Photographer on a feature film. The film has shown in several theaters to good response.
You can check out the trailer below:
I’m gearing up to shoot another in a few weeks…hopefully with more stunning results!
So I just finished acting as Director of Photography on my first feature film, Chris White’s Taken In. We shot the entire film on location at South of the Border, right outside Dillon, SC. We shot the film on a Canon 5D Mark II, but I kept a late-60s model Polaroid Colorpack II with me for most of the shoot…to ensure continuity or something. At least that was my excuse.
We spent the first day on location scouting spots where the various scenes would take place. That included the amusement park. Awesome. I shot in black in white using Fuji FP-3000B to preview the locations without color.
Madelaine Hoptry (or “Hops” as I labeled her), who plays Brooklyn in the film, enjoyed letting me sneak up and scare her many times throughout the shoot. This was taken just a few minutes after the first time…it wasn’t so bad.
Tim Brosnan plays Brooklyn’s father, Simon, in the film. Tim was well acquainted with my lens by the end of the shoot. And I with his…
Pedro’s Pleasure Done was where we were to shoot the pool scene the next day. This would bode well for the film’s aesthetic.
A few months ago, I had the pleasure of acting as Director of Photography on Chris White’s short film Good Life. It was my first time shooting a film with a DSLR, and I could definitely get used to the control you have shooting video with fast prime lenses. See the completed film below:
