Johnny + Meaghan Wedding Day Film

// October 28th, 2011 // Comments Off // Uncategorized

Here’s a look at a wedding day highlight film I recently completed in conjunction with Bryan Allen – Bryan has a nice blog post with a preview of the still images from the wedding. The venue is Dara’s Garden in Knoxville, TN – what a great location! A behind-the-scenes edit will follow shortly of the photography during the course of the day. Congratulations to Johnny and Meaghan – here’s wishing you all the best in life!

A Great Headache

// August 14th, 2011 // Comments Off // DLSR Fusion, Motion

I’m excited to announce the release of a music video project I had the privilege of contributing to over the last several months. Congratulations to Joey + Rory on the release of their new song and video, Headache! The video was recently picked up by GAC and should start rotating in their lineup over the next few days if you want to see it on the tube.

I had the pleasure of working creatively with J+R and Bryan Allen earlier this spring to begin shaping this idea and producing what we think has become a great result. Working with a terrific group of volunteers and extras, we completed the footage capture over a single day – roughly 12 hours of shooting between two locations.

Not only was I involved on the production, but I also got to play my hand in post with some editing and color grading. This was a great chance to road test several techniques and I learned a lot in the process. Without hesitation, it was a fantastic experience with lots of collaboration and I’m looking forward to the next opportunity.

A few behind-the-scenes images from the shoot…

DIY Skater Dolly

// February 24th, 2011 // Comments Off // DLSR Fusion, Do-It-Yourself, Motion, Uncategorized

For some time I’ve wanted to assemble a simple tabletop dolly that would enable me to explore some some unique camera movements in my work. I finally gathered the short list of materials and spent about an hour assembling my version of a DIY Skater Dolly this past weekend. Below is a quick clip of some test shots along with some photos of the rig. If you’re interested in building your own, a google search will reveal numerous online resources to get you started.
